In the 70's and early 80's my family and I would eat Chris N Pitt's at least once every two weeks, if not more. Mmmm, spare ribs, and not to mention the really big bacon cheeseburger. Oh man, now I'm hungry. I also rember as a kid buying the rolled up horoscopes from the little vending machine at the front. Anyway, memories. Before I drove, I used to ride there on my bike and pick up dinner for the family.
Also, when older, I used to go to the Northwoods Inn in Rosemead off the 210 freeway. The steaks were ok, but as everyone said, you went for the atmosphere, peanuts on the floor, cheesy pictures and bread, salads, and all.
OK, it's almost 11, but gotta eat lunch now.
