A Dayton-area restaurant known just as much for its owner’s big personality as its food will shut its doors temporarily.
Voltzy’s Rootbeer Stand at 4668 Springboro Pike in Moraine will be closed at least through Friday, owner Rick Volz says on the restaurant’s voicemail.
He announced on Facebook and Voltzy’s voicemail that he will undergo a toe amputation.
“Depending on how well I heal, I will let everyone know when we re-open,” Volz says in the voicemail.
He urged customers to follow the restaurant’s Facebook page for updates.

Voltzy’s is best known for its burgers, house-made soups, slaw dogs, coneys and root beer floats.
People also go there for a fun-loving back-and-forth with Voltz.
The restaurant closed in May 2016 when Volz entered the hospital for foot surgery. It re-opened that October.

The restaurant remained open when Volz had a surgery in March 2017.
