Before Highway 515 offered a four lane path to the mountains, the primary route to and from Atlanta was via US 19/129, going over the mountain, through Cleveland, through Gainesville, and on to Atlanta.

No one could miss the popular Gateway Restaurant, situated at the intersection of 19/129 and Ga 75 in Cleveland. It was located in the perfect spot for those headed to Helen or Blairsville and Dahlonega. Ma Gooch served patrons Southern cooked foods at her restaurant there for nearly 30 years.

She sold the business finally in 1994 on the advice of doctors. Before the Gateway Restaurant, she operated the Sunrise Grill in Blairsville and the Mt. Yonah Cafe in Cleveland.
