THINKING PANCAKES…

THINKING PANCAKES…

A NOSTALGIC BREAKFAST SHARE

Jerry Lapin, Al Lapin, and Albert Kallis founded International House of Pancakes in 1958 with the help of Sherwood Rosenberg and William Kaye. The first restaurant opened on July 7, 1958, at 4301 Riverside Drive in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles, California.[1]

The location is coincidentally across from the oldest remaining Bob’s Big Boy restaurant. Albert Kallis was a professional artist who designed the film posters of American International Pictures in the 1950s. Director Bert I. Gordon recalled that Kallis designed their logo[7] and left poster artwork.

The menu later expanded (especially in the 1980s) to include (along with breakfast foods) standard lunch and dinner items found in similar restaurant chains such as Denny’s. From 1959 to 1975, it was the flagship division of International Industries, a holding company which also owned the Orange Julius refreshment stands.[8]

    Hmmmm (!?) theProjectJudy. Back in the day, the only classic cars at Bob’s were patrons, probably buying burgers and shakes before heading off to a drive-in movie. All of the Bob’s Big Boys in SoCal are closed (to my knowledge). But, as for me, I love classic cars wherever and whenever the opportunity arises.

    Burbank, though it’s listed as Bob’s. On Friday night, the parking lot is filled with classic cars. The owners love talking about what they’ve done to restore them. http://www.bobs.net/

    Amazing! EagleRock, Hollywood, LaCienega, Pasadena, Bob’s Big Boys have all disappeared. I was certain Bob’s in Burbank California was gone. But it exist with classic cars…wow! And, IHOPs have changed from original pancakes and syrups to everything. Thanks theProjectJudy for the link and share!
