History of our Building

Comforts of Home

For most of the twentieth century, the orange roof of the Howard Johnson Restaurant was a familiar and comforting sight along the great American roadside.

Finest Style

When this Lincoln Boulevard complex opened in late 1962 or early ’63, it was proclaimed to be “Oklahoma City’s finest and newest Motor Lodge and Restaurant.”

Modern Complex

This Lincoln Boulevard complex once featured 137 guest rooms and suites, conference facilities, a playground, Howard Johnson Restaurant and a service station.

Peak Growth

In 1965, the company’s sales reportedly exceeded all of the biggest fast food chains combined. The chain peaked with 929 restaurants in 1975. Eighteen in Oklahoma.

Renovation and Restoration

There were reports in 2003, that the inside of the building still had the original furniture and decor. But, a year later, the building was stripped and abandoned of original features. We purchased the Howard Johnson Restaurant in 2016. We have gutted, restored and reinvigorated this icon into a unique space for The Last Drop. We plan to open by the end of 2016 and hope you will join us in celebrating our grand opening. Stay tuned for the Grand Opening announcement.
