I remember The Dog House chain in the 60's. There was one on the Sunset Strip, next to a Union 76 station. It's was torn down in the early 70's when the station expanded. I also remember The Hot Dog Show in Toluca Lake (Burbank)... not sure if it's still there or not. Last time I was back I did go to Tommy's in N. Hollywood for pastrami dips.

Generations of asses have been on those stools. I want to go there just because of the name and the look of the place.

Not to mention Sarahkate approves of the food.

Theatregal, there was a Dog House in Santa Monica, on 3rd and Wilshire, across the street from the north end of the Old Santa Monica Mall (now 3rd Street Promenade), back in the early to mid 70's.

Me too, we will be spending a few days in So Ca next April. One of our reasons for going a few days prior to our cruise is to re-visit many of our old dining, stamping grounds.Maybe I will add this to my growing list. Of course if I don't watch out, I will gain so much weight the first few days, I won't be able to get on the ship..

It looks similar to Uncle Bill's in Manhattan Beach, where I haven't been in eons. The world's best pancakes and omelettes!
(Just found this link: Uncle Bill's Pancake House. I don't recall them having a patio the last time I was there, sometime in the late 1980's.)

It's nice to have at least one place from your past still be in business. I my case it's El Patio Mexican Restaurant in Capistrano Beach. Still in the same building since 1953, and owned by the same family serving the same food.
I first ate there in 1960.

Another one is Randy's Donuts in Inglewood. Although it was called The Big Donut back when I was a kid, and was owned by someone else, the current owners kept the place exactly like it's always been and they know how to crank out good doughnuts.

Then there's Clifton's on Broadway, Cielito Lindo, Philippe, Original Pantry.... I could go on.

Philippes will be one of our stops. When I was just a little kid and yes, I was little at one time, sometimes on Sun night, daddy would pick up sandwhiches for us and bring them home. Man, were they good..Another place I think is still around is the donut shop in Glendora..I can't remember the name of it. Of course Pantry and Cliftons has to be on the list. Too bad, places like Little Joes are gone.. We lived in Inglewood when we were first married, and I do remember the Big Donut.
