The iconic Janson’s Drive-In at 9900 S. Western Ave., will re-open on Monday under new ownership.

Local residents were heartbroken when the landmark Beverly restaurant announced it’s closing after 52 years in 2012.

Gus and Wendy Pettas, and developer Mike Ford bought the restaurant and have been renovating it ever since.

Patch called in the middle of a training session over the weekend, but we were told that Janson's will open its doors at 10:30 a.m. Monday.

For the time being, Janson’s will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., seven days a week.

Janson’s is already taking lunch orders by phone at 773-941-6283.

Welcome back! Here’s to another 50 years.
