LaPorte, IN – Local restaurant Round The Clock will be hosting a visit from America’s Best Restaurants in late January 2023.

America’s Best Restaurants, a national media and marketing company focusing on local, independently-owned restaurants, will bring its ABR Roadshow to the restaurant on January 30th. Popular dishes will be highlighted, along with an extensive on-camera interview with owner John Cristos about the restaurant’s special place in the community. The episode will be aired extensively on social media channels at a later date.

The original Round The Clock restaurant was started in 1962 in Gary, Indiana, by Cristos’ father, who came over from Greece. The elder Cristos and his four brothers opened many restaurants in northern Indiana. John opened the LaPorte location in 1982. The local chain has been such a mainstay in the community for so long, the restaurants developed an app for customers to download for ease in ordering.

Round The Clock offers an extensive all-day diner menu with a Greek influence. Breakfast house specialties, served all day, include fruit pancakes and biscuits and gravy. The diner also boasts an extensive dessert menu featuring the customer favorite RTC Napoleon pastry.

America’s Best Restaurants will be filming on location on January 30th from 9 am to noon CST. The press is invited to attend. Round The Clock’s finished episode premiere date will be announced on their Facebook page and will be featured on America’s Best Restaurants’ website.
