Plainfield Business Briefs: Local Hot Dog Restaurants Close
What's happening on the local business scene.
Two Plainfield eateries recently bit the dust.
Just Judi’s, which opened in the former site of Lindy's Chili and Gertie's Ice Cream this May, has closed its doors for good.
The restaurant, owned by former Lindy’s/Gertie’s employee Judi Adams, occupied the space at 15932 S. Lincoln Highway for roughly six months. Just Judi’s specialized in burgers, hot dogs, Philly steaks and fries.
Although the windows were covered last week at the Lincoln Highway storefront, a sign was posted noting that a new Mexican restaurant, Mariachi Grill, is coming soon to the site.
Hot dog lovers in Plainfield still have some local options:
- Doggie Diner (Patch’s 2012 Readers’ Choice “best hot dog” winner)
- Smiley's Gyros & Beef
- Nabby's Restaurant & Catering
As far as new Plainfield eateries go, expect at least two in the new year. A Chipotle Mexican restaurant and a Which Wich sandwich shop are scheduled to open sometime in 2013 in the Kensington South shopping center at 127th Street and Route 59.
