This is a drug store with a food/ ice cream bar. It is like going back in time to a drug store with a soda fountain type atmosphere. The food is very good. I love the BLT that are awesome, but my husband has to have the burger. Ice cream is yum!

Think about the times that as a kid you visited the drugstore with its hamburger griddle where you could sit at the soda fountain and have a burger and a milkshake, This place is as close as you can get to those memories. My husband and I recently visited this drugstore and had burgers with a shake. I ordered the... More

What a treat to stop in at the Green Valley Drugs soda fountain/ sandwich counter! Though we've been coming here for several years, thought I would pass on another pleasant experience had recently. My partner and I decided to stop in for lunch while we were in the area last week. Sitting down at the soda counter made us both... More

This is a must visit for people who know about the 50's diners. It's setup like the old ice cream places in drug stores back in the day. Real milkshakes that will make you quit your diet. Hamburgers and fries are great - one of the best burgers in Hoover. Fun place - great for kids and grandparents especially!

Green Valley Drugs is one of the longest running businesses in Hoover, AL. The eat-at-the-counter restaurant is located inside the drug store. Great back-in-the-day ambiance. Parking is good. Their french fries are always hot. The grilled cheese sandwiches remind me of my grandmother's sandwiches, flat, hot and tasty. But the real draw for me are the hand scooped and prepped... More

Who knows how long any old-fashioned drugstore lunch counter is going to be around? Go to the Green Valley Drugs lunch counter at your first opportunity and get your tummy and nostalgia fix! The cheeseburgers are just like the best ones you had when you were a kid. There's just something about that seasoned grill taste that the more modern... More

The best burgers and super service! The bacon cheeseburger tastes like you just cooked it at home, only better! The French fries are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. The grilled pimento cheese was yum! If you walk out without a chocolate milkshake, you've messed up!

Every one should visit the Green Valley Drug Store and sit at the counter or their 4 booths and have lunch. Milk shakes made the old fashion way, bacon cheese burgers and fries cooked on their open griddle. Takes you back in time in a good way!

Sit at the counter or at one of 5 booths and have a "real" milkshake or malt plus to die for Bacon Cheesebugers or homemade pimentoe cheese sandwiches. Been in Hoover since the 1960's. Open for breakfast & lunch 6 days a week.

This place has a great staff and low turnover - I remembered faces from my first visit several years ago. I had the pimento cheeseburger with ketchup, mustard, lettuce and tomato (hold the onion), and it was SO good. I believe the tomato might have come from a local backyard garden. Already looking forward to my next visit!
