The one restaurant I really miss is House of Chen located in a former Lum's restaurant. (The building is gone now.)
It changed to Thai Kitchen for a while, but still had Chen's food on the menu.
I'm hoping someone opened a new restaurant that uses their recipes.
I grew up eating their food back when it was Lotus near Shivley Park and I'd love to eat one last meal of their food!

I was looking for information on Sunset East Tavern and found your note on this web site. You don't happen to know if there are any pictures or misc that still exist? I am looking for a picture of the sign or something for an anniversary present. That's where my husband and I met and I loved that bar. Many happy memories.

It was a People's Oil station. They sold and pumped gas but did not do mechanical work on cars.

O m'gosh! I think my brain is going to explode! Romar Gleeson!? People's gas station!? I couldn't have pulled those outta thin air if I had to! Has anyone mentioned the Luau Room, New Orleans House, Hassenauer's (sp?), Kaelin's or Lentini's?

Wade Swope- Louisville's first Toyota dealership.


Tinsley Motors was actually Louisville's first Toyota dealership. They started selling Toyota's around 1966. Wade Swope would later buy out that dealership and then they would be bought out by Oxmoor Toyota (Farmer Auto Group) around 1989.

Not sure about that. I'm 74, St X class of 1956 - many of the postings here are too new for me to remember (we moved away in July, '56) - still good to read them. Oh, and Winn-Dixie (at least the one on Woodlawn, in the Beechmont area) was originally a Steiden's Grocery; changed ownership in maybe the early 1950's.

Thanks for the memories)

It's never too late to come home! Louisville is attracting lots of retirees. Louisville is a completely different city than you remember, but in a good way
