It’s a cabbage-roll week at Falb’s.

The family owned, cafeteria-style restaurant has been serving up hot dinners, soups and sandwiches since 1920. Yes, this year marks the 100th anniversary of Falb’s Restaurant.

“We are very proud to continue our family tradition that our grandfather (Karl Falb) started, and our father (Joe Falb Sr.) and uncle (Carl Falb) continued, to our third generation ownership,” said Joe and Dwayne Falb, current owners of the restaurant. “We know they are proud! We contribute our success to our loyal customers who continue to come in for quick and friendly service, along with great quality food at an affordable price.”

The rolls will be served at a first-come, first-serve basis beginning each third Friday of the month at 10 a.m. until they run out.

Owners usually keep customers updated on their Facebook page when they are running low on rolls, and it's easy to see why by reading the comments — loyal customers of Falb's can't get enough.
