7, The gas station on the corner of Pershing and goldenrod . But I remembered a restaurant in that vicinity where you could get a good little steak as well. I recall the first Burger Chef in our community was built on the south side of Curry Ford Road, close to where Krystal's is now located; it was the summer after 8th grade, and I went there with a guy I was seeing who lived in my neighborhood.
Before 7-11 Unknown Unknown A&W Drive-In - W Colonial in Pine Hills A&W on Fairbanks, remember when it was "raided" by Tanner Aaron's Furniture abc bars with rotating floors Abneys Music Store - Need some Peavey gear? One of the last times I remember going to Royal Castle on Curry Ford was in October of 1969 - went there with a bunch of people with the munchies. and Boston Lobster House on Aloma had THE best fish and chips.

As a kid, you could easily wander in there and learn about getting your jollies while mommy was busy in the romantic comedy section. They put lights up on every single branch and a lighted Santa or two. Alhambra Golf Course All American Roller Rink - West 436 in Altamonte Springs. it was 1985 and they brought in all of these fair rides and vendors... It felt so boring to live in Maitland, with nothing much to do than chase the ducks and watch out for the supposed gators and water moccasins around Lake Lily, so that Saturday afternoon spent on the fair rides were the best!
STEREO Ronnie's - My Grandma was a waitress @ Ronnie's and always had a lot of good stories to tell about it. The owners were from Afghanistan and were so kind and ran such a good business. Restaurant\bar\nightclub - It was right by the Orlando Executive Airport, behind the library kinda. I went to Xanadu, met Vanilla Ice at Peaches and had a bday party at Mystery Fun House. And before Burger Chef, there was Royal Castle....burgers were small, so you ordered several, along with an order of root beer.
Just south of Colonial Drive on OBT Denny's near the malls and downtown is now gone. 3 Sons laundromat on Edgewater -- it was next to Publix before they expanded. And at Kit Kat Club you'd get a free beer glass on your birthday, sniff, sniff....
