(40+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
The Milk Bottle Grocery, located at 2426 N. Classen Boulevard in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a grocery building with a large metal milk bottle atop its roof. The store was constructed in 1930, and the milk bottle was added in 1948. The bottle was designed to draw attention to the store, as the tall bottle would be visible to automobile traffic along Classen Boulevard, which was part of U.S. Route 66 at the time; it also served as an advertisement for the dairy industry. The store is also one of the few triangular buildings in Oklahoma City, as it occupies a corner lot in an area where Classen Boulevard cuts diagonally through the city's street grid. Due to its shape, the store was known as the Triangle Grocery from 1940 until 1948, when it became the Milk Bottle Grocery due to its new statue.The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 5, 1998. The Saigon Baguette, a Vietnamese sandwich restaurant, occupied the space for several years. In August 2014 it was announced that the building would be restored to its original appearance.

  • This is a unique building...but I think the last time milk bottles were a thing was 1951? You can't even go in the building, its a storage facility.  more »

  • A fun little diversion as we headed to the OKC Memorial. This is a classic style Route 66 roadside attraction. A tiny little triangular building on an island in the middle of the intersection that just makes you smile. We parked in the nearby Walgreen's parking lot to safely take pictures. If you walk over to building for a closer look, be careful of all the traffic.
  • Great prices and selection
  • it's just a building with some milk on its roof... it's not like it's got a cherry on top.
  • Restaurant Milk Bottle Grocery with his bottle of milk giant of this tiny and triangular Vietnamese restaurant 2426 n Classen Boulevard. This restaurant was built in red brick in 1930 and is only 107 m² in size. In 1998, he scored in the national register of historic sites of Route 66.
