Noticed this morning taking Hubby to work...Preston Hwy at Blue Lick Rd,the old Moby Dick building signs up for Lonnies. I am very excited to have something different out our way. Love me some Chicago Dogs!

I saw that they were open, so I decided to have lunch there today. I'm happy to say they are spot on!

I had an Italian beef sandwich, dripping with au jus, and topped with giardiniera. It was messy, and hot, and just the way it should be!

The pics I saw on FB make the place look huge! How much bigger is it than the original Lonnies? I love Lonnies, but hate trying to find a comfortable place to sit in the East End one.

Sorry I haven't been to the East end location but can tell you the new spot has probably 8-10 booths with at least 6-8, 4 top tables and a couple of high top bar type tables that seat 6-8 then there are window seats on the side...plenty of space.

It is considerably larger than the St Matthews location. As BevP mentioned, they are in a former Moby Dick building. Think any standard fast food joint.

Looks like they might use the drive-thru. (the menu was up, but there was a sign over the speaker)

Wow. That's awesome for them! Maybe eventually they can move to someplace on the East End that has more room. (like oh, say...in Westport Plaza or Springhurst for example...*hint, hint*)
