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?

Ok, here's a restaurant question; years before food courts, does anyone remember the name of the sit down restaurant inside Fashion Fair?

We loved the Refectory! Near Blackstone and Shaw. It burned down twice as I remember. After the second time it did not reopen.
Also the Taco Shack in South Fresno was one of our favorites. Mr. B's Coffee Shop in Fig Garden Village is another. We just keep "remembering"!

Does anybody remember the chicken pie shop on Olive avenue? It just closed like last year but I remember growing up going there every Sunday after church with my grandma and grandpa. I really miss it now. I also remember sambo's breakfast restaurant and Olive Branch after hours parties. Anybody else remember?

@marciaf0904,

You asked: "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)."

It was Java Cafe.
