This is a great drug store with great food, medical personnel, a smal gift shop and the friendly people. Small town in the USA

We visited Columbia for the Turkey Hill experience but after reading the reviews on here about "a step back in time" and eating in a pharmacy, we thought it would be a fun place to take the kids for lunch. I'm a vegetarian and was very surprised at the menu options, typically I search and search for something that sounds... More

This restaurant is unbelievable. The food is good and the service is good and it is located in a busy Pharmacy. If I lived closer to it I would get all my medications here, then I would be able to eat here more often. If you haven't been here you really need to try it.

Hinkle's Pharmacy Restaurant is great! Clean with good, hearty food. Sitting in the booth is a wonderful reminder of a quieter, slower time. In addition to a nice eatery, the pharmacy has great little shop.

Agree with reviewer a step back in time. Was leaving York and looking for a lunch stop. Coming from the big city this was the impression I had of small towns. Clean, close knit and good value. Highly recommend stopping in.

I wouldn't say that this is a tourist attraction, but there is an old-fashioned "restaurant' with table and lots of counter service. Comfort food at good prices. A long-time hang out of locals who can give you an earfull of Columbia and area history, and tips on where to go from here. Hinkles also features an array of all kinds... More

While passing through Columbia recently we stopped into Hinkle's Pharmacy on the recommendation of our friend, Mod Betty for some lunch at the counter. It looks like the place hasn't changed in sixty years (which isn't a bad thing). Although the prices have gone up a touch, the menu selections were what you would expect from the good old days....
