Big newz for fans of Suze! Susie's Roadhouse is reopening Thursday (September 15, 2022) just 36 miles south of Rochester, Minnesota.

Susie's Roadhouse, 407 Main St in Ostrander, Minnesota, closed down a couple months ago to remodel, do a deep clean, and get ready to open again under new ownership. Despite a delay thanks to shipping issues, Susie's will be open Thursday.

When I saw the "we're opening' post on Susie's Roadhouse, Facebook Page, I reached out to get some details. The new owner is Hesper Everson. If that name sounds familiar it's because she owns the Skjenke Bom Lounge in Grand Meadow (where they do Taco Thursdays!). 

Everson, "had been going to Susie's for a long time and thought it was a good opportunity for some updates and a deep clean." If you check their Facebook page, you can check out all the updates, the stories of delayed shipments, and the photo-by-photo drama of the floor being refinished (the pics are pretty cool).

Susie's Roadhouse was opened in 1994 by Marc Shumann, and according to a 2002 story in the Rochester PB, "He opened the restaurant in 1994 with one major goal: 'Make a fun place.'"

Take U.S. 63 to Spring Valley, then Fillmore County Road 1 to downtown Ostrander. Then eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. Boom.
