WICHITA — A new restaurant is opening where Toc’s Coffeehouse closed this spring.
“We’re going to remodel it and open it as a Jimmie’s Diner,” says owner Jack Davidson.
Davidson and his wife, Linda, purchased Jimmie’s at 3111 N. Rock Road in 2007.
“We want to continue to … take this legendary store and spread it out to more than one location,” Jack Davidson says.
Jimmie’s “was one of the first things on North Rock Road back in 1987,” he says. “As a matter of fact, it sat out here all by itself on a two-lane road.”
The history of Jimmie’s, Kings-X Diner – the restaurant at 21st and Amidon the Davidsons also bought in 2007 – and Toc’s goes back even farther.
“We have a direct line back to White Castle in Wichita,” Davidson says.
