Three Way Garage?

I have been away for many years. Is the Three Way Garage still open. I also remember a place to eat was next to it. As kids and teenagers it was a treat to go there and have hamburger & fries. I guess I have told my age, very old.

Thank you for posting all the info. you provided. I too have many fond memories there. For the general area it was really the only place for teenagers to hang out. I remember Kenneth Phillips very well. Sorry to hear about his passing. He was a really nice man. Everyone liked him and yes he was very helpful to many people. My family would always get our gas there. I can remember one waitress in paticular. Her name was Nola Sexton and lived out West Robbins way. She was always good to us young people. Sorry to hear the building no longer stands. I think it is sad when old landmarks get torn down. Again thanks for responding.

I'm guessing it used to be a diner/cafe? that is really cool. would have been great if someone would have opened it in its former state, a 50's diner with a jukebox and waitresses in poodle skirts would be so fun.
