You just can’t keep Brints Diner down.

The restaurant, which operates out of a tiny Valentine diner at 4834 E. Lincoln, closed late last month, the third time the restaurant has closed since longtime owner Jessie Medina shuttered it in October of 2012.

New owner Larry Harmon, the founder of Larry Bud's Sports Bar & Grill, gave the place a thorough cleaning and quietly reopened the doors a couple of weeks ago, he said.  His menu is similar to what regular Brints customers had come to expect and focuses on “country breakfast” items plus diner lunches ranging from burgers to salads.

Brints hours are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. It’s closed on Sundays.

The restaurant is famous not only for its 2007 inclusion on Guy Fieri's show"Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" back in 2007 but also for operating inside a Valentine diner. About 2,000 of the buildings were made by Wichita's Valentine Manufacturing between 1938 and 1971, and architecture buffs are still passionate about them.
