A new buffet will open in Rock Island

Owner fulfills lifelong dream

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - A new all-you-can-eat buffet will soon open in Rock Island. 

Spago's will be located on 27th Street and 18th Avenue in Rock Island.

Owner David Walz says opening a restaurant has been a dream of his. 

After being unemployed when Ryan's in Moline closed, Walz decided it was time to open his own restaurant. 

Spago's will be a fresh American food buffet. 

There will be a salad bar, a variety of hot American food and a pizza bar. 

Walz says besides Golden Corral, there aren't many American food buffets in the area. 

He says he's getting a good response from people. 

"I'm really excited. We've had a lot of people come by, stop in and we always invite them in. Come on in, look around and people are very receptive to what we want to do here. I think we're going to do really well."

Walz says he hopes to open the restaurant by the end of the summer.

He plans to employ anywhere from 20 to 30 people
