In mid-2010, the landmark Blue Star Diner transferred ownership for only the 2nd time in its more than 50 year history. It was purchased by Belleville Diners from the Blentson family (and its well known owner Ms. Fannie Blentson, everyone simply knew her as 'Fannie'). She lovingly owned the diner since it was originally in Woodstock, VA in the late 1950s. In the early 1960s, she and her husband had the diner carefully and amazingly moved to Newport News by truck - to its current and permanent location.

Fannie was loved by the community and was responsible for personally cooking home-style meals for many thousands of people over the decades. In the few years prior to Fannie's passing and the subsequent sale of the property by her children, the diner was leased to various folks as Fannie became a little too old to operate it on her own everyday.

Our company, Belleville Diners, specializes in the restoration and preservation of historic diners in America. We have a strong passion for history and for home-style cooking done with only the freshest and highest quality ingredients. All of the diners we own are originals, from the 1940s and 1950s only. We do not own or operate any recreations.

Starting in mid-2012, we plan to begin a restoration of the building in order to make it again look how it originally did in the late 1950s. We will also be updating the air conditioning, electrical, and plumbing systems - as well as building a new modern kitchen i
