The something new is Main Street Auto & Tire, across from Planet Bluegrass. They recently opened for business, and specialize in tire sales and front-end alignment repairs, but can handle any and all types of auto repair. They are also the local U-Haul rental facility for the Lyons area.
The something borrowed (sort of) is Dave’s Dogs Gone Wild II. Dave Rodefer has been operating his hot dog cart here in Lyons since this spring. With the winter season fast approaching, he has made arrangements with the City Chicks, to “borrow” some of their space at City Chicks Café. Robin and Nancy will still be serving homemade breakfasts, made to order, Wednesday through Sunday 8 a.m. to noon, while Dave will use the kitchen to serve gourmet burgers and hot dogs, specialty brauts and sausages, homemade sides of slaw, potato salad, and baked beans, plus homemade soups (including a “lasagna soup” which I can’t even imagine, let alone describe; you’ll have to stop by and try it), Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.
Rodefer has a long family history in the food service business. His parents operated a restaurant when he was growing up, and he worked with his sister, Denise Braly, who owned and operated Scarpelli’s as well as creating the “Breggo” here in Lyons. There are also plans for special Friday and Saturday night dinner entrees to take home or enjoy on site. The menu is very reasonably priced, with most items in the $3 to $8 range.
