“He was really happy to see most everything was just like he remembered. He spent a lot of time here as a kid running around the restaurant and so I said, ‘Well why don’t I just give you a little tour?’ So we checked out one of our walk-in coolers which he remembered vividly and he was really surprised to see it still in operation all these years later.”
The star-studded lunch consisted of a cheeseburger, a bowl of chili and a frosted malt of some kind. Lowe was dining with his father and another couple the pair was travelling with. Of course, the meal was capped with some of The Spot’s pies for the table.

He was super, very talkative, you could just tell he was very excited to be here. It had been a while since he’d been here and I think he was just really happy with the visit.”
