RJ's Coney Island

 

continued

Six months ago he bought Mr. Greek's on State Street. He's cleaned, painted, redecorated, and a few months ago he got the new signage up. It is now officially RJ's Coney Island. Like most coneys, the establishment itself is fiercely under the control of a single family, while the menu seems to mainly come from some central coney repository. Rzeppa and wife, Anne Marie, a nurse who works in Detroit, are the family. Rzeppa says he's made some changes to the menu: "There's a full dessert menu, and I added a signature Bacon8er burger, named after my son Nate" (whose name you can hear, if you can't see). Nate is a partner as well, though he lives in Chicago. He's also added outside seating.

Rzeppa didn't name the restaurant after himself--it honors his father R.J., a Ford worker who died when Rzeppa was eleven years old.

RJ's Coney Island, 215 S. State, 662-6336. Daily 8 a.m.-8 p.m. rjsconeyrestaurant.com.     (end of article)
