Does anyone know why Dick and Dora's closed? This restaurant was a Massapequa landmark. My family has been going there for over 50 years. I hope someone will takeover and re-open it.

Permanently closed. A person who was passing by told me they are going to knock it down and build more condo's like they did down the block on the site of Fox's (Arthurs).

I was so disappointed to hear they closed. My husband's grandparents had a summer home in Massapequa in the 30s and started the tradition. I loved the place and will miss it and the people.

Wow. I came back to Massapequa, my home town, and took my girlfriend with me down memory lane. We drove to Dick 'n' Dora's and my heart just sunk. I can't believe it is gone. I'm just grateful to have a treasure chest of fond memories - thank you for that.

The place turned in to White Trash hell hole. Dick & Doras outlived it's stay in Massapequa here comes an Indian Dollar store in it's place or more condo's on Alhambra Road. No get rid of the Sh@it hole boat Marina at the end of Alhambra Road. The guy Joe is an @ss hole and rip off artist. He hawked stolen parts for years.

About time: Dick & Dora was a rat infested resturant with numerous Town violations.I did a pesticide job there 1 year ago and used alot of agents to destroy pests, traps caught 20 rats in Dick & Dora's and about 50 mice. Dropping were all over the kitchen, this place was bad.

It wasn't like that years ago..20 years maybe..don't know where this trash talk about joe is from..but unnecessary...the guy died the other day..most likely from a broken heart seeing what became of his beloved D and D's.

I loved Dick and Doras and went there for 23 years. I don't get the negative comments. In 23 years I never saw one roach, mouse or anything bad. It is ridiculous they would serve a dish with a roach on it so someone just has a vendetta against them. The owners and staff were always nice and friendly also. I wonder where the chef and workers went? Miss you guys !
