H&R Cattle Company
The cafe served up homemade salads and huge chicken fried steaks at the Perkins Livestock Sale barn on State Highway 33 for several years but it recently relocated to Wellston. The manager said business had been slow for a while and the owners found a prime Main Street location in a town where they would have the only restaurant.
Kim’s Vietnamese Cuisine
Kim’s food truck was founded in 2013 and quickly developed a loyal following. A few years ago, it relocated from Duck Street to the former Subway on Knoblock, which gave the owners more space for food prep and gave diners a place to sit while they ate. In March, the owners announced they would be closing through the summer. They have said their plan is to find a brick and mortar location and reopen in the fall.
An upscale but relaxed cajun restaurant (“not white table cloth but cloth napkins” according to the owners) is moving into the building at 622 S. Main that formerly housed Main Street Noodle. Although work continues on the building, the restaurant seems to be one step closer to opening with the mounting of its sign on the building.
