A new restaurant will be opening at the end of June in Knoxville. The Altoona based Rib Shack Bar and Grill will open in the old Subway building next to the Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum. Bob Baker, Director of the Hall of Fame and Museum, which owns the property, says the contract was signed this morning and remodeling began shortly afterwards. The restaurant is owned by Joni Bell and Steve Allison. Allison tells KNIA KRLS news that the restaurant will be family oriented, and that catering will be available.
