    I literally grew up eating at Harvey's so it was a thrill to visit the Bob's Big Boy Broiler when I was in Southern California last November. My parents and I would meet my grandparents there a few times a week and we knew every person who worked there from the watresses to the cooks and bellboys. By the time the name changed to Johnie's I had graduated from the high chair to a booster seat. My grandpa jokingly told me that the giant Johnie boy sign on the building was me and I bragged to everybody so my family started calling the restaurant Richie's. I can remember the first time I got to sit in a booth without a booster seat and also how proud my parents were the first time I ate pancakes by myself without spilling my milk or getting syrup all over everything. I also remember bringing my son there when he was a baby, 27 years ago.
     
  3. ^^^^^ Great story Richie
     
  4. No worries folk's, your ride won't get Stomped On :eek::p;):D

    Cruise nite Weds, may be a bit chilly,but since you'll be driving a Hot Rod or a Kustom all you'll need is a kool klub jacket ;). Hope to see y'all there!
     
  6. Cool story.....born and raised in Downey from 1963-1988....went to school with John (Zander). I get to The Broiler once in a great while....I think I'll have to go soon.
     
  7. Thanks Deathbound. Perfect segway also for what I'm about to say. Next weekend Jan. 25-27 is the GNRS in Pomona @ the Fair Grounds. Last year the Broiler had a great arrival of cars from out of town in route to the GNRS. So come out next Wednesday Jan. 23, 2013 and see who rolls in this year and with what on they way to Pomona.

    Hey guys, if you get a chance, stop on in the broiler tonite. Our buddy Palle who owns the Jack Stewart 41 Ford Kustom that the Ayala Bros and Barris Bros both laid their hands on will be chowing down along with our HAMB bro Rik Hoving who keeps all of this Kustom history in his personal files and shares the info with all of us readers. Brad Masterson and Jeff Sled will be there as well, so feel free to drop in and grab some grub.

    I took my dad out to CA for his birthday over the GNRS weekend. We did so many great things and got to spend some fun 'car time' with each other. Anytime I'm in SoCal, I make it a point to hop off the 710 and hit up the Broiler. This trip was no exception. The Broiler has made a lot of people smile and there are a lot of good memories at this place. Chalk up another one!
