ABC approves restaurant's private club request

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - When U.S. Pizza opens the doors of its new Jonesboro restaurant, it will be able to serve alcohol with its pies.

The restaurant, located at 2810 E. Highland in the old Fuji restaurant location, will also have to be re-inspected by the ABC Enforcement Division before receiving its permit.

Casteel also approved the following requests:
