Atlanta’s Fox Brothers BBQ Reopens After Storm Damage
" ATLANTA (WAOK/AJC) Fox Bros. BBQ in Candler Park reopened Sunday for limited business after being closed for a few days because of storm damage. A huge tree fell onto parts of the restaurant during Thursday night storms heavily damaging some dining space and vans that belong to the business.

Fox Bros. posted an announcement on its Facebook page Sunday morning with the news that it will begin offering full service again today but will have limited indoor seating at this point.

The restaurant opened for to-go orders only on Saturday.

The tree that fell was 70 inches in diameter and although it damaged the restaurant no one was hurt during the incident.

The restaurant used its Facebook page to update its customers on progress to reopen.

On the same night the restaurant was damaged,  eight people were slightly injured in Fayette County when lightning struck a table where they were seated. No one was seriously injured.
