Celine Kay remembers going on dates in the late 1950s in Harlan, Iowa. Teens would stop at Mickel's on the south side of town, where waitresses would skate out to the cars and take orders.
Years later, as a nurse at Myrtue Memorial Hospital next door to the restaurant, Kay would direct families of surgery patients over to Mickel's for a hamburger or a “greasy roll.”
