When Glenna Hale steps into the All-American Diner at 902 West Highway 39, she sees a bit of American from the 1950s.
There's a poster for "The Long, Long Trailer," a Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz movie, another advertising Pepsi for five cents and one featuring a 1954 Ford pickup.
"I like it," Hale said of the decor. "It brings back memories. I like all the old pictures of pickups and that. It's cool."
It doesn't hurt that the food is good, too.
