American Roadhouse will close on Sunday

A Virginia-Highland institution is closing its doors, with a Mediterranean restaurant set to take its place.

American Roadhouse announced on its Facebook page that it will close Sunday, with Truva Turkish Kitchen slated to open in its place.

The restaurant opened in 1989 at 842 North Highland Ave. An AJC article described at as “a red-white and blue faux-diner concept offering "Breakfast, Burgers, Blue Plates."”

Muzo Saritas, who purchased American Roadhouse in 2016, also owns an original location of Truva, Cuts steakhouse and Metro Cafe Diner, all located in downtown Atlanta, in addition to a Metro Cafe Diner in Stone Mountain, Tommorow’s News Today reports. 

The conversion is anticipated to take place in the next couple of months. 

Saritas has also reportedly signed a lease for the space at 772 North Highland Ave. NE, previously occupied by J&J Bourbon Bar.

The AJC has reached out to Saritas for more information.
