Greyhound Restaurant

 A new restaurant is coming to Covington called, appropriately, "The Greyhound." It will be located in the same building as the old Greyhound bus depot on Boston Street, formerly the Oak Tree Service Station. It is set to open soon. The bus station was located in the corner of the building along Florida Street.

The owners of the Del Porto Ristorante at the corner of New Hampshire and Boston will open the establishment.  According to a recent news article, the place will offer a more casual setting for young people.

There will be a wood-burning oven for pizza as well as other popular menu items, including burgers and fried chicken. The bar will offer a variety of beers.

Here are some photos of the location currently undergoing renovations. Click on the images to make them larger.
