Restaurants of yesteryear

What Restaurants did you grow up around? I'm not talking super fancy and yes fast-food counts. What distinctive memories do you associate with them?

Mine?

Taco Via-(the lit up menu of the various taco plates displayed on the wall), WhiteCastle-On a paper plate with fries and Pepsi, Arthur Trachers(off Noland), Tippins(off Noland), Perkins(the free toy well), Country Deli(awesome local deli to Blue Springs heated sandwiches on Sourdough buns), Zarda BBQ and Dairy, FunHouse Pizza(of Course)(Dark. Video- Games,Electonic Riding Bull and 25-cent Taco night) Annes Sante Fe.

Keep in mind I never see these anymore living in Georgia.

The closest restaurant to my family's house in KC is the Gates and Son on Swope Pkwy and the Paseo, down the hill from Paseo High. I remember it as a place that was open very late, with great food, free coffee and a big mural of a bigeyed cow. I also remember Mr. Gates as being a generous and kind man to the kids in the neighborhood. I vaguely remember that there was some sort of snack shop at the same site before Gates came along, back around 1970 or so.

P.S. Gates has since moved a little bit to the west, following a dramatic remodeling of Brush Creek and the streets around there.

I would go to Burger Chef when I was in college and eat lunch for $1.00.



I used to also love the burgers at Peter Pan in Pittsburg, KS. I didn't realize until a few years ago, that Peter Pan restaurants morphed into Braums.

Braums / Peter Pan

I didn't know that. I guess that's why they tore down our Burger Chef and built a Hardees.... which is now a Burger King.

I'm not sure why, but the whole "Burger Chef and Jeff" ad theme really rankled me. There was something about it that I really didn't like, though I can't put my finger on it.

Can you be nostalgic about somethings that's only been gone a couple of years?
If so, I miss Casa Gallardo Grill at the Galleria every time I get a jonze for really really good Tex-Mex.
Fuggin' Urban Outfitters.

Good Lord, I'd forgotten all about that commercial.

Rax's sammiches were decent, but their salad/hot food bar was great.
A smaller version of your typical Ponderosa/Golden Corral spread in a FF setting, but with better fare and tighter quality control.

Spanish Gardens in Mission. Great greasy TexMex food. They closed the restaurant and just make chips/tortillas now

The Streetcar named Desire @ 49th and Main, KCMO. Best bluecheese burger I ever had. They moved the old streetcar to Crown Center, but the burgers never tasted the same.

Mom's Diner on Sante Fe in Olathe.

Vista Burger in Lawrence/Manhattan/Emporia.

I was actually just thinking about Griff's. For some reason, my sister really liked that place, and I preferred McDonald's. I viewed Griff's thick rippled french fries as a waste of french-fry potential. So any time my parents wanted to go to fast food, my sister would lobby for Griff's and I would lobby for a) McDonald's or b) anywhere other than Griff's.
