Some Restaurants I Remember

~
Pulling into the Mars Drive-in for a Lime Rickey. Ordering up a burger from the car hop at the A&W on Blackstone. Checking out the action at Bob's Big Boy. Your favorite grilled cheese sandwich at the Woolworths Counter. Don't forget loading up at Perry Boys Smorgy. What eats do you miss?

Did velvet turtle become spaghetti factory? What about the restaurants in Fig Garden? The Remington was a nice restaurant too. That family had many.

Anyone remember a place called DerChukalou? It was near Palm and Shields. Turned into La Boulingerie be for La B moved to fig garden. Dar Chuck had something called a Kona. Fried thing with spicy beef and potato in it. Delicious! I think it went out in the 80's.

Anyone remember The Bagel Basket and its 2 or 3 iterations? Struggling to remember what it was called after dark when Pat & Johnny would switch to fine dining at the Herndon & Blackstone location. Thanks!

In the 90s, does anyone remember the name of the cafe/restaurant next to Tower Theatre on Olive? All I can remember is that we hung out there in high school. I know it's not Irene's; this cafe was on Olive where the Theatre office/bar is currently.

And a restaurant I miss is Happy Steak, the one at Blackstone and Clinton (Starbucks is there now).
