Sonoma’s Fremont Diner Reopens as Boxcar Fried Chicken and Biscuits

Hooray, they're back!

The beloved Fremont Diner has been reborn as Boxcar Fried Chicken and Biscuits,

Owners Erika and Chad Harris closed Sonoma’s much-loved Southern-inspired diner in late June saying the spot was a victim of its own success. Now, however, they’re back in business with a pared-down menu featuring some of their most popular dishes — fried chicken, biscuits,  sandwiches, and sides like pimento cheese, collard greens and baked beans.

The key is offering fast service, something that plagued the Fremont Diner. The restaurant opened Wednesday, and we’ll have more details and pictures coming soon. Open Monday through Friday from 11a.m. to 3p.m., 2698 Fremont Dr., Sonoma,
