It's kind of like time is frozen inside this diner in the Tremont shopping center, where the retro menu items (burgers, crinkle-cut fries, milkshakes) have retro prices to match. The staff will treat you like they've been waiting on you since you were a kid - which, for many of their customers, is true.

The sign's a little, uh, quaint, but don't let that stop you from checking out this great locally owned grocery store. They've got a beautiful produce section, lots of made-in-Ohio items and a nice lineup of prepared take-out meals. Plus, their well-stocked liquor section was the first in the state to offer carryout liquor sales on Sundays. Sweet!
