Popular north campus diner Jack & Benny’s is expanding once again. After opening the Barnstormer Diner at the OSU Airport in 2013, owners Geno and Hilda Garcia have announced plans to open a new location at 12 East Broad Street in the heart of Downtown Columbus.

The restaurant will be a bit of a return to the area for the business, which boasted a somewhat related establishment with the same name at 6 East Broad that closed several decades ago. And just like the original Downtown iteration, the new Jack & Benny’s will also boast 24-hour service, seven days a week, making it one of the few businesses in the area to serve food at all hours.

12 East Broad has hosted a string of various restaurant businesses over the past decade, most recently the very short lived Yuan-Ye, which only lasted around two months. Maki Go called the location home for one year from 2013 to 2014, and Cafe Lola came before that, operating from 2008 to 2012.

Stay tuned for additional information on the opening of Jack & Benny’s.
