Sister-in-law (25 years here) wanted to take us (from Texas) to lunch for Crown Candy Kitchen... her first time visit too. All the reviews about the Ginormous BLT are to be believed, lesser appetites should share. Chocoholics beware of candy display. Plenty of parking behind...More

I've wanted to eat at Crown Candy Kitchen for several years but hadn't had a chance. We arrived about 2pm and waited about 30 minutes in line (outside the building), but the wait was well worth it. The chocolate malt and BLT was huge and...More
