Home cooking restaurant ready to re-open

They call it some of the best home cooking in Fuquay-Varina.

The restaurant Jus Enuff has been serving up country breakfasts for 30 years, but the smell of biscuits and bacon has been missing since a bad fire last fall.

Three decades worth of memories built on family, friends, and great food went up in a smoke-filled fire last November.

"I lost everything," said Cindy Johnson, the proud proprietor of Jus Enuff. "Some of my friends called me and said that there was a fireman on top of the building and smoke was rolling, and my heart just dropped because this is my life."

It has taken longer than planned, seven long months, but the beloved piece of Main Street is finally set to re-open.

Customers are anxious to get back inside.

"The food, the food is like grandmas food!" said customer Debbie Mann.

They say it's the kind of place regulars may eat twice a day at, and if it was open for supper you might eat all three meals there.

"Our family, we come here every other Sunday morning for breakfast and we stay until 2 o'clock. We close it down, every other Sunday so we've missed them tremendously," Mann said.

Customers say it's not just the affordable food, or that it's so delicious. They say what keeps them coming back is the people who serve it. Johnson's customer service philosophy is  to treat customers like they are family.

"I tell everybody when they come in the door, the first time you come in the door, the first time you come in, you're a guest; the second time you're family."

Jus Enuff will open for business Memorial Day at 5 a.m. Just look for the flag outside.

As always, all military and first responders get a 5 percent discount.
