Julian Restaurants: 12 reviews and 17 photos
You look up the street in Julian, a small rural mountain town, and see yesterday. From the old fashioned Town Hall, the hotel in the center of town to that soda shop on the corner. Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by. Time to get back to today and go inside Miner's Diner. Yep, one miner who owned the diner, not named for gold miners. lol
This is the real deal soda jerk fountain location with sarsaparilla from the tap. You have gone back in time once inside with all the different memory signs and fixtures that take you back to the 1920's. Even the sodas and food are geared for the past with the only drawback being the prices are now. A little expensive for the food items and sodas but again it is dining as if it were the yesteryears. Next door in the same building through a doorway is a drugstore, but I don't believe they have drugs. lol A bit of fun to walk through. Miner's Diner is open from 8am till 5 pm.
Favorite Dish: A real old fashioned soda fountain poured coca cola to drink, along with a buffalo burger (the best) and french fries. Somehow, it makes you want to cry. Americana at it's best.
