An unusual landmark in Reynella is what has become known colloquially as Junk Food Junction or Junk Food Corner. At a time when the fast food market was less saturated, the intersection of South Road, Adelaide and Pimpala Road had all four major fast food outlets: McDonalds, Hungry Jacks, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Currently on this intersection there is McDonalds, KFC, Hungry Jacks, Fasta Pasta, Yiros King, Red Rock noodle bar, Domino's Pizza and a Caltex service station. The derelict site of the former Pizza Hut building has attracted some local controversy[when?] for the amount of time it has taken to redevelop.
