KETTERING — More than 20 months after a Grindstone Charley’s closed at 4139 Wilmington Pike, a new restaurant and sports bar is poised to open in that location.
All Stars Sports N Wings is “shooting to open by next Friday,” Sept. 11, according to its general manager, Todd Hicks of Beavercreek. It will offer a sit-down restaurant service with an extensive menu of chicken wings, burgers, wraps, ribs, salads, pizza, pastas, and beef and seafood entrees, as well as 25 televisions for sports viewing, Hicks said. OSU fans can congregate in a separate “Buckeye Room” for games, he said.
Hicks was drawn to the location in part because he was a former customer of Grindstone Charley’s, the restaurant that opened there in 1994 and closed in January 2008, a victim of increased competition.
“I had a good experience here, and I think it’s a great area,” Hicks said. “I thought, why not open a restaurant here?”
Hicks estimated the new restaurant and sports bar will employ 35 people. The business “was inundated” with applications after it posted a “now hiring smiling faces” sign in front of the restaurant earlier this week, he said.
All Stars Sports N Wings will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. seven days a week. For more information, call (937) 299-1100.Tweet
