More Dan’s Sandwich Shop
(Photo Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a few more of Clemson's old mainstay....Dan’s Sandwich Shop.
Dan’s Sandwich Shop may best be known for the pictures that adorned the walls of the restaurant. Clemson athletes, especially football players, made it to the “big time” if Dan would place their photo on the wall in the restaurant. You can see in the above photo all of the pictures that are on the walls.
This cleared the way for The Bookstore, which featured a live deejay for the disco era in downtown Clemson. Students could honestly tell their parents that they were spending time at the bookstore! When The Bookstore closed, the place was remodeled into Strawberry's Restaurant, which stayed in business for several years in the early to mid 1980's.
In 1986 and part of 1987 it was a bar/restaurant called Lester's Burgers & Spirits. Finally, the location became TD's, opening July 1, 1988.
