HIGHWAY 55 BURGERS, SHAKES & FRIES
Remember those 50's drive-ins that served the best burgers, fries and shakes you've ever had? Well, thankfully, you don't have to have that kind of memory today, because you can experience it "for real" at Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes and Fries, right on the corner of Third Avenue and Eighth Street! But be sure to park your car out on the street, because it's not a drive-in! Owner Erin Treacy, however, has decked out the joint in such 50's style, that you'll think you're eating at "Arnold's" on "The Happy Days!" Beyond burgers, shakes and fries, you'll find an extensive range of delicious menu items, sure to satisfy any palate or budget! So, be there or be square!
THE LOST HUNTINGTON ESCAPE ROOM
The LOST Escape Room, located at 300 C Eighth Street, next to The Market, is a fun, new, immersive entertainment concept. It is a real-life game designed for small groups of people. Your goal is simple: work together as a team, testing your wits and skills, to escape from a themed locked room. Each room has a storyline, and you are placed in the story. While the goal is simple, the game is challenging. Getting through the locked door will require finding clues, solving puzzles, cracking codes, and working together.
If you're looking for a fun activity for the family, a team-building exercise for your work colleagues, or a great outing for a church group, visit us at The Lost Huntington Escape Room!
DANG GOOD CINNAMON ROLLS & WAFFLES
OMG! You need to try these cinnamon rolls and waffles! They're so good, you'll be tempted to shout a cuss word! But, to keep it G-Rated, let's just say they're "DANG GOOD!" Owner Drew Hines (of Butter It Up!) opened DANG GOOD Cinnamon Rolls and Waffles in January of 2019, filling the last remaining spot in The Market. And visitors to The Market frequently get to witness Drew's bakers carefully making each batch of rolls by hand, and frosting them with gobs of delicious cream cheese icing. They don't take any shortcuts or hold back on any of the "good stuff" at DANG GOOD, so you'll be DANG GLAD to bite into one of these tasty morsels of Heaven when you get the chance!
