Drakes retro diner closes

Published 11:25 am Wednesday, January 6, 2016

Let’s Twist Again, located at 4830 Drakes Main St., recently shut its doors. The downtown retro diner opened for business on Oct. 11, 2014, and sought to provide customers with a throwback to the 50s and 60s-era dining style. After moving to Virginia in 2009 and locating to Charlotte County several years later, sisters Cheryl Hillegus and Celina Robinson secured the then vacant building on Drakes Main Street and transformed it into an family-style restaurant. The restaurant offered customers a variety of food options ranging from burgers, hot dogs, BLTs, shakes, floats and homemade waffle cones. The owners, Hillegus and Robinson could not be reached for comment.
