The old Drug Store was first opened in 1913, inside Hotel Limpia, as a gathering spot for citizens to get their newspapers, visit the doctor, pick up their medicines and grab a fountain drink. In July 1942, Mr. and Mrs. C.R. Fryar purchased the Drug Store from Dr. and Mrs. Eaton, and in 1950 they relocated the business across the street to the building it resides in today.
By the early 1980s, the Drug Store had seen a new set of owners and additions onto the building for a hotel space. No longer having a doctor in residency, the Drug Store changed into a full-service restaurant and hotel, keeping it's 22-foot old-fashioned soda fountain.
Today, the Fort Davis Drug Store is owned and operated by Jennifer and Richard Harrod who purchased it in June of 2019.

Blue Plate Specials
Just like Jennifer's mom always made it, our meatloaf is made from scratch every Tuesday with all beef ground meat, onions, peppers and celery plus some secret ingredients for a dish that feels like home. Served with mashed potatoes and a veggie of the day plus your tea or water for just $9.99, it's a local favorite.
Once a month, usually the first Wednesday barring a holiday that interferes, the Drug Store hosts a ping pong tournament for locals and visitors if you are lucky enough to be in town. 8 doubles teams play for a trophy, gift cards and bragging rights. Check our FB page for details.
