Jimmy Fallon Loves Sokolowski's University Inn

Jimmy Fallon loves Sokolowski's University Inn.

The late night television host made a surprise visit to the restaurant yesterday evening after wrapping up a promotional gig in Cleveland with an NBC affiliate.

"It was just before we opened yesterday," co-owner Bernie Sokolowski told Scene. "A car pulled up and some people where waiting outside. We offered for them to come in to get out of the cold. It turned out to be Jimmy Fallon, his sister, and some NBC folks." He's pretty much the last person you think you would see, Sokolowski added.

When asked why he'd chosen University Inn, Fallon said that Michael Symon told him if he was ever in Cleveland to stop by Sokolowski's (thatta boy, Chef Symon!).

After a restaurant tour, in which he pointed out the famous Bill Clinton table and joked he wanted a Fallon table, the TV host talked to customers and posed for some quick pics before being sent home with the largest doggie bag ever.

"We packed up a bunch of our classics," Sokolowski said. "...stuffed cabbage, potato pancakes, periogies, potato soup, kielbasi and sauerkraut" to take back on his jet to New York City.

Fallon then posted this to Twitter:
