PERRYOPOLIS, Pa. (KDKA) – A diner in Fayette County is officially “Jason Momoa approved.”
On Facebook, Rinnie’s Place on Route 51 in Perryopolis posted a photo of Jason Momoa on his motorcycle, posing in front of a sign that said “Welcome Jason M.”
The owner says she heard he was filming in the area and was hoping he would visit. So, she made a sign. At first, it said “Welcome Jason.” But after he didn’t stop by, she changed it to “Welcome Jason M.”
The restaurant owner, Kim, says two motorcycles pulled into the parking lot one day. One of the riders took off his helmet, and she instantly recognized Jason Momoa because of his hair.
He had seen the sign on Route 51 and decided to stop by. He joked about how expensive the breakfast special was because the sign said $399 rather than $3.99.
Kim and her daughter Virginia own Rinnie’s Place.
“My daughter and I are humbled and grateful for all the attention we have been getting because Jason Momoa saw our sign and stopped in for breakfast,” Kim said.
“He and his crew are wonderful people and we have enjoyed our time with them. They are more than welcome to stop back anytime they are in town.”
Momoa, best known for starring as DC Comics’ “Aquaman,” is in Pittsburgh to shoot a new feature film for Netflix.
“Sweet Girl” is a thriller starring Momoa, who is a husband and father looking to seek justice for his wife’s death while protecting his daughter and company from corruption.
Momoa will produce and Brian Andrew Mendoza will make his directorial debut.
In addition to “Aquaman,” Momoa is also well known for his role in “Game of Thrones.”
