Lickin’ Chicken, a drive-through with fried chicken, fish and okra that is a small chain out of Covington, is open in the former Church’s on Oak Street. The Athens location doesn’t have a web presence yet, but the Covington menu is up on Facebook, should you want a preview.
The Five Points Waffle House (RIP) is now officially the second location of Fully Loaded Pizza Kitchen (the first being in Watkinsville). You can see its menu here.
Doughby’s Pizza and More is doing business in the former Chicken Express in Watkinsville.
And a sign has gone up on the former Sonny’s/Malinda’s, on Atlanta Highway, near the mall, promising a second location of The Carriage House, the original of which is in Jefferson. The Jefferson location runs a buffet (lunch and dinner) with Southern meats and veggies, and no doubt the Athens one will do something similar.
