Report: A-Town Diner under new ownership, not closing for good
New owners seek to continue the restaurant’s legacy
– The popular 50s-style A-Town Diner in Atascadero is not closing for good as new owners step up to keep the restaurant up and running, according to a recent report by KSBY.
The restaurant has become a staple within the Atascadero community, and once new owners Robert and Mimi Davis heard the diner was closing, they stepped up in a big way to continue the restaurant’s legacy, according to the report.
According to Robert, the diner was a dream come true by the previous owner and Atascadero community member, Steve. The diner started out as a deli, where Steve worked to achieve his dream of owning a 50s diner, which ultimately turned into Virgil’s Burger. Virgil’s eventually turned into A-Town Diner, and after Steve passed away, his wife Jeanie took over the business.
After many years of managing the restaurant, Robert said Jeanie is ready to move onto another phase in her life, and step down from ownership.
