    The Ramaco diner was located on Rt.17 North where the Wendys now sits. The owners from the mid 50’s until it closed were Frank and Al Trapkin. They also owned the Ramsey Oil Co. Nice Guys!

    How good it is to see the picture of the Ramaco Grill diner. It was owned by my father’s 1st cousins, Al and Frank Trapkin. My family used to stop there to visit and eat on the way to Monticello in the 1950s.

    My father was Al Renzo and did run the diner long time ago before I was born up until I was 3 years old.
