We’re excited to announce that Steak-Out Athens is moving to a larger building adjacent to their current location this Spring! After 25 years in the current location, the store had steadily outgrown the space. The owner, Bob Matthews, considered several locations for the new space, but in the end knew that after 25 years, it was only the building that needed to change.
“I just thought, ‘We’re already here. Why move?'” he said. “There’s something to be said for staying where you are for 25 years.” Because he already owned the property, he decided to build a 1,940 square feet building on the same lot. The larger building will allow for a larger lobby and dine-in seating, the first Steak-Out in the area with this option for customers.
Bob isn’t sure of the exact opening date yet because of all the rain that they’ve experienced this Spring, but hope to open in the next month or so.
“With the weather being like it is, it’s hard to predict the opening day,” Matthews said. Steak-Out Athens is still operating as usual during the construction of the new location. They are taking orders by phone at 256-233-2299, online at steakout.com or in person at 1106 Jefferson Street.
