PEABODY — Bill & Bob’s Roast Beef was back in business less than a day after a woman drove her SUV into the venerable restaurant’s facade.
A motor vehicle drove into Bill & Bob’s Roast Beef at 6:57 p.m. Tuesday, according to Peabody Police. Nobody was injured in the ordeal.
“The older lady came in to get food when she left she reversed her car,” said Bill & Bob’s owner Angelo Lagonakis. “Instead of putting the car in drive she reversed into the building.”
Fire, health and building department officials were in the 2 Central Street location Wednesday morning to assess the damage, take apart equipment and to assess food that may be contaminated.
Lagonakis said he received clearance from the Peabody board of health to operate by early Wednesday afternoon.
“I’m glad no one got hurt,” said Lagonakis.
