Re: “Not The Greek Mafia

My parents and I ate there in the 1970"s.
I remember not really liking to go there. I couldn't say why, I guess I just liked Bob's Big Boy, Johny's , Sambo's, Hobo Joe's, Austin's etc. better.
Thanks for the info about the pictures of the family on the wall. Just yesterday I saw a picture of the interior of the restaurant. The AZ Daily Star had some pictures of Original Restaurants that are still open in Tucson. The thing I really remembered about Gus Balon's was a big mural that was painted on that wall. As I recall, it was a picture of a tree and water. I just remember studying it a lot and thinking of stories while we ate.

"The bread, rolls and biscuits eaten in the restaurant today are the same recipes he was serving since the mid-19th century. It was Kelli's mom who brought them to Tucson."

You do mean the mid 20th century, right?
