Rock­mart restau­rant closes doors

Knuck­le­heads shuts down ear­lier this month

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Sean Wil­liams [email protected]­

With the clos­ing of Knuck­le­heads, Rock­mart lo­cals won’t be ‘liv­ing the dream’ any longer.

The cafe known for its burg­ers, wings, and other Amer­i­can foods was ap­prox­i­mately four years old when its doors closed down for un­spec­i­fied rea­sons this month.

The restau­rant sported a mo­tor­cy­cle theme and its reg­u­lars of­ten pulled up on bikes them­selves.

While there are still plenty of restau­rants in down­town Rock­mart, Knuck­le­heads fans will be hard-pressed to find an al­ter­nate RW busi­ness to grab food at.

The Rock, also once owned by Andrew Heaner of Run­ning Wild Cater­ing, now sits as an empty venue not far from Knuck­le­heads. The store was pri­mar­ily pop­u­lar for its ice cream and soda be­fore shut­ting down in 2017 for un­spec­i­fied rea­sons.

How­ever, it’s not only Rock­mart that has seen clos­ings.

RW’s Snack Shack, an Aragon based restau­rant, was serv­ing coun­trystyle foods be­fore say­ing farewell in 2017. Un­like its con­tem­po­raries, Snack Shack had a short run­serv­ing cus­tomers for ap­prox­i­mately a sin­gle year.

Food may be out of the op­tion, but traces of RW can still be found in the city. Those in need of a quick, in­ex­pen­sive way to wash their clothes can visit RW’s Laun­dry at 804 W. Elm St., Rock­mart.

The busi­ness is open from 8 a.m. through 8 p.m. ev­ery day ex­cept for Satur­day, Sun­day, and Mon­day when it ex­tends hours to 9 p.m.

They also have Al­lS­tar­based busi­nesses in the area as well, in­clud­ing All­Star Mo­tors, All­Star En­ter­prises and more.

The restau­rants may be gone, but there’s al­ways the op­por­tu­nity for fresh starts.

Any­one in­ter­ested in the newly available prop­erty may con­sider vis­it­ing in per­son for leas­ing in­for­ma­tion.
