OSWEGO – Rudy’s Lakeside Drive-in will launch this year’s Oswego County Salvation Army’s Guest Chef Dinners with a sampling of their favorite foods on March 12, with dining room and takeout service, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
The meal will include some of Rudy’s popular sea foods and summer fare, including clams, fish, macaroni salad, and tossed salad, along with desserts and beverages provided by members of the advisory board.
There will be two menu choices: fish pieces or two Texas hots; both served with fried clams, macaroni salad, tossed salad, and assorted desserts.
The dinner will be at the Salvation Army Center for Worship and Service, 73 W. Second St.
Future Guest Chef Dinners this year will be provided through the generosity of The American Foundry on April 24, La Parilla on June 12, Zonta Club of Oswego on September 11, the Press Box on October TBA, and Canale’s Restaurant on November 13.
Rudy’s is one of Oswego’s most unique and popular summer eating places, known for its efficient service and a great variety of fun foods cooked to order while you watch.
It has been operated by the same family since 1946, with members of the fourth generation now on staff.
Rudy’s Lakeside Restaurant will open for the season on March 14. This is their 11th consecutive year providing Guest Chef Dinners.
The Guest Chef Dinners are organized by the Salvation Army Advisory Board and offered to the community to raise funds for fresh-cooked meals in both Fulton and Oswego and other services that are provided to individuals and families in need throughout Oswego County.
The food is donated so all receipts go to the work of the Army.
Information about The Salvation Army or about serving as a volunteer is available at 343-6491 or at the office at 73 W. Second St.
