Good Food and Good Service in a Pharmacy

I am always amazed by how good the food is here as well as the service. I haven't had a bad meal here. Plus they give a 10 percent discount to veterans.

I have gone to Hinkles many times and must say that I have always gotten a good meal for a good price. Their portions are large and the staff is courteous. Plus you can go shopping for your medicinal / holiday needs after you eat!

Mt wife and I arrived shortly after noon and got the last 2 seats at the counter. It took some time for a waitress to arrive with a menu, but they did seem to be understaffed. I had the wings with fries and my wife had a salad with grilled chicken. Both meals were very good and reasonably priced. We... More

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.
