The establishment shuttered following a Dec. 6, 2014, fire. The restaurant was delayed because of what the owner said was onerous demands from the city of Atlanta.
“I know a lot of people have been waiting a long time for us to reopen and 95 percent of the staff has returned. So it’s like a homecoming,” WGCL-TV quoted cashier and hostess Carey Dozier as saying.
The restaurant first opened in 1987. Earlier this year, a state legislator demanded a Confederate flag inside the eatery be removed when the restaurant re-opened.
According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the flag is on display in the refurbished restaurant.
