Lone Spur Café expansion

Immediately following Mother's Day this year, the Lone Spur Café closed for 7 days to undergo a heavy remodeling and expansion. The western-themed restaurant, serving classic American dishes, is regularly packed with customers, especially on weekends.

"We were pretty much on a 30-minute wait time on Saturdays and Sundays," said Travis Brown, the restaurant's manager.

To alleviate the long lines, they decided to acquire the vacant business space right next to them, cut a hole in the wall to fit a door, and turn the space into a third dining room-adding 65 seats to their capacity.

"Our wait times are now no longer than 10 minutes on average," Brown said.

The restaurant is located adjacent to the courthouse at 106 W Gurley St. and can be reached at 928-445-8202.

U-Like Sushi Buffet opening this week

U-Like Sushi Buffet is set to open this coming Thursday. The owner, Eric Liu, has remodeled the old China Buffet building overlooking Costco on Walker Road.

"This is a brand-new style of buffet," Liu said. "We want to give higher quality of food and style."

The all-you-can-eat restaurant will be primarily serving sushi, hibachi grill and teriyaki grill. It will be $7.99 for a lunch buffet and $10.99 for dinner.

Liu's family owns several buffets throughout Arizona, but this will be the first of those Liu owns himself. He previously owned a buffet in Colorado.

The restaurant will be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the week.

Dr. A's Kitchen returns

Dr. A's Kitchen, next to Trader Joe's at Highway 69 and Lee Boulevard, originally opened in June 2014.

The kitchen, which offers authentic Persian dishes, stayed opened for about eight months before suddenly shutting down. Back in business, the restaurant's hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except for Sunday and its phone number is 928-350-8294.
