It's too bad Wayne and Michael (Dog3) aren't posting here anymore. They'd
recognize some of these old Memphis restaurants.

Did anyone ever figure out if that old queen Michael is alive? I heard
she croaked, and that Wayne went belly up.

Don't be crude. It's people like you who drove the original posters away.

"Snoodles" is too big a chicken to say something like that as his/her
normal "personality", if s/he has one.

arms bent at elbow, flapping them like wings, strutting in a circle
and making chicken sounds at "Snoodles the coward"

The Knickerbocker...



99th Bomb Group by the airport


The name sounded familiar, and it turns out it was part of the "94th
Aero Squadron" group, known more formally as Specialty Restaurants.
There are a couple of dozen left in the chain, though only a few are
aviation-themed. www.specialtyrestaurants.com

The claim is that an outbreak of salmonella killed the 99th Bomb
Group's business. After trying to make a go of it for several years,
the restaurant operator simply closed up shop, and eventually the
airport sued:

Actually, we're both wrong. It was the 91st Bomb Group. They actually had
good food. They had an arrangement with the airport to let them listen in
on the air traffic controller's chatter with the planes via headphones at
the tables. It's where I first tasted beer-cheese soup. I'll bet if I
googled I could find the recipe.

In any case, Michael and Wayne are both on the RFC Facebook group. Michael's
a middling-frequent poster; Wayne hardly ever posts, but I think he's busy
squaring away his housing.

99th Bomb Group, really??

Another one for your list (IIR the name correctly) was Aga Khan
(Ghengis Khan?). I loved that place.

Sorry! 91st Bomb Group. Next to the airport. Wonderful beer cheese soup.
We'd sometimes make the drive there for lunch... extending the lunch hour by
about 30 minutes

Hmmm, I don't remember that one. I remember going to Picadilly's cafeteria
in Germantown with co-workers. I used to hate cafeterias; they reminded me
too much of school. I vaguely remember The Hungry Fisherman or Catfish
Cabin.

What about The Shanti (a miniscule steak house) with seating for maybe 8
people? Mis-matched plates, and you ate at a picnic table inside a tiny
shack. It was across the street from putt putt golf. They did have great
steaks, though. They screwed up their business plan and went belly up after
moving to a strip mall to open a larger restaurant. The same thing happened
to Buntyn's when they moved from the original location on Southern to a
strip mall.

What about the Luau? Tiki torches and totem poles in the parking lot.
Slighty down the street from East High School. I never ate there but it was
fun to see driving by. What about the Four Flames in midtown?

There was a great restaurant in Bartlett, TN called The Side Porch. When I
was in my 20's my mother and I used to go shopping then go to The Side Porch
for lunch. They served liver & onions. Mom loved liver & onions. When I
went back to move I took John there on what turned out to be their last day
the restaurant was open. Another good restaurant gone by the wayside. It's
a difficult busness.

Cafeterias seem to be enduringly popular in the south for some reason.
(Freestanding ones, not part of any institution.) Curious after seeing
an ad for Picadilly's on some nostalgia TV network, I found the
northernmost one was near St. Louis. (Odder still, all Picadilly's
outlets were in former slave states.) The one that sticks in my mind
is Luby's, because of the Texas massacre at one.

There was a chain called something like 94th AeroSquadron that located
as close as possible to airport runways. Denver's old airport had one
and there was one near one of the regional airports in San Diego.

There are still "squadron" restaurants at Miami, Cleveland, Van Nuys,
and Farmingdale NY, according to their website:

Massacres aside, I was never a very big fan of cafeterias (Picadilly's,
Luby's and I'm pretty sure there was a third one for a little while). They
remind me too much of school. Sliding a tray down a metal railing telling
the lunch ladies what you'd like. Of course they're wearing plastic gloves
because that's what lunch ladies l do. And they wear hairnets (or in some
cases shower-cap type hats). And long aprons. That makes me wonder what
sort of illness these cafeteria workers might have since they practically
don hazmat suits to serve food through a slot covered by a sneezeguard.

The Golden Corral seems to be a popular cafeteria sort of place.
Bill's uncle took us to one in Florida and it was packed. Ordinarily,
I wouldn't go near a buffet type joint, but his uncle loves the place.
There are a LOT of them in SoCal and their parking lots are usually
full.

I rarely go to restaurants but Golden Corral is about my favorite. Price is
right, food is good with a good variety of offerings, casual family
atmosphere. At least around here, go on Friday/Saturday nights and a good
selection of seafood items too.

I prefer the buffet style restaurants.
