As a percentage of revenues, restaurant-level profit increased to 19.7% from 18.9% in the prior year, driven primarily by improved commodity costs and leverage from increased revenues on occupancy expenses and operating expenses partially offset by increased labor expenses.

General and administrative expenses increased $2.2 million to $7.4 million compared to $5.2 million in third quarter of 2011.
