Wow, what rock have I been living under that I did not realize that a place I used to hit up regularly when it first opened is now closed? I literally travel 42nd st. regularly and barely caught a glimpse of Genghis Grill. What in the world? What happened? When did it close and why is there graffiti all over the side of the building?

I had not eaten there in ages but when they first opened, I was there often. I decided to check to make sure I wasn't mistaken and maybe they were just closed that particular day but unfortunately, the Facebook page says permanently closed, so I guess I can get my fix in Midland for now.

So now what? I mean how great is that location? In the parking lot of Music City Mall, we cannot let that building go to waste. Clean up the building and get something new in! Suggestions? What should it be now? Another restaurant? A new department store? A Dollar Store? The building is not too big so it can't be anything outrageous unless the new business expands.

SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT SHOULD GO IN THE OLD GENGHIS GRILL ON 42ND ST:

  • a Dollar Store-we can never have too many
  • a new restaurant-just not Mexican food, I already eat enough of that
  • Five Below-similar to Dollar Store but cooler stuff

In other cities, there are typically only restaurants or sports bars in mall parking lots so this short list is all I could come up with. What do you think should take over that empty building in Odessa?
