I used to jog at lunchtime with a group of local Lawrencians about 15 years ago. We all belonged to the YMCA and would meet there for runs around the city. Lawtons was a favorite destination. They had a door on either end of the building and we would charge through the place entering one door, yell some hot dog orders and run out the other door. Always would get a laugh. But seriously, when not jogging and when I was in need of a quick American ball park lunch I would head there. It's a gem and part of a Lawrence history slowly fading away.
