Visited Olmos Pharmacy after hearing great comments about their malts and shakes and I 100% agree with them after having tried the Girl Scout Cookie Shake. However, the food is not. The spicy fried pickles came in a puddle of oil and our Chicken Fried Chicken was not cooked all the way. It is unfortunate because I can see the... More

We happened upon this place as it's just around the corner from our holiday rental apartment. At first we thought it was just for breakfast, and the breakfast is good if you're up to eating American style. I ordered just one pancake as I had to have my fix of pancake, bacon and maple syrup (it has to be done... More

We went to the Olmos Pharmacy for a great Sunday morning breakfast. The atmosphere is old fashioned and the people are really friendly. We had the Davy Crockett plate breakfast. Order that if you are starving. I had the Rx Breakfast. The bacon was perfect. The pancake sliders were awesome. The had bacon, ham, and sausage in a pancake sandwich.... More

I do not live in SA, but visit there quite often. Another family member told me I would enjoy the Olmos Pharmacy (Its really a 1950's era dinner). I am 74 years old, and lived in SA during the Vietnam Thing (USAF). I have always been interested in the history of the SA and having an evening meal in an... More

We stayed close by and when we passed by this place and saw that they served Community Coffee we had to stop by. This place did not disappoint. The food and coffee were excellent and very authentic. My kids got milkshakes and they were hand-spun which was great. We would surely return on our next stay.

The building is the coolest concept - looks like an old pharmacy just barely turned into a diner. Though the inside is in a bit of disrepair, if anything it added to the charm. My friend and I had a laid-back meal with really great fried pickles and solid burgers. My burger was cooked solidly through, though was still reasonably... More

Just came in for some huge, delicious shakes: Chocolate (we added PB to it - yum!), Vanilla with PB and Butterfinger pieces, and Orange Creamsicle (yum!). We were happy, happy, happy. We'll come back soon to try the diner food and even the night life!

Small diner that isn't used to crowds but handled a group of 12 very well. A small staff but service was good and food was excellent.

First of all, the name is Olmos Pharmacy - NOT Bharmacy! I assume the first reviewer made a typo and it has not been changed since! We made a point to visit Olmos for breakfast before heading out of town this morning. As the pictures show, it is a '50's style diner that is a fountain, pub and diner. I... More

This was our first meal of 2016! We walked in and found a large area for our party of (7) with no problem. Our waitress was AWESOME!! She had a great attitude and was full of energy on a day when most everyone is ready to take a nap. The food was straightforward diner style breakfast(s). Eggs, bacon/ham, biscuits/toast, potatoes,... More
