The opening of the Pronto Pup in Rockaway Beach Saturday may have been more than successful than owner Anthony McNamer expected.

He and his staff were working nonstop throughout the morning and afternoon to handle a flood of customers that often meant lines going out the door and down Sixth Street.

It wasn’t until after 4 p.m. before the flow of customers slowed down and McNamer made a rough guess that his new restaurant had served between 500 and 1,000 customers.
