LANCASTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — Open for two and a half years now, Skoob's Village Grille is known by many for its chicken wings, and its loyal customers.
Owner William Skubis said customers have been supporting the restaurant and donating to local charities that he tells them about.
"Two Josh Allen jerseys were donated to me by the VFW post on Walden, and we were selling lottery tickets for them. So we raised a thousand dollars for them. The people are just...my customers are just good people," said Skubis.
Since the pandemic began, the restaurant has been on a roller coaster ride.
"We closed down totally, we came back, then we were really doing pretty well thanks to our customers. And now this last bout it's pretty trying, you know, this is a tough one here," said Skubis. "We're only open three days a week now. I have a skeleton crew we're running with but we're making it work,"
Despite facing their own struggles, he said they still want to give back to the community.
"Right now I'm doing a toy drive. So even if you aren't ordering you can call up and say I have a toy, and we'll put in on the delivery route and they'll pick it up at your house," said Skubis.
The restaurant is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
