Falb's Restaurant is one of the last of its kind.

The old lunch-style counter, which was geared toward serving on-the-go factory workers with short lunch breaks, serves its food cafeteria style. It's ready to be eaten in minutes, and customers can add their own toppings like onions, horseradish and more.

>>Classic Dayton restaurants you have to try and love

Here are five reasons you should visit:

1.) It's a true Dayton Original. It's been owned by the same family for three generations.

2.) The food is fresh and homemade. It includes hearty staples like meatloaf, polish sausage, pork tenderloin, soups and sloppy joes.

3.) There's a bar. It's not fancy, but beers and high-balls are the standard.
