“This year makes 20 years that we have served this community, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 20 years than our move to a brand-new location,” Robertson says.
The restaurant will move from 4501 Main Street to a new, sleek building at 4421 Main Street in mid-January 2023 with a February opening. The new restaurant will change the concept a bit to include a full-service drive through window, full-service indoor dining as well as some outdoor dining options.
