“Home made pies and chicken-fried steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

I ate here twice during a recent 5-day stay in the area. It has a local vibe that I enjoyed greatly. I highly recommend the silk pie. A friend loved the milkshakes. The food is basic down home Texan and hard to beat. It feels miles away from chain experiences of restaurants like Chilli's or Cracker Barrel. If you're passing through and hungry, I'd stop here before going on to Alpine or Marfa.

“open once again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Old Drug Store has always been one of our favorite places with the soda fountain and quaint booths. We were glad to get back there again.

“Good Food and Fun Atmosphere”

We ate dinner at the Drug Store and it was the best hamburger I have ever had. It has an old fashioned soda fountain and Blue Bell Ice Cream.

“Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Didn't expect such a huge hamburger w/ fries at a reasonable price. One of the few places that still makes genuine malts.

“nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

stopped by on our way home. Good food, friendly but inattentive service. They could have been understaffed due to the holiday. 1/2 pound Burgers are so fresh they taste like they came from local cattle. Blue Bell ice cream, (mmmmm), along with house made pies, dsets and pasteries.
Cute Place. We will go there again.
