“When people go out to eat, what do you want? You want great food, great service and you want to smile and have a good time and that’s what we’re about,” Poole said.

It is expected to open sometime in the next month.

“We’re very very excited to be in the community, part of our philosophy is giving back and helping out where we can and we’re really looking forward to being involved in the community,” said Poole.

Additionally, Childers Eatery is set to open Tuesday. It is the third location within the River City, with current locations at Junction City and on University Street.
