I go to Autozone in Huntington when I need to buy oil and filters for my car. I go in, tell the guy at the counter what year my car is and he helps me get exactly what I need for someone to change my oil and filters. The workers are always friendly and they do not make me feel stupid because I do not always remember what all I need once I get there.
The Marathon A & A Quick Stop convenience store and gas station has a great location. They are on the North end of town, near many shopping places. The location makes it very convenient to stop there. They have really good butterfinger cappuccino and hot chocolate and a frequent buyer program for them. The fountain soft drinks are all the same price, gas is always at or below the average price in town and the people who run the store are very friendly.
The Pizza Hut location in the Village at Coventry offers an Italian Bistro that includes pasta dishes such as their awesome pasta alfredo. This restaurant is always packed, but that is due to its location being so central to a lot of shopping areas and major highway intersections. The service is great, prices are reasonable and the salad bar is wonderful.
The Hoosier Drive In on Etna Avenue is a great place to get all sorts of wonderful food. The tenderloins and their great onion rings are the menu stars. The onion rings are made from real onions, not the minced kind. The breading is just right, and everything is always hot when you get it. There is not a dining area in this location, but they do offer bench seats for wait times. Everything is cooked to order. They also offer milk shakes that are thick and richly flavored.
I love the food choices at Kentucky Fried Chicken. This particular location offers fast service, friendly employees, a clean environment and fresh food. The chicken is always moist and tender, never over-cooked. The gizzards and macaroni and cheese are wonderful. The green beans always taste fresh, with a nice blend of flavor cooked into them. The honey barbecue chicken is delicious.
The Burger King location in Huntington is just awful. The food all tastes like it has been burned. The teenage managers do not seem to be very well trained and the employees are so worried about their drive-thru timer that they neglect to really take care of their drive thru customers. There is almost always a long wait to get whatever you order, no matter how simple it is. I would not recommend this location to anyone.
My friends and I love Coffee Divine! We can go through the drive-thru before classes to get a great coffee or other hot drinks. The passion fruit and pineapple smoothies are just fabulous! They also offer live entertainment that is separated from the reading area, as to not bother those who want to read. There even have games available. There is enough seating to allow space for everyone, which is nice to know you will always have a place to sit.
My friends and I love to go to Starbucks. They have wonderful frozen coffee drinks, rich hot chocolate and absolutely fabulous cappuccino. I have never enjoyed a coffee drink so much. The french vanilla flavors are my favorite, but I am always trying something new to take advantage of all the varieties that they offer. It might be a little expensive, but it is a nice treat and well worth the cost.
I have found that anytime I need something from Walgreens, I can find it in stock at the Jefferson Blvd location. If I need make-up, they have the right brand, shades, colors and many times it is on sale at a great price. They also carry the prepaid cellular phone cards that I use in the amounts that I want to purchase. This location is convenient for me, as it is just off the highway on my way to or from work.
I know that when I walk into the Huntington Walgreens location, I am going to find what I am looking for. I can find just the right make-up to fill my needs, in all the right brands and usually on sale. I love the variety of prepaid cellular phone cards that they offer. They carry all the regular brand names as well as a "universal" card that works with a number of prepaid cellular services. I like that I can choose what amount I want to pay and they always have that card in stock when I need it.
