At long last, the San Diego location of Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles could soon be open.

Why it matters: News that the beloved California soul-food chain was coming broke in 2016, but progress at its Barrio Logan planned location quickly stalled and the site became a neighborhood nuisance.

Catch up quick: CBS 8 reported earlier this year the abandoned property was under city investigation due to regular squatters and drug users taking it over.

Driving the news: Eater online magazine reported last week that construction work was set to resume and the restaurant could open in a few months.

  • Adolfo Moreno, a real estate agent who negotiated Roscoe's acquisition of the location on National Avenue, confirmed to Axios that construction has resumed.
  • "They're hoping to be open in a couple months, but it will probably be more like six," Moreno said.
