That story brings me back to my days of growing up on LI!! I used to get them at diners, or my Mom would make them at home! I moved down South a few years ago... Eggcreams don't exist down here. There isn't even a real diner where I am now. Thanks for sharing this! I will definitely be making it for my deprived Southern friends soon =D

Seriously good story!! I was going along thinking: yeah, orange roof; yeah clam strips (no bellies at HoJos); yeah, top split bun... And then you GOT me!

LMAO!! We also had a HoJos and their clam dinners...and do you remember their clam chowder in the 2 part can? But we were so far away from suburbia...we had to go to the edge of town to get that treat!
Haha yes, now that you bring it up, I DO remember, with the clams in one part! Now all I have to do is find some of those classic HoJos fountain glasses ...

Kicked up, indeed! Egg creams were my husband's favorite drink. Lovely!
What I never quite understood was why they never caught on west of, well, Buffalo. Thanks!

This sounds wonderful! I sure understand the NY egg cream thing...you don't find them here in the Midwest. BTW our all you can eat fried clams at HoJos was Wednesday night (and no egg cream).
See what other Food52ers are saying.
