Until someone shows up on your doorstep with a DeLorean, your options for going back in time are limited. For now, you can head to Maple and Motor. Between the old-school booths, the framed photos on the walls, and the beers and Coke bottles in coolers by the register, it’s an easy place to feel nostalgic. They serve great burgers, which you can only order pink or brown and come on a griddled bun, and a fried bologna sandwich that’s worth trying. Your toughest decision will be between a side of onion rings or the cheddar, bacon, and jalapeno tots. After you navigate that, finish with a milkshake - the ice cream is homemade.
