Residents in the apartment complex next door knew something was wrong when first responders were ‘banging’ on their doors to evacuate the complex.

The restaurant has been in the area for quite some time - even getting a revamp in 2007. Now the question is - will the owners rebuild? This isn’t the first time the building has caught fire.

No injuries were reported from the fire.

Buckhead Grill was located at 5010 Armour Road.
