Daily Crave

Thurman to Go opens in Pataskala

Posted on:

The waits at the original Thurman Cafe in German Village are notoriously long--they got so bad that eight months ago, the restaurant added a small to-go operation next door to satisfy Thurmanator cravings on the fly.

That to-go counter has spawned a new cafe, Thurman To Go at 14950 E. Broad St. in Pataskala, which opened Monday. The grab-and-go counter is the restaurant's first-ever expansion out of its German Village home since opening in 1942. Aaron Suclescy, the 24-year-old son of one of Thurman's current owners, is helming the restaurant, and he says first-week business is booming, largely due to their lunchtime special: a five-ounce cheeseburger, coleslaw, a pickle spear and fries for $8.99. (You can still get a Thurmanator, too.)

"We wanted to do something people could eat more regularly and could still go back to work after eating," Suclescy says. "The five-ounce burger is a little more manageable."

It's the first of two expansion projects in the works: early next year, Suclescy's cousin Chris will open a second full-scale Thurman Cafe in Delaware, right on the square downtown.
