This establishment was built as a barbecue lodge in 1952 in
Highland Village, Fayetteville's first shopping center. In 1958, with
the addition of the open hearth and beautiful copper hood, it became
a steak house. By 1960 it again changed hands and became an
Italian restaurant. December 13, 1963, Chris Poulos purchased the
business and returned it to its "good old American" Steak House status,
with one goal in mind, "to give you your money's worth ...without
cutting corners or quality." In 1982, after 2 years apprenticeship,
Greg Kalevas became a business partner. In 1987 Luke Poulos, who
grew up in the Steak House, became a third business partner. You,
Our Valued Customers, have been our best advertisement. Many
thanks as we enter our second generation!
