“a True american diner”
The Roy Ann Diner was established when Leroy Smith was 50 years old. He was born in Hilltown Township in 1903. After he married and while raising a family of two boys, Edward and David John, he was a teacher in the one-room schoolhouse where the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church on Hilltown Pike now stands. He also worked in the Prothonotary’s Office in Doylestown, but he always dreamed about owning a restaurant. He finally decided to follow his dream and go into the restaurant business with Butch Ruth at the R&S Diner in Hatfield, located where Peruzzi Toyota now stands. After being there for only a few years, He decided that he wanted his own place. So Leroy and Annie bought some land on Old Bethlehem Pike outside of Sellersville and set up the hot-dog stand. At this time there was no Route 309 Bypass and everybody, like truckers, who traveled between Allentown and Philadelphia, came past here. Annie and Leroy took in only $30 that first day and always said they were pretty happy with that. The matriarch of the family, and the cook at the diner, Annie (Beans) Smith, was born and raised in Souderton in 1906. The first items on the menu were Annie’s own and many menu items from the beginning remain on the menu today. The deviled crab cakes, and her famous rice pudding, as well as the soups are her recipes. We still to this day use the same recipe and methods that Annie did years ago.
