So, so, so sad. Another area icon gone. Pretty soon they'll all be gone & this won't be "home" anymore.

Worst service I ever had, once the last owner, had it. The guy managing the place seemed more concerned on which waitress, he could do next, instead of really doing any managing. I wonder if his daddy bought another place for him to run in to the ground?

Oh yes, teaberry ice cream! When I was growing up (back when dinosaurs ruled the earth), we'd visit relatives in Carbon County and the trips to Leibys' were always SO special! Partly because we've never been able to get teaberry ice cream down here in the DC area (not to my knowledge, anyhow). I realize that "time marches," but I hate to see these old and beloved restaurants and other businesses shut down. I don't precisely hate the "chain" restaurants, but after all, they ARE all the same...

Was good years ago, the last couple years the service went bad, food wasnt as good, even the ice cream went to a second grade, well that is an ideal spot for a huge gas station , convience store, will give Hess and the rest a run for their money, with a stop light there will make it easy for patrons, good investment property though! And really Leibys ice cream wasnt all that great either, I have tasted better at other dairies over the years

You can get Teaberry ice cream at Heisler's Diary in Tamaqua along with other flavors you can't find.

"....location at the corner of Routes 443 and 209...."

I believe the article should report "443 and 309". Although not much diff between South Tamaqua and Lehighton....

No one has a problem with LEGAL immigrants. It's the ILLEGAL ALIENS that we have a problem with.

I agree. Their blueberry pie was incredible, the ice cream was good but not that special

I was at the West Penn Township Building and was told by the Secretary that the place is being knocked down. The owners are making way for a NEW SQUARE ONE Market. Something in the lines of WaWa or Sheetz

This is a sad reflection on our entire culture, the most prosperous country in the world is going broke and a place where you had to wait in line to get into is closed down. We've become a nation of people who can foul up a two car funeral.
