Don't have an answer to your question.

When did the A&W that was located at the northwest corner of Haley at Olive Street close?

I think your address may be wrong. According to a 1974 city directory A&W was located at 6025 Cale Real.

I could of sworn there was an A&W located on upper State by the 154 as well where they served you at your car window.

Fat fingers made Calle into Cale, sorry. It was at 4123 State in 1967.

There was an A&W at upper State, at what is now Palapa Mexican restaurant. It even had the large characters out front of mama, papa, and baby. They represented the three burger sizes.

A&W at that location no, but that used to be a Shakey's Pizza, it was pretty good

I believe it was where the gas station is now on the corner of Fairview and Hollister.

No gas station on the corner of Fairview & Hollister..... Maybe, you mean Calle Real & Fairview??

In 1969, there were two A&W Root Beer locations:

1) 6025 Calle Real (later became Rusty's)

2) 4123 State Street (later became Palapa)

@736: Besides the Mama Burger, Papa Burger and Baby Burger, A&W also had the Teen Burger, which was my favorite, but I was always embarrassed to order something with such a silly name. But I guess even Teen Burger sounded better than Yummy Burger, which you could get at Petersen's, where El Pollo Loco is now at State & Calle Laureles. God, I miss Petersen's!

I remember the A&W in the old Rusty's spot! They had the car hop with servers on skates. I love me a Rootbeer Float! Sure wish they would come back too. It's now going to be a Cajun Kitchen.

Wasn't that's DJs burgers or something like that in the 80's?

 

 COMMENT 763827 agree helpful negative off topic

@812, I think DJs burgers was around the corner where Taco Bell is.

@REX...Great burgers at Petersen's. I am sure my kids get tired of me calling out all of the good places we used to eat as kids....that are no longer around.

I wish I could have experienced the A&W car hop. I was too little to know then.

794 is correct.
827 is correct as well.
Anybody remember Texas burgers on De La Vina by the creek My grandpa lived there.
To an 8 year old kid the 1lb. burger on sliced sourdough looked surreal from my limited past experience.

Not to mention the five Foster Freeze locations:

1) 1924 Cliff Drive

2) 6023 Hollister

3) 305 W. Montecito

4) 732 N. Milpas St.

And the one on De la Vina between Alamar and Constance.

763827 - thanks for pointing out the taco bell was the DJ's location. I was curious and you answered it!

Petersen's Salsa Burger sounds good right about now. Along with a banana split and pineapple milk shake.

865 - Texas Burgers, on DeLaVina was next to a small market on its north side named "Minute Market," DeLaVina at Vernon, not sure. There was a trailer park nearby at the south side.

The very best burger/fries combo could be had at Linker's Drive-In across the street from the Granada. They had a second place on upper State near Whole Foods (which used to be a bowling alley) way back when. Anyone know the name of the place that had kiddie rides between State and Modoc...I believe there is a mobile home park there now.

 

 COMMENT 763943 agree helpful negative off topic

2017-03-16 08:06 PM

Never ever a drive-in across from the Granada, but there was a Link's drive-in across from the Arlington. Also State never gets closer than over 1,000' to Modoc so what hundred block would you be referring to.

Rex, my parents had fond memories of Petersens peanut butter milkshakes, this was late 50's early 60's

@943: 4025 State St.....the kiddie rides as I recall were located in the land which is now the mobile home park...the one that is located between State and Modoc....approx. 500 feet from State St....we are talking at least until 1960....1961...
