Agreement on taxes reached, Thelma’s restaurant in Salisbury has reopened

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - After being closed for a week due to a tax dispute, Thelma’s Down Home Cooking in the West End Plaza in Salisbury has now reopened.

The NC Department of Revenue closed the restaurant on February 1 due to non-payment of taxes. Owner Thelma Luckey says that issue has been resolved.

The restaurant was opened for a private party on Saturday and then opened to the public on Sunday.

“Thanks for the tremendous support today,” Luckey wrote in a Facebook post. “We had a great day.”

The weekly coffee for veterans that has been held at Thelma’s for the past five years moved to K & W Cafeteria when Thelma’s closed. She’s hoping to bring the veterans group back to her restaurant.

Thelma’s is now back open on its normal schedule of Sunday from 11 pm to 7 pm and weekdays from 11 am to 9 pm.
