Fat Sal’s is recovering after an early morning crash which wrecked the storefront and dining area. 😲
It doesn’t take much for the littlest thing to throw off your morning routine: running out of toothpaste, forgetting where you put your keys, an unexpected back up on Slauson Avenue.
Imagine what a surprise it was for Fat Sal‘s employees when a car bashed through the storefront of one of Hollywood’s busier restaurants.
At around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning a boxy van lurched through the parking lot off of Highland and Fountain, jumped onto the sidewalk, and rammed into Fat Sal’s. The home of killer sandwiches and viral pop-ups, like the Coming To America transformation, was covered in glass and broken furniture. Luckily, no one was injured; the crew remained safe in the back as they prepped for the restaurant to open at 11:00 a.m.
According to reports, the woman crashed into the building with her car due to “mechanical failures.” Fat Sal’s isn’t pressing any charges and reps are saying that they don’t know when the beloved eatery will reopen.
On a positive note: Fat Sal’s just opened a smaller takeout food space a few doors down in the same complex so guests can still get their fix.
