For almost 50 years, Olga's Diner at the intersection on Routes 70 & 73 in Marlton, was a fixture in South Jersey, but in 2008, the popular restaurant closed for business.  Now, according to, Olga's is returning.

The new Olga's will be located about a mile away from the original location.  Owners, Bill Dovas and Chris Kolovos, are taking over the spot that previously was home to Carollo's Family Restaurant (next to Chick-Fil-A on Route 73 & Baker Blvd).

The owners of the new Olga's promise a true "diner" experience, which should not be too difficult since Dovas owns the Penrose Diner in Philadelphia and Kolovos owns the Colonial Diner in Woodbury, NJ.

Dovas and Kolovos do not have a relationship with the original owner's of Olga's and "aside from the name and place, the eatery will be their original concept, rather than a full reboot of the old Olga's."

The restaurant plans to open in early 2019.
