The Chamber, friends and family welcomed Duke’s Old Fashioned Onion Burgers to our business community on June 29th with an open house and ribbon cutting. The fries were cooking, the burgers were on the grill, the salads were prepared, and all the variety of fries served were amazing. Dukes has a HUGE assortment of fries to offer folks – not just regular fries. He serves Spanish fries (only served here and in Oklahoma), carne asada fries, taco fries, chili & cheese fries, bacon & cheese fries, and the list go on! Guests grazed to their heart’s content on all the delicious food served by owner, Frank Schultz, and his staff. The renovated building at 5020 Baltimore Drive has been transformed into a friendly neighborhood restaurant serving the finest Oklahoma style hamburgers, fresh cut fries and hand-dipped milkshakes. Founder and Owner Frank Schultz prides himself on making dressings, pickles, ketchup, and other items from scratch and serving only fresh items to his customers.
La Mesa Mayor, Mark Arapostathis, presented Frank with a certificate of appreciation for opening his business in La Mesa. He was joined by representative Moana Alo from Assembly Member Akilah Weber’s office and Marc Schaefer from Senator Brian Jones’s office with certificates of appreciation as well. The Chamber presented Frank with his membership plaque, as well as a welcome to our community certificate. The crowd was lively, and were entertained by live performers, Anna, and Chris Brogan, of the IDEAS Band. The evening was a perfect WELCOME to this new business in La Mesa. Be sure and stop by Duke’s Old Fashioned Onion Burgers at 5020 Baltimore Drive – you’ll be glad you did!
