Manners at SR 57 & SR 254 Opens – July 1967
It’s still hard to believe that after building up such a huge presence in Lorain County, the Manners chain still disappeared before the end of the 1970s.
I remember eating at this particular restaurant in the 1980s (after a late gig, just like the type mentioned in the old Burger King commercials). It was no longer a Big Boy; it might have been part of Richard Head’s brief chain of Tudy’s restaurants at the time.
Anyway, that was when I learned that I could drink a lot of coffee at three in the morning and still manage to go home and fall asleep right away.
Today, the building is long gone and the property is now the North Ridge Park complex.
