Thank you to Mark Crepp and Ernie Young for sending me this picture that was published in the Ellwood City Ledger and republished in the same paper December 5th 2012 as a part of the “Ellwood City Looking Back” series. There were a number of homes and businesses along Ellwood-Zelienople Road and South Second Street that were torn to build the new four lane highway. One of the most commonly recalled is Easy’s Twin Kiss.
Do you remember Easy’s Twin Kiss, located a little north and on the opposite side of the road as the old North Star School? Easy’s Twin Kiss was a classic drive-up on Ellwood-Zelienople Road that served hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, pulled pork barbeque sandwiches, steak sandwich, homemade soup, and more. People remember going there just for the delicious ice cream, milkshakes, and of course the famous Big Kiss Sundae.
Yes, they had good food, yes they had good ice cream, but you can not mention Easy’s Twin Kiss without mentioning their famous home-made root-beer. Easy’s served their root-beer in large thick heavy frozen glass mugs. The mugs were so nice that they had a difficult time getting the mugs back after someone ordered a root-beer.
If you remember Easy’s Twin Kiss and would like to share your memories of the old drive-up, please leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
