Some great places have closed over the years: Delores' Drive in on Wilshire in Beverly Hills (anybody lucky enough ever to try chef Jimmy's Gumbo? Usually sold out before noon.), the old Hamburger Hamlets (it aint't the same), Benite's Frites (sp?) in SaMo, the Dog House chain, Regular Jons (I liked the submarine sandwich), Bob's Big Boy (yeah, but it's not the same), Pup n'Taco.
