    My husband and I are both in our seventies, and were quite familiar with Smack's from our childhood until they closed, which was after we were married. In our memories, Smack's never had carhops on rollerskates. The parking lot was shell, which didn't lend itself to skates. They did have carhops.

    P.S. They were famous for their "shoestring" french-fried potatoes.
