New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer Thursday could not resist getting a peak at a Burger King that closed more than a decade ago but remained intact.
Meyer posted the video Wednesday of a Burger King space that was never leased to another tenant at the aging mall.
A temporary promotional wall typically used when stores close hid the fast-food spot, with the owner-franchisee or mall ownership never returning to remove seating and equipment.
People Magazine and other sites reported hidden Burger King was first photographed in April.
The photo went viral this week after the tweet below was posted.

The Home of the Whopper even had some leftover trash when Meyer and a mall official took a quick tour of the 1980s-vintage restaurant with teal and mauve decor. Still on hand was seating with an ’80s look and even beverage dispensers.
Concord Mall, which has struggled with a rising vacancy rate over the years, has new owners that are working to attract tenants. The Burger King reported occupied 5,000 square feet.
