I’ve been surprised by how many readers have asked me lately about Dyne Quik, the little Valentine diner at 1202 N. Broadway.
New owner Richard Jack reopened the spot, officially renaming it to Lil’ Joe’s Dyne Quik (after his 7-year-old son), about a week and a half ago. He’s now open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
His menu includes daily blue plate specials such as pork chops (today’s special), a hot roast beef sandwich (tomorrow’s special) and staples such as burgers, chicken fried steak, sandwiches, salads and more. He also serves traditional breakfast items daily.
Jack, who used to operate a little restaurant near Manhattan a decade ago, says he’s readjusting to life behind the grill. Dyne Quik closed in 2008, and Jack and his crews have spent the past several months removing “50 years of grease,” he said.
Former fans of Dyne Quik have been stopping in to check out the new menu, and all of them compliment Jack on how nice the place looks.
“A lot of people come in that had come here before and say they didn’t know that the walls were actually white,” he said.
