Former Bus Station Turned Restaurant Makes You Feel at Home in Harrodsburg
When Lora White started leasing the Olde Bus Station in 1998, she could’ve never imagined the path it would lead her on 23 years later. After leasing for two years, White decided to purchase the building and business located at 227 S. Greenville Street in 2000, and has never looked back.
Known for their hand pattied burgers, their soft-serve banana ice cream and their small town vibe, The Olde Bus Station is one of Harrodsburg’s favorite restaurants. Originally, The Olde Bus Station was exactly what the name implies, a bus station.
Since owning it, White has made several upgrades, including adding a patio in 2008, which White said has been one of the best decisions she ever made. “I bought a 4-plex on the corner and tore it down. I had been in Hawaii a few years before and everyone ate outside. No one was eating outside here at that time. I thought it would be so cool to have a patio. It’s ended up being a great success.”
Whether it is my regulars or someone new, it is like having another family,” said White.
Lora’s Favorite Item on the Menu: “A good ole cheeseburger!”
