  1. Thanks for this walk down memory lane. This was my dad's favorite restaurant. You walked into that cowboy looking front and the waterwheel room in the back was awesome. We used to get the big pile of shrimp and fries and onion rings. I remember that bread too. Brings back fond memories of a simple time.
  2. Courthouse on shaw in pasadena had the sign as of a couple years ago.

  6. Are you talking about Hamburgers by Gourmet? They had a mushroom for a sign. They had one in the old Roy Rogers (which I remember as a kid) at the Galleria. My all time favorite restaurant is Pino's. I go to College Station to eat at the brother's place. But nothing beats Pino's.
  7. Here is a picture of my dad and Norman Pierce at OK tire company on Washington Ave. Can anyone name the car? I haven't a clue.
