Could Cracker Barrel work in its place?
The Southern Skillet closed in Roswell yesterday.
A manager at the country breakfast restaurant located at 1037 Alpharetta Street in the Roswell Plaza Shopping Center, confirmed their last day in business was Jan 3.
Slowed business and rising food prices were the reasons for their closure, according to that same employee. The Skillet’s second location in Chamblee at 5438 Peachtree Industrial also appears to have closed– their phone number is disconnected.
Both the Roswell and Chamblee locations are unreachable.
No indications of closing are available on their website. In fact, the most recent text is celebratory, for having made it to their “Silver Anniversary.”
“Tradition and hometown hospitality are the reason so many folks patronize The Southern Skillet. Since 1980, we have been serving the Roswell Community some of the best home cookin’ in this area.”
Bobby and June’s, located at 375 14th street NW in West Midtown, closed late last year after more than 30 years in business.
Maybe that’s the life expectancy for country breakfast restaurants in Atlanta.
