Dick Turner, the man who owns the name and recipes to the classic Indy restaurants from the 1930s to 1970s, is hoping to open an updated version on the south side. Check out the story here. At its peak, the chain of diners had three locations, on Madison Avenue, Fall Creek Boulevard and in Nora. Could this concept work today?
  • This sounds like more fun than a new stadium for the Colts.
  • He could use Chief illiniwek as a mascot. I hear he's not doing much these days.

    Seriously, wouldn't the PC police potentially have problems with this? If not, I say go for it. I mean, if it wasn't for ice cream and being a member of the Clean Plate Club, I wouldn't have nearly the weight problem I have today!
  • I have so many memories of the TeePee - their hamburgers could not be beat - I'm am so all for this! I agree it would be a hit!!!
