The Founders

When the first TBonz opened in 1985, we had no idea where we would be today. We thought, let's do this restaurant thing until we "grow up" and then at that point, we can go and get "real jobs". Well, that was 28 years ago so that means either we have yet to grow up, or that this is our real job. In reality, it's probably a little bit of both.
