Blue Bell Diner - history repeating itself

We went to Andy's Diner on Saturday for lunch and sat with our favorite waitress from Blue Bell Diner. She gave us the scoop on what's been going on at BBD lately - apparently the folks who own it and Andy's sold BBD to someone else when they opened Andy's. I believe they did this because they wanted to expand in Blue Bell and didn't get approval. Anyway, the purchaser made a few minor changes, didn't pay anyone for a few weeks then took off! This is a repeat of what happened with the diner about 4 years ago - the owner took off to parts unknown (at least by me)!

Now the Andy's folks are back in charge but looking for a new buyer.

  1. Dang. What about the T and T diner or something, right on 202 a couple of miles down the road? Is that owned by the same people?

      It's truly a shame, a good diner there would make a killing at that location.

        TT is owned by someone else, to the best of my knowledge. BBD is still open, as far as I know.

        I really hope they find a buyer who is committed to making a diner work there!
