As of this week, he has closed the famous drive-through at the restaurant, which runs right through the center of the old 1928 firehouse building at 1100 E. Third St. where it operates.
“This old man is too old to have snow blowing up his keister,” Thien said.
The restaurant is closed this week while Thien makes changes to shut off the drive-through. He’s redoing the floors and making other repairs and plans to reopen next week for his regular hours, which are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Friday. The restaurant will have dine-in and carry-out options only.
