:-) I mentioned the Aztec drive in my e.mail re the jack in the box last weekit was on the north west corner of college and El Cajon.they had car hop service at one time. my dad would go there some time when we were working on the house in 1950. later on my newspaper corner was across the street at the market. I would work the entrances to the market. when it slowed down, i would leave a coin box with the papers and i would go cross to the Aztec motel (next door to the diner) and go around selling papers. i think i got to keep 2 cents for every dime i collected. hum High finance.Pat
Yes, I remember that corner very well. I grew up one block from there and my Mom still lives in the same house. I ate there with my parents in the '50's when I was very young. I love the pictures of it. I remember that car hop service in 1954 Ford Customline car that later became my first car in high school. Oh those were the days.
I was introduced to rib steak at the Aztec in the early 50's. My family would go there and have Sunday dinner once in a while. We'd sit in a circular booth in the back. Other families were having dinner in their cars!
Patrick is correct. It was right on the corner of College and El Cajon. In the summer, I would go there every day with a comic book, buy a 10 cent icecream cone, and sit at the counter and read my comic book. And yes, there were car hops.
