Ryan’s Steakhouse Buffet closes

Ryan’s Family Steakhouse, 5338 Bardstown Rd., has closed, a casualty of the bankruptcy filing of Buffets LLC, which operates Ryan’s Buffet, HomeTown Buffet, Country Buffet, Fire Mountain Buffet and Old Country Buffet. The company is closing 90 restaurants nationwide, restructuring the business under Chapter 11 by closing weaker restaurants.

The family-style restaurant had been popular with a segment of the public that likes familiar food served easily in quantities they can manage for themselves.

The restaurants closed for good last week, and the remaining assets were auctioned off on line.
