Win Schuler's Family Restaurants


WIN SCHULER'S three family restaurants along Highway 12

Greetings:
Sure it is as good as it looks, and they really put out the groceries here. You better be hungry when you stop here, for they know how to fetch out the feed bag. A dandy luncheon for less than a dollar and fire dimes, and a dinner with the most bountiful relish tray I have ever seen for two bucks and a half. Partner it is cheaper to eat here tan at home, and some beautiful scenery to look when you eat.
So Long,
