This is an adorable and well preserved lunch counter. Since it was my first time there, I was unsure on the ordering protocols. One grabs their silverware and napkins, orders from the counter, takes drink to table with them, and then waits for their food. The chicken pot pie is delicious but it sells out fast. Everybody was very kind.... More

This place is a reminder of a time that was. I always get a hamburger and fries and the food and service has always been good. Prices are good as well.

My wife likes the club sandwich and the chicken salad got raves from our guest. Milkshakes are also great. Service is efficient and friendly. Park in their lot... More

Went for lunch. Had a hamburger and fries and a old time milkshake. The milkshake was in a shiny chrome goblet poured into a milkshake glass and the goblet still 1/4 full was left at the table for me to finish. What a great day.

The problem with eating here is that they do not follow any sort of food prep hygiene guidelines, and that is disgusting to me. No gloves, no hair nets, nothing. Thanks but no.
