NeHi - This is what happens when you rely too much on Google Maps. They list is as 177 W. El Camino Real when it should be 177 E. El Camino Real.

Patrick: considering that Google is IN Mountain View, they should know their hometown better than make a goof like that.

If this Burger King is razed then Mountain View would have lost both locations where the eatery used to be. We also lost the one that used to be at San Antonio Shopping Center. I am just so surprised that BK did not want to rent a new location at the renovated center. Go figure.

Since it spread to the roof, I'll bet it was an uncleaned hood over the fry prep and/or flame .broil oven.

That hood is supposed to have a fire suppression system in working order, but it will not catch a fire past the hood entrance. I'll bet the filters in the hood caught fire

This particular Burger King was really shabby looking inside and out. The whole place was so 1980s. Ugly! There were always dirty homeless vagrants lurking around the restaurant and using the restrooms. There's nothing I hate more than some filthy homeless guy or woman, with teeth missing (meth addicts) that ask, "Hey, sir, you got a dollar for the bus?" I say to them, "My cash is all plastic." And they usually grunt something under their breath and go onto bother someone else. I just hate that! If they decide to reopen this facility I hope they give the place a much needed makeover and do something about the filthy stoned vagrants always lurking around the place.
