"Five Guys," New Pizza Joint, Mexican Grill & Yogurt Shop Opening in Charleston

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- First Huntington and Morgantown, now "Five Guys Burgers and Fries" is opening two restaurants in Charleston.

According to a company spokesperson, Five Guys is set to open in the Dudley Farms Plaza along Route 119 and at the Charleston Town Center Mall. An exact location at Dudley Farms was not immediately available by the company.

Andy Boyd with THF Realty couldn't confirm Five Guys was coming to Dudley Farms, but Boyd tells WSAZ.com the company had looked at the former All Care Dental space.

Both restaurants are expected to open in late September, according to the spokesperson.

Tom Bird with the Charleston Town Center Mall could not comment on the restaurant's opening because the lease is still not final.

"Five Guys Burgers and Fries" is also opening another West Virginia location in Beckley, according to the corporate spokesperson.

No other information is being released.

Meanwhile, the owner of Creperi Cafe in Charleston is opening a new pizza restaurant called "Pizza By Barbarossa." It will be located in the current Shoe Carnival location.

Shoe Carnival is moving to the former Goody's location at Dudley Farms. Then, the shoe store's current location will be split up in to three different storefronts, according to Manoli Stavrulakis.

Stavrulakis tells WSAZ.com the new restaurant will offer a Greek/New York style pizza, different types of pastas and specialty breads. The menu will also include some vegetarian items.

"Pizza By Barbarossa" will offer dining and pick-up when it first opens, but the restaurant will eventually deliver.

The restaurant is set to open in late September.

Creperi Cafe has two locations in Kanawha City and at The Shops at Trace Fork in South Charleston.

Andy Boyd with THF Realty tells WSAZ.com Qdoba Mexican Grill will also open next to "Pizza By Barbarossa." According to the company's website, the restaurant offers a variety of burritos, tacos, salads and quesadillas.

Charleston Building Commissioner Tony Harmon also tells WSAZ.com "Yogurt Mountain" is coming to Books-A-Million at the Dudley Farms Plaza in Charleston.

Harmon says the current coffee shop is being converted into the yogurt shop. No word on when it will open to the public.

According to "Yogurt Mountain's" website, the store offers self-serve
frozen yogurt, featuring 16 rotating flavors of authentic frozen yogurt and more than 50 toppings.
