Last year, Prom Catering took over the clubhouse concessions stand at Como Golf Course and introduced Sparky’s, a limited-menu restaurant with items such as salads and hot dogs. This season, the company has responded to the community’s request for fresher food by offering an expanded menu that includes a long list of burgers, sandwiches and highly addictive French fries.
The name and logo have also been changed: the moniker Cozy’s Pub brings to mind a quaint community gathering spot, and the new logo is more reflective of the beautiful surroundings that make the restaurant so appealing to golfers and neighbors alike.
“Our main goal is to provide more for the neighborhood,” manager Don Siggelkow said. “We’ve done well with golfers. We kept a lot of the grab-and-go items like hot dogs that the golfers like, but we are seeing more and more families come in. We’ve switched from frozen to fresh; we now use fresh hamburger meat for our burgers, for example.”
The executive chef from Prom Catering has developed a menu that is conducive to the small kitchen space but still offers interesting choices, such as the Firehouse Burger with hot pepper cheese, jalapenos and red pepper sauce. The restaurant has also switched to full table service instead of counter service and new furniture has been added, both inside and out, to “spruce the place up,” Siggelkow said.
Hours have been extended and a simple, reasonably priced weekend breakfast menu has been added. The restaurant is open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
“We are trying to be the place in the neighborhood that everyone wants to come to,” Siggelkow said.
