A grand opening will be held the fol­lowing morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Doors open at 6 a.m. and the regular business hours are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.

Veterans Day specials will be offered Saturday, Nov. 11. There will be free meals for active duty and veterans (with military ID).

“Barb’s Family Restaurant was cre­ated out of a love of the values handed down from my momma, Barbara Jean Bailey,” Bailey said. “Her love of serv­ing people is truly at the core of our de­cision to revive her dream. When Bar­bara

Jean started her very first restaurant in the 80s, it was with one clear goal in mind, to serve those around her with the best comfort she could in the form of warm meals, sweet treats and plenty of love. It is here at Barb’s Family Restau­rant that we will again serve our beauti­ful neighbors and patrons the love and comfort foods they need! We believe that love truly produces the best comfort foods and we aim to please.”

The restaurant’s phone number is (989) 302-8300.
