A viewer asked us to check in to the rumor that iconic Italian restaurant Chuck and Ginny’s could be reopening in Erie. Turns out, the answer is yes!
This is the Arena Sports Bar, located in the 700 block of French Street. A new ownership agreement will include Mary Ellen Smith, whose parents started Chuck and Ginny’s in Erie in 1961.
The new place, called Chuck and Ginny’s at the Arena is promising the same sauce, lasagna, and parmesan dishes that made the original famous for decades.
