Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.

It has been a long time since I’ve been there but they used to have great food. Did they cover the original diner with an updated exterior or remove it?

Kempton Inn up near Kutztown had great PA Dutch food. Maybe the best in Berks County. Not sure if that is still there specialty.

Wasn’t there a Moore’s diner in Muhlenberg in the 70s, possibly on 61 and Bellevue Ave?

I believe Moore’s was across the street from the bowling alley.

I believe Moore’s was across the street from the bowling alley but that was 5th street. Really testing my memory!!!

I believe you are thinking of the Bellevue Diner on 222 and Bellevue Ave. That was across the street (Bellevue Ave) from a bowling alley.
