JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Nearly two years after it closed, a classic Jonesboro restaurant is reopening.

Ron’s Catfish owner Ron Shelton told Region 8 News that they will be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.

They will open their doors on May 23.

The restaurant, located at 3213 Dan Ave., had been in operation for nearly 30 years when Shelton sold it.

The new owners changed the name to Jason’s Catfish Buffet.

Last month they announced on social media that they would close the restaurant, citing costs that were “higher than we could maintain.”
