    Ok waaaaaay back..

    But as a kid growing up, you could eat at Sears in a cafeteria they had.. This was in White Plains NY..

    Also Howard Johnsons was known for dinner, not hotels when I was younger..

    Did you go to IC or Cornell? I went to Ithaca College.

    I use to work at both Friendlies and ground round here on Long Island.

    Did it all at Friendlies, an mos of the stores are still around

    Waitered at GR and that's been gone a while. I remember the weigh in from when I was a kid. Plus the popcorn--that stuff would be all over the place by the end of the night, and the big screen projector playing the old, slightly odd cartoons. I remember there were 2 rooms, the kids/family room and the adult room. Man, I always wanted to eat in the adult room, it was like graduating to the adult table on thanksgiving.

    Yes, Howard Johnson's. Yummy food, and ice cream. There were also some HJ items carried in our grocery store frozen food cases. I especially loved the toaster squares that tasted like sweet-type corn bread. Delish! Favorite HJ ice cream flavor was Pistachio.

    The Russian Tea Room in NYC. I was only there twice, but it left a lasting impression.

    we ALWAYS eat at Big Boy when we visit family in Cincinnati. i wish there were one here.

    i'm bummed because our On the Border closed (i know they're still around, but not here). i also miss Friendly's, but i know some of those are still around.

    Chi-Chi's was SO great!

    Yum! Loved that place. I miss Famous-Barr's Mauritania Room. French onion soup was the best. Also miss Tippins -- a lot! Loved their soups and pie -- a perfect meal.

    I remember Furrs cafeteria. When we would visit my grandparents in Greely Co. we would go there for Sunday dinner. It was funny because my dad and granddad would say lets get there early before the piano lady starts playing.
