For the last three years, Opelika’s Susie K’s Restaurant has been dishing out classic Southern dishes to its customers, and its owners say they plan to continue that for years to come.
Tim and Suzanne Lowery have owned and operated the business since August 2017, which is located in the former home of Sara Jay’s at 1801 2nd Ave. With Tim away on a deployment with the Alabama National Guard, Suzanne and her staff have had to adjust their hours of operation and some menu items to accommodate his absence.
When asked about the underlying factor or reason behind their success, Suzanne shared that it was largely because of the feedback and support of their faithful patrons as the restaurant enters its third year of existence.
“We are just blessed to have made it this far into this journey and are excited where year three will be taking us. During the past year, we have learned a lot about our customers this past year and have adapted to what they have asked for (and) am always open to customer requests for dishes they want to see,” Suzanne said. “We would (also) like to thank our faithful customers and our employees, because without them, year three would not be possible. I have really been shown the power and love of the community since Tim deployed with so many customers checking in on me to see if they could help me in any way or just checking to see how he is doing.”
In additions to the menu changes, Suzanne said there will be new takeout items available in the near future as well as more promotion of their catering, special orders and meal preparation business also offered at Suzie K’s. She added that they are looking to include family meals available for order on Sundays, but did not disclose any further details.
