What a great place to step back in time and visit a real live soda fountain, we had the Dr J (chocolate ice cream malt with Dr Pepper syrup -- AMAZING!!) and other homemade treats including sandwiches, loved being able to play pool, board games,...pingpong, etc. They have an amazing collection of Dr Pepper memorabilia, worth the 10 minute trip off the highway! We loved it!!More

Stopped overnight in Salina and wanted dessert before we headed to our hotel. My husband found this place online- it was 12 miles away. Definitely worth it! It has tons of Dr Pepper memorabilia and the sundaes we had were wonderful! Their food menu looked...good too. The owner was there and was very friendly and talked to us.More

What a wonderful place. Stumbled in and went back in time. The 2nd largest Dr Pepper memorabilia collection is wonderful. The friendly owner and "jerk" then make the most delicious treats. Had a great time and so glad we stopped in.

What a great Kansas treasure to stop for an old time soda fountain drink and view the worlds 2nd largest collection of Dr. Pepper Memorabilia. You will not believe your eyes. The old building in Bennington, Kansas has been lovingly restored and has a REAL...old time soda fountain with brass rail to put your feet on. They have everything you can imagine to drink including Green Rivers, Cherry Phosphates, Sodas, Shakes, etc. as well as a selection of made to order food. You will have plenty to look at as you wait for your food. Rare and unusual Dr. Pepper items as well as a pool table and other games for your enjoyment. Take a side trip off I-70 and step back in time. K18 parallels I-70, easy to find and a great place to relax.More

Step back in time at this soda fountain in the old drugstore of a tiny town. They can make a soda just like they had in 1920. Wonderful ice cream, malts. Green River Floats with sherbet. Now serving sandwiches. Also houses an extensive Dr. Pepper...Collection and the back room has all kinds of games for the kids and you. If you are near Salina, Kansas or on I-135 north of I-70 it is worth the 12 mile drive. Recently featured on several Kansas Televisions StationsMore

This place is awesome!! It has an amazing Dr Pepper collection. Step back in time with the decor. Get a real Dr Pepper from the soda fountain. Food is great especially the brownies and old fashion ice Cream.

Thanks for writing a review. BTW this is the second largest collection of Dr Pepper items on display in the world! If you are traveling through Texas, visit the Museum in Waco to see more...but they do not have our brownies!!

A family member has always been raving about Linger Longer, so my wife and I finally made a short trek as well. What a place, while 54 years of age, the atmosphere takes you back to being a kid. If you remember the few soda...shops that still existed even at that time! You might find a little Dr Pepper memorabilia as well.. Food is simple and very good, Ice Cream, Floats and Shakes, phosphates, make the place special enough to make you linger longer than you had planned! Service was great and friendly, and I will conclude that if you are still reading this you need to make it a point to visit.. you won't be disappointed.More

Amazing place! We had heard about it and had been wanting to check it out. Great supper and lots of fun! I know I wasn't able to see all of the things they have displayed there... Huge Dr. Pepper collection! Original old fashioned soda fountain...where they can mix their own sodas and lots of different games.More

Very cool vintage soda fountain! Their homemade waffle cones are sooo delish. We loved all the ice cream specialties we ordered, and really enjoyed looking at all the Dr. Pepper memorabilia. Our grandson had fun with the pinball machine. Great, friendly place to visit!

Seriously, we had the best time here. My boys and I took my host girls on an adventure before they leave Kansas. I have the book of Kansas' best things to see, and Soda Fountains are on the list. After we hit Rock City, we...found that the Linger Longer was just down the road. It did NOT disappoint. They were so nice and helpful. We had 2 floats, an ice cream, a special malt and a sundae. Definitely try the Green River Float with the orange sherbet. It was delicious. Also, the value was great! I was expecting to pay more than $20 for everything...nope, not even close. $13 for all of it. Once you're done eating/drinking/plowing your face into your floats, go to the back and see all the games! Pinball, air hockey, pool, ping pong, board games, and tetherball in the courtyard. Your kids could stay busy for a while. I can't wait to take my boys back. Next time, we plan on trying the actual food, because it smelled delicious!More
