Whatever happened to soda fountains in drug stores? Soda fountains began to disappear in the 1960's, except in Downtown Alexandria! For decades, Sentry Drug & Grill in Downtown Alexandria has held its own in spite of newer drugstore chains.
A visit to Sentry Drug & Grill is like a hot toddy on a cold day, it gives you the warm fuzzies!
Sentry Drug & Grill offers delicious homemade comfort food that’s a big help when you drop in for relief of whatever ails you, or if you just decide to take a break from the Downtown streets of Alexandria. Sentry also offers a unique variety of Louisiana souvenirs and gift items ranging from popular "Our Name is Mud" ceramics, LSU items, beautiful handcrafted masks by Magnolia Masks, Cajun Jiggers, postcards and t-shirts. There are autographed copies of "For Molly", "The Return," "The Search for Shannon" and "Drink One to Me, Christian Bennett" by Cenla author Vicki Allen and Sentry Drug Stores pharmacist!
