      These places are the absolute best. You can always get a good grilled cheese at a drug store lunch counter. And rum next to The Dry Look? Sounds like trouble: friends don’t let friends style drunk.

        I wish I had a couple of stomachs to come with me on these Retro Roadmap adventures, as I still was plenty full from the Neptune Diner AND had already passed up the Prospect Diner. Next time I’ll be sitting at the counter for sure!

        I know, isn’t it? Crazy thing is I almost missed it by parking in their parking lot. Now I know to “case the joint” looking for bonuses like this!

      I’ve driven by Columbia on the highway a zillion times but rarely been through the actual town.

      I love how this is so “retro” yet it’s still just an average working business. I totally have to go try their lunch counter!

      I’ve been meaning to visit the Clock & Watch Museum in Columbia anyway … now I can just pair the two 🙂

      I want to go to the Clock and Watch museum as well, and think Retro Roadhusband will enjoy the visit – good excuse to get lunch at the lunch counter at Hinkles – there’s also a pretty large antiques’ co-op across the street from Hinkle’s and a few neat downtown signs as well. Worth the visit for sure!
