Remembering John Dombalis

Downtown Raleigh News Restaurant Breakfast Lunch Dinner Late Night Bar Historic Diner John Dombalis

From 1952 to 2002, this was the face that greeted our patrons

Today would have been John Dombalis’ 89th birthday, and we’d like to take this opportunity to remember him.  John started at the Mecca as a young child, not long after we opened.  He took over the daily operation in 1952, and remained until his death in 2002.  The Mecca is 83 years old, and he was here for 72 of them.  He loved his family, his many friends, and his church.  And he made us laugh.  John Dombalis will always be a part of the Mecca, and his memory lives on in the hearts of those who knew him.
