Bonnie Brae Tavern
The Bonnie Brae Tavern has been the rock of the neighborhood since 1934 when Carl Dire converted his gas station into a tavern, installing had four booths and a bar with eight stools. Carl’s wife, Sue, did all the cooking. Hamburgers, beers and shots of whiskey cost a dime. Dire’s sons Michael and Henry had to enlarge the place to accommodate the crowds who come for the homemade pizza, prime rib and spaghetti dinners. Generous portions, reasonable prices and legendary pizza make this the neighborhood favorite. The décor is well-scrubbed linoleum floors and leatherette booths. Grandsons Michael and Dick still run this neighborhood classic.
