Does anybody remember these fine establishments? I sure enjoyed all of them. Original Hot Dog was a real wiener!

Sunnyside Inn was great mainly home cooked meals like Meatloaf, Open faced turkey and Roast beef, Breakfast!
I miss the hell out of The Bungalow.
How about Elmer's at Washington and Monroe? Always greeted with a "Hello friend" from Elmer himself. An Elmerburger and a chocolate malt sure went down good.
I remember all and miss them... but Elmers... man, I still remember a huge plate of food for very little money and the best hash browns ever....
Yes in deed... I remember all of them but Sunnyside Inn. Where was that located. I liked Dudley's but not their Hot Dogs. I think Central and Rudy's and Original were better. Billyle was out of my price range then.. Went to Willows on Prom night. I was really out classed. Ironic that a few years later I entertained friends at the "Top of the Mark" in San Francisco.
Elmer's was the greatest working mans place. We used to eat breakfast there when we were working in the Freeway through downtown in the 60's. Best Hash Browns in Toledo... Even with Elmer's hairy arms swinging the spatula. Anyone remember Smitty's on Detroit Ave a half block south from Central Ave. Great greasy French Fries and Burgers. The catsup was as thin as water and great tasting. I also miss White Hut.
Billyle had the BEST Sunday buffet anywhere/anytime. The carved turkey was wonderful! Timko's on Douglas also had a good buffet.
How about Pappy Mocks barbecue beef and pork sandwiches? It was near Airport and Reynolds.
Who can forget the White Hut? I went to Rogers High School and there was one on the corner of Reynolds and Nebraska. We walked down there from school on football game days.
I loved Timko's buffet at Douglas/Sylvania. I could live on Betty's Salad and those great soups.
Daddyg, Washington and Monroe don`t intersect (maybe they did before I-75 was constructed). I recall a restaurant on Monroe and 22nd that was next to Marleau Hardware. Could that have been Elmer's? Nearby, on Monroe near Collingwood was Burling`s Brass Rail which served excellent fried chicken.
rch101, Sunnyside Inn was originally on the north side of Dorr where Junction Avenue ends. Dorr Street had many business, two movie theaters (the World and the Atlas), Karp's Clothing Store, Harry's Clothing/Shoes, Max Wolson Drug store,
George Wild Florsheim Shoe Store, a bank, a Kroger store, and more. All of that was razed during "urban renewal". Dorr was widened and blacktopped, and acres of green grass was seeded where the shops once stood. The Sunnyside Inn relocated to Glendale just off S. Detroit Avenue in the former Bill Lyle Supper Club. What's there now... The Glendale Gardens Cafe.
Flinty, I may be mistaken about the intersection and I was just a gleam in my dads eye when 75 was constructed. I first visited Elmer's in the early 90's and I know it was on Monroe. I may have thought it was Washington because didn't Washington curve around to meet Monroe before the city redid the whole street scape a few years ago?
Where the Bill Lyll Supper Club was is now a auto repair shop. Glendale Gardens is at Glendale and Detroit.
