The Fate Of This Beloved New Jersey Diner In Barnegat Light Is Uncertain
Change can be tough, especially when it comes to the food scene here at the Jersey Shore.
We have so many unique restaurants, classic diners, and fun little hole-in-the-wall places that we really identify with.
So when one of the owners of one of these beloved local spots announces they're putting the restaurant up for sale, it can be upsetting.
Especially if it's a place that's served the community for decades and decades.
The most nerve-wracking part is just not knowing what will happen to the restaurant after it's sold.
Will the new owners keep it open, or will they tear it down and build something new like they're doing with Bobbers in Seaside Heights?
If you've ever stayed at LBI, odds are you've had breakfast at Mustache Bill's at least once.
It's a staple in the New Jersey Diner scene and is considered one of the best around.
That's because the owner, Bill Smith, takes pride in making everything on the menu from scratch, not relying on anything pre-made.
That's what really makes a difference these days!
However, the future of Mustache Bill's is uncertain, according to NJ.com's Peter Genovese
It appears as though the long-standing beach diner is now up for sale.
NJ.com reports that the diner plans to open Memorial Day weekend for the season per usual, but could be sold at any point.
The reason for the sale?
The owners are retiring after running the diner themselves since the early '70s, and if you're interested, the diner is for sale for a cool 3.65 million dollars.
I hope whoever buys it realizes the importance of a place like this at the Jersey Shore and figures out a way to keep it standing, rather than building more houses.
