I would love a restaurant that serves shitty bowling alley/skating rink/arcade food.
"Nachos" in plastic trays that are just cheap tortilla chips, canned jalapenos, and a side of gross melted cheese, hot dogs from a roller, popcorn from a dirty popper, shitty frozen pizza cooked in a toaster oven, etc.
>>7036795 Me too anon. That smell when you first walk over to concession stand gives me biggest nostalgia boner. The skating ring always had these frozen pickle juice cubes and the nachos n cheese was always expensive as fuck and it still is!
>>7036887 Yea I forgot about the target one, I think it was a step up from Walmart but they still served that unique department store concession fare. We got a new Walmart and target, Walmart has shitty McDonald's and target has a Starbucks and pizza hut
In the late 70s through early 80s a lot of department stores had small restaurants or lunch counters. Kmart obviously, but it was more of a consession stand. Places like JCPenney had one that were like restaurants. Before the food courts, it was the only place to eat at the mall and if you were going to be there awhile it really hit the spot. I had my first reuben at one of those. I remember the waitresses were always wearing ladies business suits instead of the retarded heehaw dresses like the diner waitresses. It was extra advertising for the latest fashions available at the store.
Office buildings and hospitals all had them too, but they usually were not as good.
>>7036958 Was similar to this, but a lot more beige and all the windows were covered with those hanging venetian blinds like you see over patio doors in apartments now. I think this is a Sambo's, but either way, both were good. I just wish I was old enough at the time to enjoy all the other perks... It was raining drugs and pussy back then, no one could spell 'cholesterol' let alone know what it was. No one rode scooters, even Amish people smoked, gas was $0.22/gal, schwag was $20 for a large paper grocery bag full, and there wasn't any venereal diseases that a little penicillin couldn't knock out, and you could get that mail order.
