New brunch restaurant, BaKon Southern Eatery, opens in Chapin

BaKon Southern Eatery offers a new breakfast option for locals and visitors.

It's been busier every day, with double their foot traffic Thursday at 150 visitors. Staff shared that they're anticipating a very busy weekend. 

"It was just the best, some of the best we've ever had," Karen Gedroic, a new Chapin resident, said. "Not your typical run-of-the-mill menu and everyone here has been very gracious and very good at their jobs."
