Bennigans is opening in Mandan soon but it's not your daddy's Bennigans.

Rob Knoll and Monte Stein (owner of Capital City Restaurant supply), are the new players of this franchise and bought the rights for this Legendary American brand

The slogan for this traditional American franchise reboot is Irish Hospitality, American fare.

What does that mean exactly?

Well, the popular menu items will include the restaurant’s famous Monte Cristo, Oh, Baby Back Ribs, the Turkey O’Toole, Lina’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the Big Irish double-decker hamburger and specialty drinks. That's the American part.

The Irish part will be that the service is going to be fast and efficient. The beer selection is going to be traditional and the atmosphere is going to be fun.

Oh, and as you see in the picture above, they're gonna pour a nice Guinness. 

Sometimes when you get these franchise restaurants going, the atmosphere can only be about food, drinks and table turnover. Applebee’s and Perkins come to mind.

These guys seem to want to add a little more fun to the mix. Irish bar fun to make it more of a night destination spot where you have a nice family dinner then cozy up to the bar to watch the game or play trivia.

Judging by the video below I think they're on the right track.
