Delauder’s was recently named one of the top 100 places to eat in 2017 according to Yelp. The list was compiled based on customer’s votes.
Denny Delauder is the owner of the acclaimed restaurant and said he had thoughts of moving the business, but the loyalty of his customers made him stay.
“When business was bad at times. We thought about it, moving to a different location–closer to one of the busier strips,” said Delauder. “But we want to stick it out, out here because people love coming to a little known area especially to a little dive and eating.”
