Me. Was in elementary school (Margaret Morrison), though.
Got my hair cut in the shop on the corner (owner became Mr. Knickerbocker).

and be back pronto with correct order & change!

Also, Dan would give credit when needed.

They put too much mayo on bun for me.

Oh, was back at Clemson in 1962-66 married & living in pre-fab house above what’s baseball park venue and Dan’s was still going I believe even though had bad kitchen fire and served burgers at outside seating on sidewalk.

Great Guy & big Tiger!!

After a "good night" of cards, I frequented Dan's for his famous steak for 2. And of course
I did Dan's duty when I was a rat. Go Tigers.

In 1967 the football schedule was painted on Dan's outside back wall where there was a service station next door. The painting showed opponent, date, home (away), and ticket price. As I recall it was $6, $6, $6,... 9 times and last game (USC) was 7 bucks. Wish I had a picture.

That’s where “Mac” got his start; right? We’re also old enough to remember when “Mac’s” was in the old trolley car.

Dans? I remember the Clemson Cafe that was there before Dans. Then there was Dans, Dans expanded, then Dans with the Basement room and a rear door. And the Klutz Steak House (Dan's FIL).

I remember going with my grandparents to eat at Dan's before the 1:00 kickoff of the football game back in the early 60's.

I loved their burgers in the early 60"s, and if I remember correctly they were only 25 or 35 cents.

Remember it well. Some of the upper classmen would let me go to the canteen on the quad but most wanted Dan's.

Dan's had all of the athletes pictures on the wall. A friend of mine was going through the line naming the pictures and someone bet him that he could find one he couldn't name. The guy went way back down the wall and picked a baseball player. My friend looked at it and said,"Charlie Mimms, Elliott, SC! He is my cousin!" Bet won.

Back in “my day” going to Dans on a Sunday evening was a ritual that I truly enjoyed. Dans had the ONLY TV in town so I would go there to watch Bonanza! Can you believe there was not a single television on campus? Late in my last year they put a black and white tv in one of the old study halls near the loggia.

one other place that ran a close second, located just out of Clemson across the 76 bridge. Can't remember its name, but I loved their fried chicken meals, eating there when I could afford it.

I think I ate one every night my junior year when the meal plan wasn't required for the first time. Mustard, chili and onions! Wish I had one about now.

First trip to Clemson was in ‘89.
Was Dan’s where Acropolis was in the 90’s, or TDs or the the Subway?
Just trying to get my bearings-things have changed so much over the years.

Dan's and the Study Hall, too! Remember taking a Dan's cheeseburger and fries into the Friday night late show at the Clemson Theater. Good times!

How many remember when the Walhalla steakhouse on Sunday served a steak that covered a whole platter...not thick and an unidentifiable cut of beef (think they cut their own) with all the fixing for $4.95 which was great but this Ole house beat them hands down serving cafeteria style...went one night with a bunch of tigers and they brought out a whole fried rabbit, cut up just to let us try it!

When I was 12 or 13 I could go to a Clemson game with a dollar in my pocket, go by Dan's for a burger and a coke, and go to the game for $.50. As a student, I ate at Dan's all the time. There was no bigger Clemson fan than Dan Gentry.

Also did my share of trips to Dan's for upperclassmen when I was a rat!

From '62-'66, most weekday nights at 11:00 would find me there through Johnny Carson's monologue. Great place! Many good memories.
