American Roadhouse to Open Second Location in Downtown Atlanta

February 3,2012

American Roadhouse, the 23 year old Virginia-Highland breakfast institution, is opening a second location in the burgeoning Pencil Factory Flats & Shops. In early Spring 2012, American Roadhouse will open the doors to its award winning breakfast and lunch serving multiple in-town neighborhoods at the intersection of Decatur and Hill Streets. 

“The 30,000 commuters a day on Decatur Street, and countless additional MARTA riders (at MLK stop), heading into Downtown deserve a quality breakfast spot. Atlantans accustomed to great food, huge portions and great value will now have a fantastic option for casual and professional breakfast and lunch meetings; all with hassle free drive in/drive out parking at no charge. American Roadhouse is poised to become the center of the Pencil Factory community,” says Aaron Goldman, President of Perennial Properties, the Pencil Factory's developer. “This is an ideal addition to a perfect tenant mix at the Pencil Factory.”

Pencil Factory Flats & Shops, located at the historic intersection of Hill Street and Decatur Street, is fast becoming one of Downtown Atlanta’s premier mixed use communities. American Roadhouse is joining an array of businesses in the thriving Pencil Factory Lofts. Neighbors include Caramba Cafe, Melange Salon, Intown Market, Village Theatre, Hill Street Tavern and the nearby Memorial Drive establishments; Six Feet Under, Tin Lizzy’s, The Republic and more.

“When we opened in Virginia-Highlands in 1989 it was an ‘up and comer’. We saw the young energy and creative people and knew it was a spot to call home. Today, we feel that same energy at our new home on Decatur Street. It provides the perfect mix of communities (Inman Park, Candler Park, Edgewood, Downtown), offering a very cool edgy vibe. We are thrilled to open in this unique cross-section of Atlanta,” states Ed Udoff, the founder and proprietor of American Roadhouse

The second location of American Roadhouse will be located at 349 Decatur Street, Atlanta, GA 30312 and will provide catering.
