Junior's Grill to close Thursday

A Georgia Tech landmark for more than 60 years will close its door Thursday.

Business at Junior's Grill, currently located in the Bradley Building on campus, has declined in recent years, prompting the close, the student newspaper the Technique reported.

“We’ve been serving Tech students for many, many years, and we’ve made a lot of memories," Tommy Klemis, the owner of Junior’s Grill, told the newspaper. "It’s been a blessing to all of us. I wish we could go on, but I think I’m going to enjoy watching the campus going forward."

Junior's Grill first opened in 1948 at the corner of Techwood Drive and North Avenue and was known as Pilgrim's. The restaurant moved several times before moving in to the current location.

The restaurant, famous for its burgers and chicken tenders, will close for the last time at 2:30 p.m.
