Owner Pete Pappas said thankfully no one was injured.

The restaurant was closed the rest of the day Friday and only the pickup window remained open Saturday.

According to Pappas, a structural engineer will have to deem the building safe before customers can come in. An engineer isn’t available until Monday.
