STONECREST—Arizona’s restaurant has re-opened after a nearly five-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The restaurant closed in March after Gov. Brian Kemp announced sheltering-in-place and other mandates due to the pandemic.

Roberto Woods, Arizona’s marketing/operations manager, said the restaurant had a “soft” re-opening on Tuesday, Aug. 11 after announcing its comeback on the restaurant’s FB page. Woods said patrons are excited about the re-opening.

“We opened on Tuesday for dinner. We wanted to do a test run to make sure that everything was in place. We’re following all of the COVID-19 protocols with requiring employees to wear masks and social distancing for our patrons,” said Woods. “It’s been great. We have received a lot of great comments and support.”

Woods said the restaurant is offering dine-in service, curbside pickup and delivery from a number of companies including Grubhub and DoorDash, Uber Eats and Postmates.

Woods said the restaurant’s hours have changed: Monday through Thursday, Arizona’s is open noon until 9 p.m.; Fridays, noon until 11 p.m.; Saturdays, noon until 10 p.m.; and Sundays, noon until 8 p.m.

      This article is a lie, and they should be ashamed. The Corona virus is not the reason why they went out of business. It’s because this business is literally disgusting and nasty, and full of incompetent people. They literally had to shut down because of back to back failing health scores of 19 followed by 37 just 1 week after the 19. The place needs to be permanently closed, and I was so glad when they went out of business. There is no excuse EVER, to have a 19 and 37 health score. This company is hiding those facts, and is not even going to address them, while pinning their failures on a virus. Hoping everyone forgets how disgusting they are. It’s a shame, because I know a lot of people who loved the food from there. Nobody wanted food from them after they failed those two health scores. They were one of the most successful restaurants over there, so I know that they could’ve easily converted to curbside and takeout only for the pandemic. But the damage was done, and nobody trusts them anymore. I swear they closed before the pandemic even hit.
