Popular restaurant set to reopen

Cook County - A popular South Georgia restaurant that burned down two years ago is re-opening.

The Catfish House of Adel caught on fire in January of 2003. The owners, 50-year-old Peggy Parr and 20-year-old Jennifer Barnes, were both charged with arson.

Now the former owner is rebuilding the restaurant next door to where the old building stood. "Fuller's Catfish House" will seat about 350 people and will have the same menu selections that the old restaurant, plus many more new recipes.

"We probably have 40 to 50 people on average daily coming by and looking at the restaurant that are excited about it opening. We have notes left here, we have phone calls at home on a daily basis from people really excited that its coming back to Cook County and the surrounding areas," said Tim Fuller, Owner.

Fuller hopes to open the restaurant the first or second weekend in May.
