Popular Eatery Taking Over Teays Valley Shoney's
Putnam County, bite this! Fat Patty's is heading our way.
PutnamLIVE.com has confirmed, with restaurant staff and a manager, that the popular eatery is expanding from Cabell County and taking over the former Teays Valley Shoney's.
Renovations are expected to start in November with a Grand Opening sometime in early 2012, we are told.
"We're proud to offer something to everyone," says Owner Clint Altrip, on Fat Patty's web site. "From burgers and sandwiches to salads and dinners, you are sure to find something you'll love. Our full bar includes a large variety of beers on tap. Great food, great price, great place."
The new restaurant will be the third Fat Patty's. The original opened in downtown Huntington. The second is in Barboursville, on U.S. 60 near Steak 'n Shake.
Fat Patty's, and its awesome food, should be a great complement to the highly popular FireSide Grille, which opened a few hundred yards away from Shoney's in February, 2011, and Applebee's as well as Bob Evans which are located at nearby Liberty Square.
Shoney's shocked Putnam County restaurant patrons when it closed June 6th, 2011. However, the chain also closed its Beckley and Logan Restaurants the same day and its Dunbar restaurant after dinner Sunday, October 23rd.
With its roots in Charleston, Shoney's took its popular buffet nationwide but has fallen on hard times in recent years, reducing the number of its restaurants. The original Charleston Shoney's has been torn down and only its Kanawha Boulevard, Kanawha City, and St. Albans restaurants remain in our region.
Hurricane City Manager Benjamin Newhouse says that he almost had a deal for Fat Patty's to move into the Hurricane Marketplace before the Shoney's became available.
In addition, PutnamLIVE.com has learned that Fat Patty's is opening a new Ashland, Kentucky, restaurant.
