A great place for families with all the soda fountain treats. Their ROOT BEER is to die for, mixed fresh each time from syrup like the olden days! Very nice salad bar, local memorabilia included in the interior of now defunct Urbana newspaper building. Kids and adults alike want to try their hand at the mechanical claw machine to get a prize. The burgers here are great as well as the homemade daily soups. Friendly staff, owner Allen Strong is often on site and takes an on going interest in his operation of this restaurant and the more upscale SILVERCREEK.

this is a good restaurant in downtown Urbana. The menu is extensive and everything i have ever eaten at The CourierI love. Skinny Dippers are very tasty and the have the very best Chicken and Noddle soup when it is the soup of the day. The salad bar is very good. Ice Cream and shakes are fabulous.

Went for breakfast, had corned beef hash and eggs. Cooked to perfection. Coffee was great (which means a lot), and the staff was great! Will definitely return.

Wife and I visited on a cold evening around 6. It was quiet and our party of 4 was seated immediately. The Courier Burger is always a favourite at our table and the trip to the salad bar. The milkshakes are great and could easily fill 2 people. Service was good, we stayed a good hour or so chatting and never got any evil looks! They are able to accomodate people with allergies.
