"As of October 15, 2013 Durbins of Plainfield is under new ownership/management. Stop by and see the difference. Still great food, drinks, friends & better than ever service," the post read.
An employee who answered the phone at Durbin's this week confirmed the ownership change. A manager at the restaurant did not return a message from Patch.
The Plainfield location, which opened in August 2012, was the seventh restaurant in the family-owned Durbin's chain. Based in Chicagoland, Durbin's originally opened in Burbank in 1987. Other locations include Tinley Park, Frankfort and Palos Hills.
Durbin's founder Tom McAuliffe said the location will remain part of the chain and is a licensed franchise.
"It's still the same good food and everything else," McAuliffe said Tuesday, adding the new owners are working to improve service at the Plainfield restaurant. "It's still a Durbin's. The only difference is the new ownership."
Prior to becoming home to Durbin's, the Lincoln Highway restaurant was the site of Pom Poms All-American Bar & Grill, which closed in 2010.
