Biggs is long gone, the building was completely torn down and there is a Walmart superstore and they Target superstore there now. Also couple of more strip malls out in front. If you haven't been here for that long you would recognize anything. The other side of English Station Road between it and I-265. A huge development called Middletown Commons it has quite a few stores" as well as multiple restaurants, Texas roadhouse etc.

So it's been turned into a suburban wasteland. What a shame. Walmart and Texas Roadhouse!?!?!

There was a little ice cream/50s diner spot in the shopping center near the Krogers there. I can't remember the name for the life of me...

I love this thread, having lived in the South End near Taylor Blvd, grew up in J-town and have lived in Middletown since 1992. I loved Stewart’s too. My Mom worked there selling polyester pantsuits. The service was great. We would eat in the lunch counter in the basement. They had a Santa Claus and a shop where kids could buy little presents for their family. There was a steak restaurant on 4th Street where you could watch them flame broil the steaks-we never ate there. The Blue Boar and Frisch’s downtown had upstairs levels. We used to go to Kaelin’s for home cooking. There was a Hans bakery in Hikes Point that had the best apricot pastries. I remember going to the discos-Peter Outlaws, Toy Tiger, Admirall Benbow’s Inn and the lounge at the bowling alley near there-great band-Willie Dee. There was a small bar/restaurant across from Showcase sometime in the 70s and we all watched a big Ali fight, everyone cheering. In the 90’s singing on TARc buses going to Winterfest at Iroquois Park. Big slide at the Kmart parking lot Hikes Point. J-town 4 Theatres and J-town Lanes. What was the name of the bowling alley in Middletown where the East Government Center is now?

Also we used to walk to Mario’s Pizza on Patti Lane in J-town after the football games. Great pepperoni pizza! When I was younger we used to go out to eat just for special occasions so I remember some birthdays out-at Lil’ Abner’s and at the top of Stouffer’s Inn, now Hotel Louisville. I believe there was once a fancy restaurant I went to one time and the top of one of the bank high rise buildings downtown. What was the name of the restaurant that had roast chicken and a great salad bar-in DuPont? Very popular for a while. Also Daryl’s Restaurant on Bardstown Road at the Watterson. Someone earlier mentioned Rib Tavern-in Buechel-it was very popular back in its day.

Why not? I am just curious why people peace out of the city and have yet to see the massive progress the city has made since 2010?

It's really doing well!
