Watson Drugs and Soda Fountain

116 E. Chapman Ave. Orange, CA 92866 | Orange | 714-633-1050

Location Description:

Oldest drugstore (and probably diner) in OC-100 years and running. Real diner atmosphere, with counter dining and lots of burgers. Tom Hanks used it for That Thing You Do! Only place I know of where you can fill a Prozac prescription, buy Preparation H, eat a pastrami melt and read The New York Times in one sitting.
