Who Misses Bill Knapp’s?
Well, I do for one.
Why is it that Bill Knapp's restaurants were considered to be for senior citizens, when every time I went in there it was loaded with mostly people in their 20's, 30's and 40's? Was it just because they had senior citizen specials?
If it was considered to be a eating hangout for geezers, then why were younger people filling the seats?
I'LL TELL YOU WHY...because the food was damn good, that's why (I dug the meat loaf)! And aside from that, it was more of a family restaurant instead of a feeding trough for the geriatrics. EVERYONE - from womb to tomb - seemed to love BIll Knapp's.
There were Bill Knapp's restaurants in Jackson, Lansing, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Battle Creek and Kalamazoo and outward through Indiana and Ohio.
.....and by 2002 they were closed.
What was their recipe for their famous au gratin potatoes? And why did the restaurants close if the establishments were so popular? To see their au gratin recipe and to read their sad closing story in an article on mlive, you can do so by CLICKING HERE.
Anyone out there wanna bring it back?
