Salisbury’s northern landscape is changing again.

This time work crews are now pushing ahead with the construction of a Chipotle Mexican Grill and a Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurant on the site of the old Zia’s Italian Grill.

The two restaurants will spread out over 54-hundred square feet near Gander Mountain.

The two restaurants will join other major chains along North Salisbury Boulevard such as the Rod Lobster, the Olive Garden as well as Starbucks and Arby’s.

Plans for a Cracker Barrel got past another hurdle.

The Wicomico County Planning and Zoning Commission said yes to the restaurant that would be located in the Centre at Salisbury.

In addition, Five Guys and Chipotle restaurants also got approval to move into the old Gander Mountain site in northern Salisbury.

Rumors have been flying for weeks that the Cracker Barrel would be coming to the Crossroads of Delmarva.

Earlier this month Salisbury Director of Planning and Zoning Jack Lenox confirmed that the restaurants were developing plans for Route 13 locations.

There were more disturbances at the Centre at Salisbury mall over the weekend.

Two females began fighting around 8 p.m. on Saturday that drew some spectators.

It was quickly dealt with by the Salisbury Police Department and the mall security.

No injuries or arrests were reported.

There was a second incident about an hour and a half later that involved a bus from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Too many people tried to ride the bus back to campus and caused some to become upset.
