Allen Reviews

1 review
It's as small as small town gets. Its a One light town with "Mom and Pop" shops everywhere you look. Its got nothing too exiting, but you get to know a lot of people, and it's right next to Hillsdale, which has way more stuff in it. So as small towns go, its not that bad, but it could use some major remodeling, and at least a gas station.
