Lacey Mizell

When Lacey Mizell opened Tom-n-Lou’s 34 Drive-In in February 2021, she knew running a successful restaurant out of the 700-square-foot space at 8819 Ogden Ave. was going to be a tall order.

But she also knew the Ogden Avenue corridor brought tens of thousands of vehicles past the building each day and that the restaurant probably wouldn’t be what eventually would succeed there.

Last week, Mizell told the Landmark that after getting a clear message from the village that her wish to obtain a video gambling license was not going to be granted, she may look at demolishing the existing building and redeveloping the property, ideally as multifamily residential.
