Picturing the Past 50: Mystery dinerPosted Tuesday, March 2, 2010, at 7:40 AM
The Quick Snack from 1956. (T-G file photo)
A story in the T-G by staff writer/sports editor Red Bean (perfect name for someone writing about a restaurant!) said the diner was owned by Paul Brooks, 18, and Don Bautch, 19, and indicated they may not have originally been from Shelbyville.
Unfortunately, the story didn't mention the diner's location and I couldn't find any advertisements, which would likely have had an address.
I couldn't blow up the negative large enough to read prices or specific items on the menu but they apparently sold breakfast items and sandwiches and featured RC Cola.
Anyone heard of this place?
