New restaurant moves into Uncle Buck's former location
By Paris Goodnight
Now that Uncle Buck’s has set up shop in a new location downtown, Salisbury Family Restaurant has filled in the old location on South Main Street.
Michael Pitman and Princess Bartlett have run Graham’s Grill for about three years, and now Pitman is operating Salisbury Family Restaurant at 929 S. Main St. while Bartlett maintains Graham’s.
Bartlett said Pitman has had surgery on his vocal cords and still sounds like he’s got laryngitis, so she does most of the talking for him. She said Salisbury Family Restaurant opened at the first of this month.
“He’s got a bigger menu than I do,” Bartlett said.
That will include steaks, seafood, lunch specials with a good selection of vegetables, and Pitman’s own tartar sauce and chili.
Bartlett said Pitman has about eight others working with him, including cooks, servers and dishwashers. The restaurant seats 86.
Bartlett, a native of New York state, and Pitman, originally from Florida, ran a restaurant in Kannapolis for about 3 1/2 years before going in on Graham’s Grill.
Hours for breakfast, lunch and dinner at Salisbury Family Restaurant are Monday-Friday 6 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
The phone number is 704-636-4300 if you’d like to call in an order to pick up.
