Scotty Stroop owns this joint and has a long history of running successful places. Years ago he told me and my Dad that he had to get 5 bucks out of everyone that comes in the door. Mind you that was in the 80’s at the Chuckwagon in Georgetown, but the point was to know your volume and costs and you can always make money.
There are numerous things on the menu that cost $8.09 and comes with two sides, so I guess with inflation you have to make $8.09.
I asked why my beef stroganoff was $8.95 with one side and only got shrugs.
Still the place ain’t bad, if you stick with what you could eat at Mel’s Diner.
