Does anyone out there remember the name of the Grill back in the 1950's and early 60's that sat where Jim Cook's Chevrolet is now? Seems as though there was the name 'blue' in it but not quite sure. I know there was blue lights that surrounded it, sorta dim-lit too. It wasn't the Dutch Grill nor the Catawba Grill. My friend and I just can't seem to remember.

Well there was the Burger Boy that was in the Nara Nara building. Run by Jim Huskins and a damn good place to eat. Then you had the Jumbo down where the steak house is located.

I remember those yes, they came later. This was before those. I'm not sure but was it owned by Lee Jones? There was a lumber mill that sat where Lady Marian Plaza is now and highway 70 was a 2 lane road.
Can someone help us remember these names?

I remember my sister talking about one on the five lane (hwy 70 then) called Shannons drive-in maybe? Lee Jone's grill was on East Court St across from Marion Buick/Pontiac.

Shannon's was located where Samir's used to be. It was operated by Irishman and his two daughters. Good food and nice waitresses. There was also a fellow who worked at the Amoco next door, some folks called him Jabo seems like he had muscular distrophy or something. He was always happy and smiling though.

I remember Shannons; Bill Shannon ran the place, daughters Linda and Dee. Wasn't there a place called the Dutch Grill as well?

My mom is in her 60's and lived here all her life so I asked her. She said it was either The Dutch Grill or The Dutchman's Grill.

The Dutch Grill was in the location where the Steak House is now and the roller skating rink (complete with canvas top) sat behind it. A man named Ed Hester was the owner. His wife Elizabeth worked for Dr. William Bell. The restaurant in question went out of business long before this one and the Catawba Grill. I'm in my early 60s so it would take someone older than me to remember this Grill.

Jumbo Grill was in front of the skating rink and where the Steak House is now. Ed Hester did run it. Had some of the best BBQ around at the time. Cheeseburgers were to die for and I can still almost taste the fries. The Dutch Grill was either where Hardees is or across the road in front of the old Bradley Lumber site. The building was moved to 221 North and still sits across from Accura Accounting, housing Catawba Properties and a new beauty salon. I remember Shannon's but nobody's mentioned Little Buck's on N. Main Street. No blue lights that I can remember but curb service was the rage of the day.
That building is now an insurance office. Then there was two railroad cars put together behind Belks, They had fairly good food and a juke box you could play 3 songs for a nickel. I don't remember any "blue" restaurant anywhere. Sorry1

Ifyouaskme, I remember Little Bucks had the absolute best foot-long hotdogs. The restaurant behind Belks (railroad car) was called Pearl's Cafe, owned by Pearl Queen of the Greenlee Community. The original site was wedged in between two buildings where the surveyors office is now and later she moved the car across the street beside Foam and Fabric. She made her hamburgers with a little soaked bread mixed in to make the ground beef go a little further. She also said it made the burgers tastier. She made her own mashed potatoes too. We would catch the bus on Saturday morning, ride to town and shop then later have supper at her place. By the way, does anyone remember the bus service that Marion had? The location to board and exit was on the side of the street where First Third Bank drive-thru is located now. Anyone out there who remembers more of these things from the past? Stores, cafe's and shops?

the hilltop grill on 221 had great cheeseburgers and the milkshakes were so thick they gave you a spoon and a straw.

When Ed Lancaster opened the Harvest Drive-in in PG the burgers were great and shakes were thick. And the counter in Roses on Main, remember bursting the ballons for the price?

I remember the balloons when Roses was on Main Street. We have one of their pickle jars they used to give away when they were empty.

Remeber when there was a pizza place beside the dentist offfice on the five lane?

I don't remember the name but I remember how great it smelled when you walked in the door. I think it is an accountants office now.
