A recently vacated North Knoxville restaurant space won't stay empty for long.

Vic and Bill's closed its doors on Broadway in North Knoxville earlier this month. Since then, two of the restaurant's long-time employees partnered together to start their own business.

Jalapeno's will open this Saturday. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.

The menu features traditional American breakfast items with some Mexican dishes.

"We hope that people like our food," said Abel Madrigal, co-founder of Jalapeno's. "That's what we hope because he's a good cook and he does breakfast, great breakfast so that actually is going to be our main thing."

The owners are looking to hire several cooks and servers.
