Ron’s Restaurant In Plainfield Not Rebuilding Following Fire

Today the news was made official on Facebook from the family who owned and operated Ron’s Restaurant in Plainfield.

After great thought we are saddened to announce that we will not be rebuilding Ron’s. I’ve asked my parents to retire, the long hours on those cement floors have done a number on my mom’s joints over the past 33 years. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think about the restaurant and our customers since that has been our lives and the employees and customers alike are like extended family. I’ve tried to come up with a short sweet story here and it always ends up turning into a novel. So that being said we hope you all are staying healthy in these trying times and have a wonderful summer. 

Readers to this blog know my fondness for this restaurant as it dates back decades for my family.  I have written about that diner on my blog over time and was very pleased to have been able to write the lead story in the local newspaper about what that place meant for customers.

I can truly appreciate the desire of the family to step back from the business.  I can only say the fond memories of Ron’s, the staff, the folks who gathered and shared smiles and laughter remain. They will always be treasured.
