American Legion diner under new management

-A A +A
By Gina Schultz

There is a new sign outside the building of the American Legion Post 90 at 1325 Trinity Drive. The Fabulous ’50s Diner has become Cat’s Post 90 Café.
Owner and General Manager Charlie Bracken took over the business a few months ago after The Fabulous ’50s Diner’s then-owner Peter Olivas passed away in November.
The eatery re-opened under its new name Jan. 2.
The 1950s theme was more the Olivas’ style, Bracken said. “I wanted to change the décor to create something that represents me,” he said.
The philosophy is still the same as before, “Good affordable food year round.”
“If you want to bring family, have a good meal and not spend so much money, this is the right place,” Bracken said.
The menu is basically the same, although slightly revised.
The salad bar remains and there is still Blue Bell Ice Cream available. The food is cooked to order.
The restaurant still participates in functions hosted by the American Legion Post 90, such as benefit dinners and fundraisers.
