We used to have them in California too. I believe they just changed their name at our location (during the 70s I believe), but I can't remember what the new name was.

I loved them too. Never saw them on the east coast though. Just when I went on my honeymoon and toured Utah, Nevada, Arizona & California in the 70's. They had the best breakfasts.

They had them in Georgia about 25 years ago but have long disappeared.

Mountain Jack's has been gone from my area for so long! We loved going for the good food and the decor. DH loved looking around at all the different stuff they had there. Another place we miss is Po' Folks. It was simple country cooking but their fried chicken was the best. Better than KFC. Could get a picnic pac for 10 people for around $20 and have chicken with all the fixins AND a gallon of tea or lemonade. That was some good eatin!

I went to Mama Leone's on my Senior Class trip to New York City in 1957. What a treat for a 16 year old girl. Sorry to know that it is out of business. (please don't do the math lol)

Guess you're not referring to the Sambo's chain that had to change it's name to Denny's for PC reasons?

According to www.dennys.com Denny's changed their name from Danny's Donuts to Denny's in 1959. I know we had a Sambo's in our town until the early '70s.

there are still Bob Big Boys around, for instance, in Baker California, just outside Vegas. but they have changed everything, where as their burgers used to be huge and full of flavor, they are now mediocre at best.
all 5 of this family has decided not to darken any of their doors any more. it just ain't worth it

Mine are still around but not here ~ Togo's and Del Taco. I know, very unsophisticated, but I loved Togo's turkey salami on white and Del Taco's Big Fat Steak Taco.

I have always preferred Taco Bell to Del Taco, but when I went back to visit my family in March, I made sure we went to Del Taco at least once! I do miss them!
