WILLIAMSON — The town of Williamson and its surrounding areas will have a new choice for good eating this summer when The Tracks End restaurant holds its grand opening on Second Avenue on July 15.
The restaurant is located in downtown Williamson where the new railroad hotel was built for the Norfolk and Southern railroaders at the old Moose Lodge location across from Tug Valley Pharmacy.
The restaurant is open to public from 6:00 a.m. till 10:00 p.m. but the 22 hotel rooms within the building are solely for the use of railroaders who travel in from Portsmouth, Ohio and Bluefield, West Virginia.
The restaurant that shares the building will have its own entrance under the Tracks End sign located on the Second Avenue side of the street.
Daily home-cooked specials will be served, such as dumplings, grilled chicken and meatloaf, along with home-cooked breakfast that is available from open till close. The menu has a variety of meals to choose from for dining in or carry-out.
Coneta Parsley, manager of the Tracks End and the motel, said, “I am so excited to get the restaurant open. It seems like we’ve had an empty building sitting here forever and now it’s finally happening.”
The building’s construction has been on-going for almost one year and railroaders and the public are also anxious for the grand opening.
The new railroad motel and restaurant is owned and operated by MSI Hospitality Solutions.
