Kolton Chastain, 9, and Chase McCrocklin, 10, both like the cheeseburgers.
Jordyn McCrocklin, 6, likes the ham and cheese sandwich.
Eddie Knierim opened Eddie's Sandwich Shoppe Jan. 21, 1931.
Since the opening 80 years ago, the restaurant has become a staple for Clay County residents as they find themselves stopping by the diner to order up a few cheeseburgers, take in the décor and more.
"It's my favorite place to go," Chase said, adding he thought it was "cool" the restaurant had been open for 80 years.
"I figured it had been open 50-60 years at the most," Jared Chastain added as he and his family munched on some hamburgers.
Current owner Kelly McGinty honored the restaurant's heritage Saturday by serving up single-size sandwiches for 80 cents.
The result? A steady crowd coming in throughout the day.
Eddie Knierim's son, Bob, even paid a visit, staying most of the afternoon. Bob also brought a book full of memories to share with those who came to the restaurant Saturday, as well as current and former employees.
Catherine Raab worked for Bob for about 17 years. She also stayed on after he let go of the restaurant.
She spent her afternoon sitting at a table with Bob inside the diner.
"I enjoyed (working at Eddie's)," Raab said. "I used to come in when I was a kid."
Inside the treasured memory book, Bob had pictures of the opening, a list of employees and more. He also had a picture of the restaurant's 50-year anniversary with him in front.
"I still have that shirt," Bob said.
Bob also brought his father's original business ledger to show to McGinty.
As many visited Eddie's Saturday to purchase a few burgers, all appeared satisfied.
"We hope it's around another 80 years," Jackie Chastain said. "We didn't realize it was that old."
