People often ask us about the secret to our success. Itâ€™s no secret. You see it at the restaurant every day. We all love what we do.
Itâ€™s been that way since Drago and Klara Cvitanovich opened our restaurant in 1969. They set out to offer delicious seafood and a good time to guests for a reasonable price. At that time, they couldnâ€™t even imagine how many guests that would become.
Today itâ€™s still a family atmosphere. Klara is still at the front to greet our guests. Tommy Cvitanovich, Drago and Klaraâ€™s son, is there to see that things run smoothly. And though 88-year-old Drago doesnâ€™t select the oysters himself anymore, you can still see him at the restaurant when heâ€™s not on duty as Grandpa.
Our family has grown a lot since the early daysâ€”and our work family too. It would be impossible to do what we do without our very hard-working and loyal staff. Dragoâ€™s now has more than 300 employees who help us carry our legacy forward. And we all have a great time doing it!
Dragoâ€™s knows how to throw a good party. Our specially outfitted Charbroiling Engine Co. fire truck is the talk of the town, and with good reason! Our customized truck has won multiple tailgating contests, including a spot at the tailgating championship finals at the Super Bowl in Dallas!
Our fire truck is fitted with special chargrills, beer taps, flat screen televisions on Direct TVâ€”even a Jagermeister dispenser! Look for it at fairs, festivals, or Saints games at the Super Bowlâ€”where it won a 2010 tailgating competition. Come see it for yourself or rent it for your special event!
