One of my favorite restaurants, recently closed. A mom and pop, restaurant
that had been in existence for at least 30 years. They were known for their
dinner plate size Rubens! End of an era . . . as far as Rubens go!

I imagine it's not suddenly to the people that own it. Restaurants rarely give advanced notice that they are going to close.

Oh No

In the Georgetown area of Seattle, a McDonald's, Taco Time, and an Arby's all closed down to supposedly make way for a treatment plant for the very polluted Duwamish River. I've heard from a co-worker who lives near there that this won't be a plant that goes up but in fact some yuppie condos that will ruin the charm of this area.

I used to eat at any one of these restaurants during lunch time several years ago. I'll miss them.

I used to have three Sizzler restaurants near me in the 80's to the 90's but the Sizzler that was close to me closed and became a Coco's Restaurant and it also closed and the former building where it used to be is now a Verizon Wireless store. Another restaurant chain that was huge where I live that also closed was Marie Callender's and my mom used to LOVE their lemon pies and I had four of them but the Marie Callender's near me closed when Famous Dave's decided to move in to their building and it's a shame that Marie Callender's restaurants went broke because they were known for awesome food and the best chocolate chip cookies that they had in their bakery. But when Marie Callender died in 1995 the restaurant still was awesome in keeping Marie Callender's spirit alive in the food and at least Marie Callender's still has it's frozen food line that is still great as well

Hi Bestie! Do you have any in and out restaurants in your area? We have one place here called Fosters Freeze, do you have one? What is your favorite Mexican fast food place?

Many Quaker Steak and Lube restaurants closed and one was in Lakewood that I liked!

Another is Cleveland's Hard Rock was a great location and had the best restaurant coleslaw I ever tasted!

There was a Wendy's near my house, and it burned down in January 2014. I'll find the pics I took of it and post them in the next few days.
