The “open and operating” business seeks $225,000 with “some” owner financing available, the listing states. The nearly quarter-million-dollar sales tag includes all the furniture fixtures, equipment, and lease rights — and a new owner could keep the Diesel Filling Station name and concept.

“Please be respectful and do not make any attempt to contact or speak to staff, management, landlord, and/or ownership,” Steven Josovitz of The Shumacher Group writes in the listing.

Diesel Filling Station’s website is no longer online and its Facebook page hasn’t been updated since March 2020.

A new owner would negotiate a new lease and its extensions, and the current rent for the 1,000 square-foot space (which has an additional 750 square feet of extra space for storage and offices) is listed at $7,000 per month.

Diesel Filling Station first opened its doors in 2008 replacing Dish, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. The building, which can be seen on the hit T.V. show The Walking Dead, was formerly a gas station.

  1. Dish was a bold design statement and culinary creation that lasted over a decade in this previous gas station– during what could be called Virginia-Highland’s golden period of boutiques, cabaret/jazz, and popular restaurants that were famed in Atlanta.

    As part of the design team that created Dish and Harvest restaurants, let’s remember the successes of the neighborhood’s past and look positively to the increasing potential of the Virginia-Highland shopping and entertainment district.

    Embrace popularity.

  2. I’ve been a regular of Diesel for I think 10 years. Hoping something gets worked out that keeps this place what it is with the staff and the regulars. It’s been my second home for awhile and I’m going to miss the place if it becomes another boutique soap shop on this strip.

  3. $7,000 per month lease; debt service on $225,000; electric and gas bill; employees, food and liquor bill…..how much could it generate in a month to make a profit?
