Keedy's Fountain & Grill Restaurant Review

: This desert landmark is just a platinum card-toss from the tony El Paseo shopping district; yet, there is nothing remotely fancy about Keedy’s Fountain & Grill. That’s probably why it’s so popular with locals, and it has been serving breakfast and lunch to desert dwellers since 1957. The décor is simple: a real soda fountain with a Formica counter and a smattering of tables and booths. There’s a constant hum of blenders, too, coupled with a menu of classic comfort food. Breakfast offers traditional omelets and fluffy pancakes with crêpes being the wild card. Lunch includes thick burgers, club sandwiches and favorites like the BLT. Modern-day soda jerks hand-scoop ice cream into silver cups, add milk and place them under a machine that blends it all together, enhancing with a hint of malt and real whipped cream. A trip to Keedy’s is comparable to culinary time travel, proving good food transcends age and eras.
