“Old Time Soda Shop”

The Linger Longer Soda Fountain & Sandwich Shop
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Bennington
Price range: $1 - $7
Description: "Step back in time" to experience our authentic soda fountain - one of the few remaining. Continuing tradition, we're in the original 106-year-old building with a beautiful tin ceiling. We still use the same soda fountain and back-bar. Hand-mixing fountain drinks with spigots and pumps allows patrons to experience old-fashioned deliciousness. After enjoying dessert or a sandwich, browse our collection of over 2,000 Dr Pepper collectibles and antiques. It is the second largest public collection in the United States! Plan on having time to play pinball etc. in our extensive game room or relax in the outdoor courtyard. And don't forget to try the Green River!

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 Stations

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.

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.

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!
