Does anyone remember not so long ago when the eggners ferry bridge was reopening and the owner was interviewed, saying how the .bridge being closed has hurt her financially and she didn't know if she would be able to keep the restaurant open...I'm no detective, but this has red flags everywhere!!!!!

That is the first thing I thought of this morning when I saw it on the news. Hope it's not true.

I was gonna mention possible insurance fraud but was worried I'd get jumped on. LOL glad y'all agree!

I don't think it was an insurance scam. Don't you think they'd be smarter than trying to burn it at dinner hour across the street from the fire department? Just a little hard luck! Anyway, there isn't any damage to the main restaurant, not even much to the pit from what I could see. The majority of the damage is to the middle room where they only had an oven, the dishwasher, and a few prep tables. I'm sure if they were trying to burn it for money, they could have done a better job...maybe wait till the middle of the night? Or at least done a good job and burnt it to the ground.

Have you been there since they remodeled? I agree it used to be kinda gross...but since then, I've been pretty happy. It would probably be a little nicer if they didn't hire Aurora's finest welfare recipients as help, but they seem nice enough. Maybe if the employee's had to wear uniforms, it would look nicer. But, I'm pretty sure they just come to work in whatever they've slept in the night before!

I think Spring, but I heard they may be taking Christmas and Thanksgiving orders (and any other orders made in advance). I know they have a facebook page. Ask someone there.

All I can say is wow..Yall people need to get a life and quit making assumptions. This was no insurance job..It burnt 25% of the resturant. It was caused from a recalled exuast fan in the ceiling.
