Renovations took 90 days. Aston said that customers would stop by and urged him not to make drastic changes to the restaurant. He heeded the advice.
His business was severely affected by a devastating fire one Saturday morning in January 1985. After contacting the fire department, employees called Aston about the crisis. As Aston drove to the building, he saw several fire crews in action, including one fire fighter at the top of a fire truck's extended ladder hosing flames engulfing part of the roof.

An electrical short in an exhaust fan above a fryer vent sparked the flames. Fire damage was restricted mainly to the kitchen, office and restrooms, but water and smoke damaged other areas of the restaurant, Aston said.
That self examination involves tweaking the menu and service while avoiding rash changes to match the vogue trend of the moment that may prove detrimental long term, Aston said.

"My philosophy and the staff's philosophy is that consistency is the key. If you are consistent and your customers know what to expect, it makes it much easier to maintain success," said owner Dwight Aston.
