It was both, restaurant with take out, bar and lounge, plus liquor store. It was much like Ripp in Bowie or a good many family restaurants (with liquor store side businesses) along Southern Maryland Road In its heyday, it was very popular on Sundays with church going families and with military from nearby Andrews AFB. You have to understand the county was much different and far more civilized 30 40 yrs ago, but then much of the country set a different social tone then.

I remember as a kid in the 1960s they had older waitresses, we often got who must have been every bit of 70 years old and was still fast on her feet. They used to fill the back dining room on Sundays with people still in their church clothes. There were tropical fish tanks in the front dining room (which had a diner booth atmosphere) to amuse the kids till their lunch arrived. Kids could get Temple drinks, which were a treat. Real mints in a dish at the check out counter. It seemed to go downhill after the original owners son (Blair Tucker) sold the place and moved to Florida.

Went to Univ of Md so I became familiar with College Park, , Univ Park, Hyattsville, Greenbelt, Beltsville and the charms of Route One. I always enjoyed my years in the County including a several more years after college before work and love took me across the Potomac. There was a lefty steakhouse near campus, the cedar post clothing store, little professors bookshp. Greenbelt had a great steakhouse and a Chesapeake Bay seafood restaurant popular with hungry college kids. The greenbelt mall itself was a hoot. We used to laugh at the generic signage. Store. Oh, and the concerts at Largo! Saw Bruce Springsteen there. I regret not knowing the more rural areas back then. About the most I saw of PG farms was driving on Rte 50 To and fro the Bay Bridge. Never ever saw a tobacco barn or the southern part of the county. It is a shame so much low life has settled there. I grew up around conservative law abiding blacks so I am sure PG old timers, black and white alike, were unhappy with the deterioration. Briefly dated a girl who lived inside the Bway across from Andrews. I may trek over to UMCP this summer. Wonder if the campus ice cream shop is still by Rte One?good concerts at Cole and Ritchie also. Queen was utterly awesome at Cole Field House.
