Yia Yia's Pizza opens second location

LINCOLN, Neb. Much to the delight of of pizza and craft beer lovers, Yia Yia's Pizza and Beer now has a second location. The restaurant's new spot is located at 70th and Van Dorn.

Yia Yia's has been open in Lincoln for 18 years but has been confined to a downtown crowd.

The new location will be exactly like the original restaurant. It will serve the same kind of food and drinks everyone has come to know and expect downtown just more easily accessible for those on the east side of town.

Owner Nader Sepahpur said he's excited to meet the demand and build a community in east Lincoln.

"It's been a work in progress for way too long. I don't think anyone has taken this long building a restaurant... but it's a labor of love... And hopefully we've gathered a community around this building as we have downtown."

The restaurant opened for business at 11 Tuesday morning.
