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.

I believe my mother was an overnight server there from the 1950’s until she get pregnant with me 1966. I’m #7 of 8 (all boys), not sure what happened around then, if my father could afford for her to quit, etc. She has been a “homemaker” since.
