I was thinking yesterday about how much I missed Sani-Freeze in Auburn. "The Flush", as it was affectionately (and humorously) known by many, used to be located on Glenn Avenue across from the Baptist church downtown.
For those who did not have the joy of knowing Sani-Freeze, it was a small walk-up eatery where you could select from a variety of foods. Foot-long hotdogs were the hands-down favorite (especially when added their secret recipe chili) except when you were wanting ice cream. The Flush had it all, from upside-down banana splits to my favorite - the sundae that came in a cup with goopy and warm chocolate pooled in the bottom.
Since it was located only two blocks from campus, one could easily get there after an Auburn football victory and the traditional rolling of Toomers Corner. Of course, it was a fun tradition to go to Sani-Freeze even if Auburn didn't win. When I was a kid (and even older), Mom and Dad would sometimes go there to treat the family with a quick lunch or dinner.
Unfortunately, Sani-Freeze closed when the land it sat on was sold to build an AmSouth bank branch. And even more sad was that AmSouth location didn't last and that branch closed when AmSouth merged with Regions. Sani-Freeze was sacrificed for nothing.
