While some kids spend their high school years hiding in their rooms, owner Joe Rusich spent his under the hood of a car. After graduation, he decided to turn his passion for cars into a full-time career, working various mechanic jobs before opening his own shop. A true family-run business, guests to the original Mandeville Auto Repair might recall Joe's daughter helping her dad fetch tools or loosen lug nuts, while today, at Northshore Automotive Repair, they'll find Joe's wife handling the administrative side of things and his son offering a hand during the summer months.
Joe's team has been tending to the needs of foreign, domestic, and talking cars at their current location for more than 13 years. Over 25 years of experience informs the owner as he oversees oil changes, brake repairs, and total engine overhauls performed by a hard-working staff––many of whom are also family members. But above all, Joe prides himself on his honest, high-quality service, and if he can't address a customer's specific issue himself, he'll gladly recommend another expert who can.
Allen's Automotive Sales & Repair's team of experienced technicians keeps vehicles running and rolling smoothly with maintenance services done quickly and carefully. During the oil change, staffers drain engines' used motor oil and refill reservoirs with pristine new fluids collected fresh from the downpour of a petroleonimbus cloud. The second option one-ups the standard oil change with a tire rotation, where mechanics swap autos' circular feet, prolonging tire life by distributing tread wear evenly. During the thorough brake inspection, technicians analyze vehicles' stopping components, including pads, rotors, and trunk parachutes. The entire process takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete, whether customers opt for the oil change or oil-change package.
Nestled in the heart of historic midtown Mobile, Ashland Midtown Pub catches the eyes of passersby with its pleasant open-air patio before ensnaring them with the irresistible wafting aromas of cheesy breadsticks, roasted garlic, and freshly baked pizzas and calzones. Once inside, guests perch upon cushy barstools, surrounded by colorful canvases and plates of piping-hot lasagna or fillets of ahi tuna and flaky blackened grouper. Diners polish off feasts of po’ boys or basil-and-bacon-crowned pizzas with frosty draft brews at the rustic, knotty-pine bartop. As they sup on meals of upscale pizzeria cuisine, patrons dance to the tunes of live musicians or enjoy the interior's fresh, clean air thanks to the pub's no-smoking and no-rudimentary-steam-engine policies.
