Is Love's Wood Pit BarBQ restaurant still around?

I recently saw an abandoned lot with the "Loves BBQ"sign still standing off the 22 fwy in Orange/Garden Grove,Ca.

    I was so sad the first time I drove by the West L.A./Pico one and it had turned into a car dealership...

    We used to go there all the time in college- and have prime rib- my roommate would order fries for all 3 sides... so the waitress remembered him and would call him "fries, fries and fries"

    aw... and my grandpa used to take us there when I was a kid too- a different location (musta been in the valley)

    you're making me sad- I used to love that place.

    Hmmm- it still has a website:

    http://www.lovesbbq.com/main.html

    although it only says Jakarta, Indonesia if you go to "Locations".. I wonder what happened?

    I just found about the Chula Vista location

    I love Love's Wood Pit Barbecue. That was my first job as a hostess, 10 years ago when I was in high school. They have the best ribs and barbecue! From what I know, the only one left in LA is in Lakewood. They do have one in Chula Vista (San Diego County) and to my surprise, Indonesia.

    Love's Wood &BBQ Pit was a subsidiary of the IHOP Corporation. There were maybe 10 in existence in 1978. I worked at the one in Chatsworth in 1978. There also was one in, I suppose, Granada Hills and another in Woodland Hills. There were also a few in the Dallas area. Good fare at reasonable prices.

    In the Cleveland area we had Manners Big Boy and Bob's Big Boy. The ones that I knew about are closed now (I've never heard of Shoney Big Boy, but the Shoney's restaurants are in the south)

    Wow! That goes waaayyyy back! I even remember the slogan/song. The web shows two; one in Chula Vista and another in San Diego. The url doesn't work for Chula Vista, though.

    I hope you find one.
