Nothing puts the “kick” in kick-off like a plate of Buffalo Wings. But not all wings are created equal! Here's how to tell the difference...


After 10 months in business, a local eatery has closed its doors. 

Five19 Restaurant and Bar, located at 8460 Birchwood Court in Johnston, had taken over the space formerly occupied by Legends American Grill.

"We are so sad to say that today at 2pm we will be closing our doors for the last time!!" said a sign on the door on July 2. "Thank you for all your business and support! Have a great day! Thank You Again Five 19."

Five19 was open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, serving American food and comfort classics like hand-battered onion rings and spicy tots, traditional and boneless wings, salads, burgers, sandwiches — including hand-breaded pork tenderloin, entrees and desserts.

The restaurant also featured live music by local bands.

Five19 was owned by Amy and Doug Lull of Cumming. The couple named the new restaurant after their wedding date, which was May 19, 2017.
