It was on Tulare Street next to Mayfair Market, Sees Candy, and the Farmers Market others have mentioned. Never ate there. Our family shopped at Mayfair, and occasionally picked up some calzones in the Farmers Market.

In the mid to late 1950s there was Dee's Steak House on Van Ness. Strike a memory with anyone?

I remember the Chuckwagon Restaurant! We moved to Fresno in 1959 from Reno Nevada (another GREAT town to grow up in back then) and the first night we were in town we had dinner there. My sister Barb fell asleep in her chair slumped over in her mashed potatoes and gravy.

La Fonda Mexican Restaurant (as Al Radka would say, "you'll be fonda La Fonda!).

Mello Ice Cream shop. I'm not certain of the location, maybe near Roeding park. Al Radka would say at the end of the Mello commercial "Get Mello Fellow."
