  1. 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?

    1. Updated exterior shell over original. Now owned by family also owning Michael’s at junction of 422 & 662.

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

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

    1. 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.
