Marty uses the payphone at Lou's Cafe.

"The prices [behind the counter in Lou's Cafe] fascinated Marty so completely that he must have stared at them long enough to convince the counterman that he was undesirable. / "Whatever you're selling, kid, we don't want any," he said abruptly. / "I'm not selling anything," Marty replied. "I just want to use the telephone." "
—From Back to the Future by George Gipe (quote, page 86)
