I’m about halfway through this section at my website which has about 278 pages.
The former Dari-Delite in Point Pleasant, NJ now houses Oakwood’s Point Pizza. The building’s gables have been painted to look like pizza slices:
Under the paint and shingles might possibly be the original embossed plastic signs with Dee and Dee-Dee like this former Dari-Delite in Napa, CA:
This former Denny’s in Fresno, CA was demolished earlier this year:
The former Denny’s in Tukwila, WA closed in 2020 and was demolished at the end of last year.
It was a gem and lots of original interior details like this:
The Dairy Queen in Hibbing, MN still has the Little Miss sign on the roof, the letters on the sides of the building, and the lips logo sign on the front of the building. However, the drink cup and sundae signs are gone now:
The Dairy Queen in Sanibel, FL was badly damaged by Hurricane Ian a few months ago. Here’s the before:
GoogleStreetView doesn’t have photos yet but this Twitter user posted some photos:
The flat part of the roof is completely gone.
The former Dairy Queen in Scottsdale, AZ (a one-off for the Polynesian Plaza built in 1964) was disassembled in 2019:
It was to be reassembled at a different spot in town. The photo below is from GoogleStreetView last month. It sure appears to be an all new wood, maybe with identical measurements:
This former Der Wienerschnitzel in San Diego, CA is now housing Happy Fast Delicious:
This former Orange Julius in Los Angeles, CA housed L.A. Burger for many years. The building was demolished around 2019 with the promise that the mega building on the lot and behind it would “mimic” the roofline:
Well, the building is apparently done and here’s the “mimic” part — you gotta be kiddin’ me! OK, at least the sign is still there. Very sad. Fortunately, there are still about a dozen of these little buildings with the sawtooth roofs that survive:
This former International House of Pancakes in Riverside, CA had housed Mr. T’s since 2011. It closed in 2019. The building was badly damaged by a fire earlier this year and demolished:
That’s enough for now. I’ll be back in a few days with more Eateries.
