Chevy Café owner and manager Scott Jackson said the restaurant marked 20 years in operation Nov. 15 and celebrated with items such as 99-cent hamburgers, all you can eat catfish for $8.99, and rib eye steak dinners for $6.99.
Jackson said the Blast to the Past was a two-day event and featured a car show by the Jones County Cruisers, bounce houses from Mr. Moonwalk, and a display of Jones County Fire and Rescue vehicles.
Music was provided by the gospel group Heaven Bound.
“I wanted to remind people that Chevy’s Café is the county’s oldest restaurant, and we are still here because we serve great food and give our customers great service,” Jackson said.
He noted that Lin and Tom Turner opened Chevy’s in 1994, but before that it operated as the Forty-niner Diner and Terry’s Diner.
