Told today that Smokey Valley Restaurant in Olive Hill is going to close. Something to do with City of Olive Hill sewer requirements.
Sure hope something can be worked out. Don't want one of the best restaurants in the area to close.

Not sure where Olive Hill city limits are. The present owner had a buyer for the restaurant and when they went to transfer ownership, he was informed about the sewer problem and refused to purchase restaurant. The present owner told if she
kept restaurant open, she would have to upgrade sewer system. She cannot afford to upgrade so only
thing she can do is close. They will close before the end of 2012.

It makes me so sad to hear that Juanita is being forced to close down after so many years of running the truck stop. She was widely known by the truckers looking for a good home cooked meal in a pleasant atmosphere for a fair price. Her restaurant acheived even greater notoriety after being featured with Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, after spotlighting her wonderful homemade pies. Her cheerfulness and wonderful cooking will be greatly missed. I know it will be hard for her to walk away from something that has been so much a part of her life for so many years.
