GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – A beloved Grand Rapids diner is being put up for sale.
After 26 years of serving food and being a staple in the community, Choo Choo Grill owner Richard Mack says he is ready to retire.
The restaurant is in a building just north of downtown Grand Rapids and was built in 1922 and served as an office building for a local coal company before being transformed into a diner in 1946.
Mack bought the grill from his father-in-law in 1997 and says the place has a certain charm that makes him look forward to going to work every day. The diner and an adjoining tattoo parlor that Mack also owns are listed for sale for $1.5 million.
