There was a drive-in restaurant we used to go to in the early 1950's, near Iroquois Park (on New Cut Road?), called the Ranch House. Bob Colglazier owned it; it seems to me the menu was very similar to what Frisch's offers now. As I recall, the Parkside was in the same area.

There was a Ranch House on Preston Hwy. I believe it was on the corner at Phillips lane where the Value City store parking lot is now.

Wasn't there a hamburger joint in Louisville called Triple Triangle?

BTW, I ate at Frisch's just last night. Not good.

Frisch's isn't as good as it once was, at least not in SW Ohio.

[quote=locean;11606250]Wow! Y'all have reminded me of a lot of forgotten places. I thought of a few more that have disappeared. (Hope I haven't duplicated any.)

Rax Restaurant
Annabelle's Restaurant
Banquet Table
Rose's
Ghost Town
Winn Dixie
Drug Emporium
Taylor's

===========

Steiden's? Bought out by Winn-Dixie, maybe in the 1950's.

Do you remember which politician owned the "Hikes Point" (McMahan Plaza), Druther's on Breckenridge Lane? It was a Burger Queen at one time.
I worked there in 1979-80 and remember: "for every election sign brought in by a customer (when the campaign was over) we gave them a free reg. hamburger.
Those were the good old days. I bet now there would be a major audit by the IRS

Oh Lord yes, I well remember ayr-Way (now Target), and it was first Westland Mall, now Park Place.

that Jesus sign has been around since the early 70's actually. I remember it from when I was very young. There was a little church juuuust up the road from it. I always assumed there was some connection....

Oh man, i used to LOVE Drug Emporium. I was SO MAD when I moved back to Louisville from TN and found out they'd closed it!!! Nobody could really say for sure why. I have yet to find any place that is equivalent or better.

Erhler's ice cream was a great place too.
Wow, you just read my mind! hahaha

Bacon's was a staple when I was growing up. We frequented the one on Dixie. I was quite disgusted when Dillard's bought it--never liked Dillard's--and wasn't all that surprised when it went out of business.

I went to the Troubador once for a "teen night" mixer thing. I was only 13, and it was the highlight of that school year for me. We had so much fun. never did the Toy Tiger; my step brother did, and from what he told me it sounded like a "meat market" kind of place.......

Erhler's--you can still find their ice cream here and there around the area. The last place I bought any was from a little pie & cake shop on Dixie just past Johnsontown Road on the right. I always felt disloyal whenever I had to go to White Mountain Creamery!
