The Golden Corral restaurant in Alton is moving west.  Property is being cleared in front of Mungenast Alton Toyota on the Homer Adams Parkway that will be the new home to the popular eatery this spring.  The building that formerly housed the car dealership is being torn down this week.  The new restaurant is scheduled to open by April 1.

The new Golden Corral will be the same size as the current restaurant building, but will be configured differently on the inside, and the lot offers 40 more parking spaces for customers.  Mungenast will still own the property and will lease it to Kennedy Crause Inc, the owners of Golden Corrals in Alton, Collinsville, Carbondale and Osage Beach, Missouri.
