This is the third revision of plans to renovate the current space on Masonic Ave. If they are accepted by County officials, then we'll be taking these plans to City officials, where more revisions and costs may be added to meet the latest codes.
In the meantime we are actively seeking a trustworthy contractor to turn these plans into reality and keep this "third place" going. We're still open while all of this happens, so come over to enjoy a meal at Jodie's.

Jodie's Restaurant is more than a diner. It's an essential mom-and-pop business that has literally fed a generation with love and care. Just ask Jodie, who can tell you any number of stories of children he has seen grow up right across his counter.
In addition to serving fresh, original food to one and all, Jodie has personally donated to local schools and charities. He has always been generous with his food, his time, and his earnings when the local community is concerned.
Jodie's has been unable to serve this chicken for nearly three years because it requires more storage and prep space than the restaurant can currently handle. While Jodie was able to serve his pan-fried chicken for two decades by preparing the birds at home, the local health department will not allow this to continue -- despite the fact that Jodie's has an "A" rating when it comes to sanitation.
The improvements made possible by your contribution will bring Jodie's fried chicken back into the lives of many happy diners.
