If you're not looking for the Squeeze Inn, it's likely you'll drive right past the tiny drink shack and its barely visible sign. But once you make your way into this single-room lounge with checker-tiled floors and red vinyl seats, you'll never forget it. Set at the back of a wide-open lot, the one-time burger joint and husband hideout has been in operation since the late 1950s, serving up nothing fancy -- just beer and plain mixed drinks. A jukebox and a TV or two can be found in the clean and brightly lit establishment, but it's obvious that it's the conversation patrons come in for. The Squeeze Inn closed in October 2016 but new owners took over and reopened it in November 2017.
