The garage rags as napkins and gas hoses as faucets sold my wife for this being one of the most fun themed restaurants to open in this area. Loved the food too.

We love Fords Garage and it doesn’t matter if it’s lunch or dinner, the food is always good. We’ve had so-so service before that is the exception to the rule. I would definitely recommend it. Unique decor to keep things interesting.

Be careful if your order the fish and chips. They put the fried fish ON TOP of the french fries, making the fries not edible being very greasy. If nothing else, tell them you want the two components of this meal side by side...just sayin'

Sorry just seeing this, my guess would be the kitchen would close 1 hour before the restaurant does. That is pretty standard procedure except for bars. But I do not know for sure.
