Twin Peaks to open next week

WICHITA — Twin Peaks is opening — just a bit behind schedule — next week in the former Timberline Steakhouse & Grill space at 8310 E. 21st St.

"We had a heck of a time getting our timbers in," franchisee Rusty Rathbun says.

Rathbun is referring to the chain's signature big wooden columns because, in addition to Twin Peaks being as veiled a reference as Hooters, there really is a lodge look at the restaurant as well.

The restaurant will open for half days — 5 p.m. to midnight — starting Tuesday.

Then its regular schedule will begin May 23.

Hours will be 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Rathbun says he's going to gauge customer demand for a possible west-side Twin Peaks as well.
