Hank’s staying afloat on wheels

It’s not the typically long line of people waiting for Sunday brunch, but Hank’s Place hasn’t lost its devoted patrons.

There was a line out in front of Hank’s Place Sunday. However, it wasn’t the typically long line of people waiting to get inside for Sunday brunch. Instead, it was more like a handful of people waiting to order at the temporary food trailer parked in front of the iconic Chadds Ford eatery on Route 1 at Creek Road.

The restaurant building remains unusable after filling with more than seven feet of water during the Sept. 1 flood. Owners Anthony and Katie Young plan to rebuild but won’t know exactly what the rebuild will look like until another meeting with engineers and architects. They said Sunday that they should go public with plans sometime after the first of the year.

They’re keeping the business alive by offering grab-and-go service with a limited menu and limited hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday until the rebuild. They’re able to do some cooking in the trailer. Sunday’s menu consisted of breakfast sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, fries, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.
