Dinner in Archbold

We really enjoyed our time in Archbold, Ohio. In addition to the Heritage Inn and Sauder Village, it is really a neat town. When we were there, we met a young couple from Florida. Archbold was their childhood home. They told us we needed to eat at Mom's Diner. A couple of others that we met also mentioned that we'd want to eat at Mom's. So we headed there for dinner Tuesday night. It was well worth the 1.5 mile drive!
It was a neat 50's diner with a jukebox. Of course I had to play a few songs. We even got to put a pin on the map - looks like we were the first people there from northwest Illinois! There were pins all over many states and from many countries.
This place was the real deal - I got the shake container with the rest of my shake! I ordered the Mom's Salad - I had to eat something healthy!

We still have one more place on our list of great places to eat in Archbold that we didn't get to try. It is always nice to have something to look forward to next time!


  1. Wow! That is so neat. You are just reminding me I need to start of list of things to do with the kids in VT this summer - an old fashioned ice cream parlor (similar to this restaurant I think) is a must in Stowe, along with Ben and Jerry's tour (given by one of my nieces), VT teddy bear factory, granite quarries, the capitol building, beaches, blueberry picking and raspberries or blackberries if they are ready at my sisters house....... I may need to stay longer!

  2. Sounds to me like your trip is going very well!! We're off to the Black Hills on Monday!

    1. We are having a great time! We are now in the Outer Banks with gorgeous weather. Have a wonderful, safe trip to the Black Hills. ~Jeanne
