Remember the Dal Rae?
Up on Harbor, west side, between Bastanchury and Valencia Mesa

 

This isn't the Fullerton Dal Rae at the right here, because none are left anywhere. This one is the Pico Rivera Dal Rae, where I haven't had the pleasure myself. It's located at
9023 Washington Blvd (at Rosemead Boulevard)
Pico Rivera, CA 90660, where the phone number is (562) 949-2444

The hours are: Mon-Fri 11am-3pm, 5pm-11pm; Sat-Sun 5pm-11pm

The Sunny Hills Dal Rae was popular for years, too. Business people would go there and many a deal was consummated. They offered live entertainment, too.

What do you remember about Dal Rae?

I agree, Jack. That's why I miss Bob Burns at Fashion Island, and they had one in Santa Monica, too (and maybe elsewhere). Arnold's Farm House wasn't quite the same style, but I miss that, too. Another was Monty's Steak House in Pasadena. Well, Woody N' Eddie's on Huntington Drive nearby, too. At least Stearman's is still in Pico Rivera and up near Arcadia. I guess the franchise restaurants are bigger money-makers -- Black Angus, Cattleman's Wharf, Claim Jumper -- but they're not as personal or charming, and never as good. A place like Dal Rae was LOCAL and OURS.

Also, I asked Lancers the name of the very old Tustin/Santa Ana restaurant on 1st Street. Wayne Foss, '64 had the answer immediately: the Revere House. During World War Two, the Revere House was one of the very few restaurants in Orange County open later than 6 or 7 PM. Servicemen from the Santa Ana Air Air Base, Los Alamitos and elsewhere, and local diners enjoyed the place. According to our mothers and fathers, people just didn't go out for dinner very often in those days. Not many stores stayed open after 6, either. The Revere House closed for good several years ago, after 1 or 2 changes of ownership. Thanks, Wayne.

When my husband, Paul, first opened his office in Fullerton,
we had a cocktail reception there for many of the Fullerton doctors and their wives in late 1968.

there were a couple of party crashers, two guys who came in together, unknown by any of the others at the party. Paul went over, grabbed each by his collar, and escorted them to the door! His name definitely got circulated around the community after that!

We had many meals there including some anniversary dinners. They must have had at least 100 different entrees.
