If the “soft” opening of That Flippin’ Egg at 4466 Washington Rd. in Evans is any indication of the future, then business will be booming for a while.

Four weeks after Evans Diner closed its doors, deconstructed its iconic diner and relocated it to Waynesboro, the staff opened the doors to That Flippin’ Egg, with a similar menu and same smiles and love from restaurant cooks and servers. One somewhat new face is the owner, Robert Robertson. Robertson’s father owned Evans Diner.

On Sat., March 18 That Flippin’ Egg, which is located in the former Sho Chin’s Chinese Restaurant, was filled to the brim with old and new customers. The “regulars” were excited to see their favorite servers and catch up on life since the closing of Evans Diner.

New customers like Ned Williams from Martinez were also eager to check out the new digs. He and his wife chose to visit after she saw a Facebook post from a friend announcing the opening.

“We just never got a chance to go to [Evans Diner] and thought ‘well, we’re not doing anything, let’s go check out the new one,’” Williams said.

Customers will notice similar items to what was on the Evans Diner menu—hearty breakfast, sandwiches and of course eggs, any way you like them. The restaurant is open 6 .m. to 2 p.m. every day.

Robertson was unavailable prior to Buzz on Biz’s deadline to offer more details about plans for the restaurant.

He was too flippin’ busy.
