Issues with its septic and sewer system kept the buffet chain from opening a new location at North DeKalb Mall last month.
After a period of delay, Golden Corral will open at North DeKalb Mall later this month, the buffet chain said Friday. The restaurant plans to have its certificate of occupancy from DeKalb County on March 22, and it will open March 25.

"We've had one issue after another, but we've finally got it resolved," he said.

A potential Golden Corral restaurant at North DeKalb Mall ran into some problems with the Zoning Board of Appeals on Wednesday.
Plans to build a Golden Corral restaurant at North DeKalb Mall encountered a slight delay from the DeKalb County Zoning Board of Appeals on Wednesday.
