Walt Bodine ate here! (Really, he did)

It’s been a long, long time since anyone ordered a cheeseburger in this long-vacant building, on the southwest corner of Linwood Boulevard and Troost. But back when it was a Katz Drugstore, there used to be a snappy lunch counter. The structure, which dates back to the mid-1930s, still has some fabulous Art Deco details. Wouldn’t it make a great restaurant today?

This vacant location actually has a less interesting history than the land it stands on. Nearly a century ago, it was the site of the old Bodine’s All-Night Drugstore. That’s right, Walt’s dad.
