Some bad news today. The iconic and legendary Cub Restaurant near Youree and Kings has closed. If only the walls in that place could talk. Owner Roger Wilbanks posted the bad news on the restaurant's Facebook page.


The restaurant has been open for 30 years, but The Cub Lounge has been in business since 1939. It looks like the lounge will remain open, but we are working to confirm that.

Many locals will tell you they love many of the offerings at the Cub including the steaks and the Au gratin potatoes. I was always a fan of that big burrito they served. It was so much food at a great price.

KEEL News has learned The Cub Lounge has had separate owners for a while and will remain open, but the restaurant has already closed. There has been some discussion about new owners reopening the restaurant, but we'll have to wait and see.
