“After two months of intense renovation due to a fire, we are excited to be able to invite all of our friends and customers to come in and enjoy our delicious Southern meals,” Rita Kiser writes.
Kiser is urging patrons to “dine in and relax in our renovated facilities, complete with Christmas decorations.” (Although she adds that the take-out shop is reopening too.)
The area’s last surviving cafeteria, S&S Cafeteria on Oct. 2 was badly damaged by an early morning laundry room fire. General manager Mike DeLaney initially forecast the restaurant would require a few weeks to rebuild, but it took months before loyal customers were given another crack at deviled eggs; broiled chicken livers; ambrosia and turnip greens.
The S&S at 1104 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. is one of eight locations operated by the 77-year old chain. The West Ashley restaurant opened in 1978.
“We look forward to serving…for many more generations,” Kiser writes.
