I have to believe this is because 5 points just isnt what it once was. 5 points was awesome in the 70s 80s and 90s..not so much since.

Businesses come and go, it doesnt mean that the area isn't what it once was.
Or maybe it does mean that? After all, who is to say that it should be what it once was? Things change, progress, all based on changing demographics and tastes.

The growth of the Vista for dining probably hurt them, too.

This is a huge factor. The Vista is the far nicer place to eat. If I go to Five Points it is to grab cheap drinks that's about it.

During the day, Five points is great for its eateries like Yesterdays, Groucho's Deli, the Gourmet Shop, and for its boutiques for shopping. At night its filled with USC students and people in their 20's for the bars and drink specials at the bars. Really a great vibe! Love Five Points.

It's okay, but what's so amazing about a microwaved sandwich?

Don't chastise him. There is a whole thread devoted to Hardee's burgers and how magnificent they are.

It is not what it used to be. Quality has gone down hill even on Harden St since they started franchising.
