    This thread also reminded me of something else.

    Woolsworth at the mall had a mini-diner in their department store.

    It seemed normal at the time for them to serve hot food, but now it seems strange.

    They were not a stand alone restaurant and they were not a fast food restaurant that belonged in the food court, how could it exist?

    Maybe I watched Mallrats too much.

    It was anything goes in the past, there weren't so many labels and categories.

    Last year...

    Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher's daughter, had top screen credit for Rise of Skywalker on the Kiosk at Cinemark...

    K-Marts around here at least used to have dine in cafes/restaurants, but as I recall, you used to be able to get the food to go too. We had their broasted chicken a few times... And by their Icee machine, they used to have an open air fridge where they would sell ham sandwiches-They'd sell them in a long tubular bag, four sandwiches per bag IIRC.

    ^--- My local K-mart's diner was loaded with "little old ladies"

    Even as a cocky 18 year old I would always leave a nice tip for them
    Food was always great and service was nice --- with a smile

    Loved the K-Mart and Woolworth eateries. Still went to the K-Mart one until they closed the diner section when I was in my early 20ís. Still remember brown tables and orange chairs.

    My local K-mart diner was still open as recently as 2010-ish

    Had a side door entrance so you didn't need to enter through the store.

    Good food and good people

    My overriding memory of the K-Mart eateries was the smell of freshly popped popcorn as everyone I went to had a popcorn machine. You could smell it in the store several aisles away before you even saw the eatery space.

    Most of the K-Mart diners around here were replaced with Little Cesar's. I'm sure I've talked about this before,the Newberry's in Cooperstown was the same way. Had both a counter and booths. They had the drink machines too.
