From left front row: Presslie Burnett, Kiersin Frost and Saylor Buice enjoyed dining on cheese fries and soaking in the familiar Pool Room atmosphere Saturday morning. The trio was second in line with their order after Dawsonville resident Mandy Mull (not pictured) snagged recognition as the first customer to place an order after reopening. They have the best cheeseburgers anywhere, Mull said. She ordered three of them and a hot dog for her little girl. Back row from left: Gordon Pirkle, Jr. G.P., and Pool Room Manager Julie Tatum-Adams. Business has been good. Ive seen a lot of people I hadnt seen for quite a few years, he said. I asked Daddy to be here at lunchtime to see everybody. The famous Pool Room specials of chicken, hamburger steak, and mashed potatoes are now available. Pirkle noted that they are waiting a few weeks to start breakfast.
