All answers are alright, except "old place" This is THE cultural usage divide.
If you use "the same place' or " the last place" or "usual place", native English ...

Hi
Are you really sure about this?:)
Have you confirmed it with a native speaker that works in the field of English language?

I once said to my foreign teacher like"Let's meet at the old place."
He was laughing and said "the place is not old."
U know what I mean. Maybe I should not use OLD.

By the way, be there or be square, means 不见不散:)

You know the place, huh?

You know where to meet, huh?



This one is very good.

Hi, 848ice:

Here, you should not read it literally. Here're some more examples:

"You're still the same old guy."
"You haven't changed at all."

"It's still the same old place."
"This place is the same as it was before."

"Let's meet at the same old place."
"Let's meet at the same place as last time."

As I said, here "old" means "former; previous"

Hope it helps. And your opinion is also welcome.
