Sil's space to become The Drive-Thru
I stopped by Chubby's Cheesesteaks at lunch and co-owner Mazin Hamdan, confirmed that he will open The Drive-Thru in the former Sil's space, which is across the parking lot from Chubby's, as soon as renovations are finished.
"Hopefully before June, but by the first week of June for sure," says Hamdan.
The Drive-Thru will offer Alterra coffee, hotdogs and "the exact same" mini donuts, according to Hamdan. They will add sloppy Joe's to the menu and possibly one or two other new items.
Hamdan says they are completely remodeling the interior of the structure, and plan to add a landscaped patio with more lighting and five or six tables.
"We want to accommodate families," he says.
Stopped at what I thought was still Sil's last night... my doughnuts were COLD. Not the same at all! :(
community landmark!? it was there for 9 years. hardly long enough to be an integral business in the community. just because it was the first business to go into that location after it was built people expectit to be there forever? get over it! sil's is gone.! if you want them, take yourself down to 7mile fair. i'll just mosey on over to Oakland ave to get my donuts. you people are such babies, crying over spilled mini donuts.
Without Lars and his crew, I don't care if the food is dipped in gold, it just won't be the same. It's a shame that so many people who wanted to complete their top things to do in Milwaukee will no longer be able to add this to their list if they had not done so yet." Sorry," new business "I will not be a customer."
I won't ever go back. It now has as much appeal as it did when it was an empty Fotomat years ago.
And the self lifting reviews have started....So obvious, so funny, so pathetic.
