The future site of Diablo’s.

Oconee County has issued building permits for two new restaurants in Epps Bridge Centre, one for Bone Island Grillhouse and the other for Diablo’s Southwest Grille.

Bone Island Grillhouse, an aspiring chain with one location on Lake Oconee, will be on the outlot between McDonald’s and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. Big Property Holdings LLC, 1720 Epps Bridge Parkway, purchased the 1.8-acre-lot from Epps Bridge Centre LLC early last year.

Diablo’s Southwest Grille, a fast-casual chain with three locations in Augusta and Aiken, SC, will be in Building 500 in the central core of the shopping center. It will be at the opposite end of that building from Groove Burgers, for which a permit was issued in December.

The permits bring to six the number the county has issued for stand-alone restaurants in Epps Bridge Centre, and a seventh restaurant is located within University 16 Cinemas.

The Diablo’s permit leaves only seven storefronts unleased in the shopping center itself, and the permit for Bone Island represents the fourth for the 12 out lots in the complex.
