Highland Park Pharmacy Fountain
A Dallas tradition since 1912, this original old-fashioned soda fountain comes highly recommended. Sit on a barstool at the counter from yesterday. Located in a longtime corner pharmacy, this soda fountain is nostalgic in every way. There are newspaper articles all over one wall, showing the loyal patronage of this well-loved place. Sandwiches and burgers are the way to go. Kids will love the good old-fashioned Grilled Cheese Sandwich. The specialty here is the Hand-Dipped Chocolate Soda.
We visited Highland Park Fountain over Spring Break for a short getaway from San Antonio. When I found the place on Yahoo Travel, my family was really excited to visit since we love to check out ice cream shops and old soda fountains, it's just our thing! I have to say, their pimento cheese sandwich and tomato basil soup was absolutely delicious but that was about the only positive thing about our visit. The shakes and brownie sundae were mediocre (at best) and the hot dogs were a disappointment. We loved the old soda fountain set-up but disliked that when sitting at the bar, the dish washing sink is directly in front of you, yuke! Our waitress was just OK and $40 dollars later, that was our disappointing experience. This place needs to step up the quality of food and hire some people who enjoy working there. Everyone looked like they were totally depressed to be at work.
Everything was great. The customer service and food was excellent. No one can beat the grilled cheese sandwhiches and chocolate shakes. There is usually a line out the door on Saturdays, but the wait is WELL worth it. Can't wait to go back.
I have been a patron of the Highland Park Pharmacy Fountain for over a decade.. until today.
The weather today was really nice, and the traffic really heavy due to the Greenville Ave St Patty's Day Parade, so my boyfriend and I decided to walk to the Pharmacy for a quick bite to eat and some ice cream floats.
