DH and I were trying to figure out what happened to this restaurant over the past few weeks. This was the start of it… one night we took a chance and drove to Mohegan Lake even though they didn’t answer their phone (DH thought it was uncharacteristic of them). When we arrived the door was locked and the lights were off and thought it odd that they had maybe closed early for the day? I tried to call a couple of times after that night but still met with no answer =(. Eventually their phone was disconnected within two weeks time. Arnold’s had suddenly closed without any notice. I did web searches to try to find any posts related to this. Tonight was a sad night since DH had accidentally found our beloved burger place being advertised on eBay–> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190292548496&ssPageName=ADME:B:EF:US:1123. I’m posting this blog for anyone who was also wondering what had happened? Apparently the owner is selling the store due to health issues. It’s always sad when a fave store closes. I’m really devastated. DH and I have been eating there on weekends for the past two years, possibly longer. I almost always ordered my calamari salad with balsamic vinigrette, chili, and root beer float with soft vanilla ice cream. The food was always so fresh. We even brought friends and family there since we loved Arnold’s so much. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the new owners will maintain Arnold’s the way it always has been, with a perfect old-fashioned twist to an all American-type menu.
