Tornado-ravaged Restaurant Makes Tongue-in-cheek Name Change

A Henryville restaurant which has been closed for months is reopening -- with a new name commemorating the natural disaster which devastated the area.

A school bus went through the dining room at Budroe's restaurant, closing it for months.

They‘re serving chicken, roast beef and mashed potatoes again at a restaurant which became somewhat iconic after the tornado which struck Henryville in March. Many a photo was taken of Budroe’s after a school bus was blown into the dining room.

So when owner Sherman Sykes reopened his business Monday, it was under a new name.

“It was Budroe’s before and then when the tornado come, the bus come in the dining room, you know? So I just called it Budroe’s Bus Stop.”

It’s another symbol this week of life returning to normal in the Clark County town.  A newly-renovated Henryville High School opens its doors this week, too.
