A place to eat geared toward the family ... Tanya Fillingim, with the support of her two children, Samantha and Jesse, and her husband, Schon, opened Tanya’s Drive In on Saturday, January 27. Starting out quiet and small, she is working at big plans for the future, such as maybe a drive-in window. No alcohol nor tobacco, just good food and lots of smiles.
"It's a family drive in, a family restaurant where we cater to the family atmosphere," said owner and manager Tanya Fillingim, as she points at the high chairs in the corner and pats the shoulders of her own two children.
What used to be BJ's Corner has changed hands and reopened. The building has gotten new carpeting and linoleum, and has seen some cleaning and small repair work, but everything else is basically the same, according to Fillingim.
The interior of the building might look familiar, as does the owner.
