Ryan's on Atl. Highway closing

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - If you're in the mood for a juicy steak, you'll have one less place in the capital city to choose from.

The Ryan's Steakhouse restaurant at 6561 Atlanta Highway is shutting down in a planned closure from its parent company.

The Atl. Highway store, owned by Buffets Holding Inc., was slated for closure after Buffets filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January of 2008.

The nearest Ryan's restaurant to Montgomery is now located in Prattville on Cobbs Ford Road.

Buffets owns more than 500 restaurants stretching to nearly 40 states around the country.

The last round of closures took place Sunday evening and Monday.
