Muffin Break in Escondido (San Diego County) best muffin tops ever! i miss their cappuccino chip muffin.
Brick Oven (also Escondido) great Italian food! now gone, so sad.
Bob's Big Boy - wow. my family and I would go to every single one in the county SD and LA, then one would close and we would scout for more, but they kept closing, one after another. I think the last time I was at a Bob's Big Boy was in Burbank. we saw Drew Carry there once, but who cares. i don't.
but they are re-opening here and there, but not as many as there were.

Jolly Farms BBQ in Fontana... hands down still the best BBQ I've ever had. Ribs, chicken, you name it and it was phenomenal.

There was a diner type place called Lenny's in N. Hollywood that turned into a Tommy's maybe 15 years ago. As much as I love Tommy's, I miss Lenny's a lot. They made AWESOME breakfasts and great milkshakes.

We moved out here in '76 and lived down the street from Mikes for about 10 years. Every saturday night my sister and me would walk down to pick up a pizza and my mom always gave us a couple bucks to spend on 45's @ the wherehouse next door...memories...sorry for waxing nostalgic.

Kelbo's. I don't even know if the food was any good. I just remembered I liked the tiki torches and waterfalls as a kid.

Aloha Harry's in Gardena. The best Hawaiian fried chicken anywhere. Great Hawaiian/Chinese food.

Have you tried Torihei in Torrance? Excellent yakitori. It's a must try.

Kagura (also in Torrance) are the tonkatsu specialists in the area now. I've heard repeatedly that this is the best tonkatsu you can get outside of Tokyo.
