The restaurant was a great place to grab a sandwich, and popular spot for the teen crowd, who frequented the establishment to hang out with friends and have a bite to eat. It was similar to a scene from the hit 1970's sitcom Happy Days, or the award-winning feature film American Graffiti.

The building was owned for many years by Robert, an artist who used the storefront as a studio and had several canvases on display in the window. In 2021, the building was sold to private interests and Bob moved his studio into his Brookline home.
