Amelia Pond Stipe recently took the reins at Fast Eddies just recently and has plans to not only improve the menu, but the service as well. While you'll still be able to get those infamous greasy burgers, Amelia is bringing in a new cook among other changes.
"We have redecorated, made some improvements to aesthetics and decor, replaced equipment where needed, just a little overhaul and to add my own touch." Ms Stipe told the Times. "I have been doing themed days on specials, Like, Milkshake Mondays, Two for one Tuesdays, Waffles Wednesdays, Thirsty Thursdays, Free fries Friday, Sandwich Saturday, and lastly Sundae Sundays." she said, explaining more of the changes to the diner.
Ms Stipe hails from Norfolk, Virginia where her adoptive parents still reside. She worked at a Fast Eddie's Diner, owned by her father, while she lived there. Seeing the opportunity to expand her own horizons she jumped on the opportunity to manage another franchise location for him, here in The Point.
While in the course of writing this story I took the opportunity to sample the cuisine and although I'm no critic, I have to say there is a vast improvement. Not only in the food, but the service as well. The southern hospitality of Ms Stipe is genuine. Under her guidance the diner has a great future.
"I'd like the diner to be a home away from home, a family, as such, you know? A hive for the community to socialize, be fed, just be together. We're here, and more than ready for them and their appetites, their stories, their problems." She said of the establishment.
