Update (April 21): Junior’s Grill at Tech might not close

Junior’s Grill, The Georgia Institute of Technology mainstay at 84 5th Street will close after 63 years due to a decline in business, Technique Newspaper first reported.

Tommy Klemis, owner of Junior’s, told Technique Wednesday that “it’s time to yield to new directions for the school.”

Winfield Featherston, Georgia Tech student, announced the closing Wednesday on the student ran publication powered by SB Nation, From The Rumble Seat.

“This comes as a sad and sudden realization that one more tradition of Georgia Tech will be placed in the archives rather than lived by future freshman,” Featherston said in the report.

“Seriously, who had the best chicken tenders? Juniors!”

Klemis was not immediately available for comment and nothing has been confirmed on what might replace the Georgia Tech grill.
