Anyone remember these?

Recommended Posts

1)Back in the late 50s my mom would drive to a 2-story house on old Mac Gregor east of Almeda Rd. now 288 and the woman who owned the house made pies that she sold. On certain days of the week she would be open to sell the pies, cars would fill the driveway and the street with people buying her pies. We would buy 4 pies at a time 2 cherry, 1 lemon meringue, 1 coconut cream. Sometimes mom would just buy 3 cherry pies. Never had a cherry pie as good since.

2)In 1978 they built a new street running north off Westheimer it was either West Belt, Kirkwood or City W. Blvd. the road had a big bend in it that turned right and at the end of that bend someone built a huge up scale Tex-mex Mexican restaurant my ex-wife and I ate there several times before we left to move to Louisiana, the food was great. It kind of reminded it being sort of like Don Pablo's in style but I know it wasn't. Anyone remember that place and the name?

3)Down in Seabrook just west of the 1st boat shed of Seabrook Ship Yard was/is a small seafood restaurant I see on google earth the building is still there. I can't remember the name of that restaurant. From 63-67 my dad had a 36 ft. Owens cabin cruiser docked there in the 1st shed and many a Sat. night we would walk from the boat to that restaurant. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the place.

4)A Italian restaurant on 518 west of 146 out of Kemah. I think it was called Papa something but maybe completely wrong about that. That's where I 1st ate clam spaghetti, I've never eaten any better than that guys. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

Any help in jogging my brain is appreciated.

TIA

I may be completely wrong, but here goes. I think the street was West Belt (now of course the SH tollway, or Beltway.) I remember the restaurant - went to a wedding reception there - but like you, I can't remember the name. My brain is trying to tell me that it was (something) de los Martinos, but I am not sure.

I am going to do a little research and I may get back to you.

The restaurant at Seabrook Shipyard was called the Regatta Inn. I remember they had great hamburgers.

Thx. 2 down 1 to go. I think it will be a stretch for anyone to remember the pie lady.
