Restaurant openings & closings - Sept 7th 2013

Here's a look at the latest restaurant openings / closings in the Spokane / Coeur d' Alene area...

Included in this post: Lucky Lab Coffee Co. , S & A Deli , Geno's , Port of Subs , Qdoba  and Wild Dawgz

Lucky Lab Coffee Co.

With food trucks now open and rolling all around Spokane the next logical step in a city that loves coffee would be to open a coffee truck. So it's fitting that by the end of the year , Spokane's first coffee truck will be on the streets.

Lucky Lab Coffee doesn't have a opening date announced yet but work is underway to get it open most likely in late fall. Watch this site and our Facebook page for more.


S & A Deli

Watch for the opening soon of S & A Deli , opening at 3005 E. Mission nearby Spokane Community College. S & A will also feature some Thai / Asian favorites.


" It's like The Elk but with fries " is the saying being advertised for the re-opening of Geno's , a restaurant at 1414 N. Hamilton nearby Gonzaga. Geno's had been a favorite restaurant of many and was sold earlier this year, after a fire damaged part of the building and the neighboring apartment complex. The fire forced a temporary closure but crew's have been hard it work and the restaurant is scheduled to open sometime this month.

Under the new ownership the establishment will take on a new dining room look and a new menu. The new Geno's is expected to look more like a college sports bar.

Port of Subs

The Port of Subs chain of sandwich shops is arriving soon in the Inland Northwest.  Port of Subs is a Reno,NV based chain of sub sandwich restaurants that is rapidly growing around the West.

The new Spokane Port of Subs will be located in Downtown Spokane at 525 W. Sprague Ave. nearby the Ridpath site. The new shop is scheduled to open on Sept. 12th.


The Mexican fast casual restuant chain Qdoba is adding a new location in Hayden. The new Hayden Qdoba is scheduled to open Sept. 23rd in the Prairie Shopping Center complex by the corner of US 95 and Prairie Ave.

The new Qdoba will take some of space that was vacated by the closure of Blockbuster Video earlier this year. The new restaurant will be around 2,500 square feet with seating for 56 inside and 16 on the patio.


Wild Dawgs

Known locally for a bit of press last year over the businesses risque logo Wild Dawgs has re-opened in Downtown Spokane. Wild Dawgs closed last December after only being open for a few months but as of late August the business has returned.

Wild Dawgs is still in the same Downtown location at 102 N. Howard St. and much of the menu has remained the same as when the business first opened. Although this time a liquor licence has been filed and beer and wine will be added to the menu in the near future.
