Johnie's site in May, schafphoto, Flickr
The final OK was given to begin the clean-up and reconstruction of Johnie's Broiler in Downey. Please recall some nimwit tried to illegally demolish the historic restaurant, built in the late 50's, before police stopped him. The property was being used as a car dealership at the time, so you know, it didn't matter. Historic preservationists made a lot of noise and the current owners are negotiating with the Big Boy chain to restore the building back to a restaurant. Go Fat Boy!
