S&S Cafeteria, the family-owned dining institution known for its southern cooking, is closing its last metro Atlanta location.

The S&S Cafeteria located at 2002 Campbellton Road in southwest Atlanta will shutter for good on Sept. 30.

A sign posted on the door announces the closure, which WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News reporter Sophia Choi shared on Twitter.

“It is with deepest regret that we announce the closing of our Campbellton Cafeteria at 6 p.m. on Sunday, September 30, 2018.

S&S Cafeteria has been a major part of the Atlanta community since 1968. We consider our customers family after all these years.

To all of our employees – we salute you with pride, a heartfelt thanks and appreciation for a job well done.

To our customers – thank you for 50 years and thank you for the friendships we have made.”

In 2016, S&S shuttered its location at Embry Village on Chamblee-Tucker Road. It had been open since 1973.  Numerous S&S employees at the Tucker location were hired a few months later when nearby Magnolia Room Cafeteria opened. The latter is owned by a longtime S&S customer known as Mr. Louis and is a bit of an homage to S&S.

Six other S&S locations remain in operation. These include one in Augusta, two in Macon and units in Greenville and Charleston, South Carolina and Knoxville, Tennessee.
