The facade outside is pretty unique in itself and you might find yourself staring at it before heading inside. a counter with flowers on it

We first visited Hildebrandt’s back in 2014 and I don’t believe we ever headed back until recently. We enjoyed the shop so I have no excuse for not heading back again sooner…a man sitting on a stool in front of a posterI’m pretty sure that we first heard about the diner due to its appearance on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. It just so happened, that during our recent visit, I was wearing my Pies -N- Thighs Guy Fieri t-shirt!a pair of denim jackets with ice cream on themHildebrandt’s swag hanging over the candy counter…

The Food:Hildebrandt’s offers a pretty wide selection from diner fare to Italian. There’s also a pretty big variety of soda fountain items and ice creams to choose from.

I’d definitely order it again.a bowl of soup on a plateThe soup of the day was Chicken Rice. Soup felt like a good item to try so we got a cup which we regretted right away. The soup was so good that Kim, Lucas and I wish we had ordered the bowl!a bowl of ice cream with spoonsHildebrandt’s ice cream is homemade. It was hard to pick a flavor so we got three scoops to share. We ordered vanilla, chocolate and cookies & cream along with hot fudge.

All of the flavors were awesome as was that delicious hot fudge!

Final Thoughts:

We definitely plan to head back to Hildebrandt’s again in the near future. (We definitely won’t wait another 8-9 years!)

The shop is like a trip back in time, the service is friendly and the food was awesome! I look forward to trying more items from the menu on upcoming visits.
