I am happy to report that Buddy’s Diner will reopen tomorrow, August 4, 2012. As stated in a previous post a couple of weeks ago, Buddy’s had been seized by the Massachusetts Department of Revenue for non-payment of taxes.

As soon as this happened, the rumor mill was very active and chief among them was the story that the diner would reopen soon. In fact the first date I heard was this coming Monday. But today I received an email from David Hebb stating that the diner will in fact open at 5:30 am tomorrow. I would tend to believe Dave as he is a regular customer at Buddy’s going back 30 plus years now.

So it seems that owner Nicole Bairos has made an arrangement with the DOR to make some sort of restitution. I may make a visit myself tomorrow and check things out.

  1. Oh, how nice for them and you. I had a dog ‘Buddy’ for years, I love that this place is named the same. Whenever we made burgers to BBQ at home, we always made a ‘Buddy Burger’ just for our dog. He would sit away from the patio so patiently until daddy called him over for his treat (sans bun & condiments). He’d eat it so gentle…we of course loved seeing him enjoy it so much.
