TOWSON, Md. - Everyone has been anxiously awaiting, and today was the day that Gino's finally opened.
After a 30 year absence in the Baltimore, Gino's once again opened it's doors with fires, onion rings and shakes.
At 6:30 this morning Bruce Voge and his buddies were first in line and the self proclaimed burger connoisseur has eaten burgers all over the country says "I wanted to see how the Gino Giant stacked up against some of the burgers in the country...just wanted to see how it wen up against those and some of the bigger chains like In and Out Burger int eh wast and Fat Burgers, I think it stacks up against all of them quite frankly."
Yvonne Sweitzer goes way back with Gino and Bill, back to a 1962 training facility in Westminster. She's glad Gino's is back and when asked how good the burgers are shes says "delicious it tastes just like it did before only fresher."
The place was packed with people who had fond memories of Gino's. Kathleen Kropp brought members of her family because she says Gino's is special.
"Gino's is special to me because, what it was about community back then and they were invested in their community and they gave people jobs and besides that their food was an awsome product."
Kathleen loves the food so much that she is about to open three franchises with her partner Sofi Kennedy in White Marsh, Perry Hall and Dundalk.
Baltimoreans are sure glad to have Gino's back where they belong.
