For those of us that can remember the old and gone restaurants of Pikeville or Pike County, what was your favorites? I can think of two right off, Pasquales and 460 Drive Inn, also Pollyanna Drive In theater concession stand food. The best chilli I ever ate on a hot dog!

Shorts drug store. Great hamburgers and those little mini-juke boxes in every booth! Those were the days. Frostee Freeze in elkhorn was always a summer treat. The Willow Tree drive in was also a favorite Way Back When....

I remember three restaurants that we had lunch at from Belfry High School. Top Hat, Manhatten, and Belfry Lunch. Great memories of a welcome break away from that school building in the middle of the day.
