And they would use an exterminator from New York City; why? Obviously you have an agenda.

I drove past 33 Alhambra Rd.(the former address of Dick & Dora's) last night:(1-15-10)...At first I thought I had passed it. Much to my astonishment, I discovered that the entire building was no longer there! Apparently the real estate whores where able to scoff onto the property. It's always encouraging to know that the Nassau politicians will allow anyone to build on a postage stamp if it means property tax revenue. Goodbye...Dick & Dora's... we will miss you.

Does anyone know why Dick and Dora's closed? This restaurant was a Massapequa landmark. My family has been going there for over 50 years. I hope someone will takeover and re-open it.

I'm so glad I finally moved from $$$ Long Island!!! Dick and Dora's is one of many of the places that are gone, which once supported the high prices people got for their homes. Massapequa has become nothing but an over priced Wasteland today, the resturaunts are all gone or failing, the boating and fishing is gone, the schools are all full of drugs and teacher prostitution seems to have been invented there... Alahambra is no longer one of many tiny beaches, only us long island residents knew about, it is a trash dump now. Of hand, I got the impression Dick and Dora's closing was simply a sign of the times...

I seen Rats big a cats at night come in out of Dick & Dora in Massapequa. The area is now infested with Rats on Alhambra Road. The food sucked the past few years there with hair and finger nails in the food. What a white trash hell hole. I am so happy Dick & Dora is gone, now get rid of the Massapequa Park white trash.

I got a serious case of Food Poisening from Dick & Doras about 1 year before it closed. They got a ton of violations shortly after that, that may have been the nail in there coffen. Thank goodness they torn this shi&t Shack down. There is about 20 more places like this in Massapequa that need a wrecking ball.

Not sure where all the BS posts are coming from but the owners and family of D&D were the nicest people one could ever deal with. Its a shame about the passing of the owner because he was a sweetheart who would never do anyone any harm...God rest his sole..

Dude, the owners wife was a Bitch and did not care about anyone: Dick & Dors was a rat infested hotel - with Roaches and mice all over. What a f'ing hell hole but it fit right in the trailer park with-out wheels Massapequa Park. White Ghetto trash.

Wow that's some lie. Here's the score, NEVER a Town or Board of Health Violation look it up. The exterminator that srviced the place for almost 15 years wouldn't agree with your comment.

This place not only held a lot of memories for some old-timers but for younger couples as well. We loved the interesting specials and the food was great. The staff was like a family. I actually can't believe some of the mean things people write. I don't think I can be this vicious towards anything, especially such a great memory. Shame on you!

I have the best memories there as a kid going out with my family to DIck and Dora's we always got the same waitress who was Doris nearly 30 yrs ago and we later ended up going to her house on a regular basis to swim and enjoy. They had all these paintings of disney characters it was a great memory and Dick and Doras has the best clams casino. If it fell to the wayside i wouldnt know but it was disappointing to hear that when i decided to look them up they closed not but 6 months ago ... timing huh?

I used to go to D&D as a kid, when the old owners Joe and Helen ran it. Back then the place was a top notch local Italian joint, with the likes of Joe Namath and Mark Gastino frequenting the place. It was sold to a very arrogant Greek family in the mid 80s, who turned it into a glorified diner. I worked there as a teen under the new owners. The husband, Louie I believe his name was, was a decent guy, drunk most of the time, but kind. The younger son, Spiro, was mostly tolerable, although he had an inflated sense of self worth because his parents owned a restaurant and bought him and his d*uche bag brother, George, new Corvettes at age 17. The Mom, Van, was a mean spirited, cocky, drunk, who cared about no one, except maybe her lap dog son George, who was as insufferable as she was.
They managed to keep it going through the 80s until the old owners' crowd started dying off, literally. Then they tried to send the younger son, Spiro, to culinary school, and designate him "master chef"--this was the beginning of the end. Sadly, the husband became wheel chair bound do to a stroke, the mom drank herself half blind at the bar every night, and the kids Corvettes were eventually traded in for mid-priced sedans.
Place had a history, but its time had come.

No one pay attention to this guy. He is on every blog using different names and ip addresses bashing everything under the sun. I don't know why, I think he has a mini cock. You could tell it is him by his spelling errors and same retoric for everything. Just disregard all that he writes. He is just a lonely loser. I am pretty sure his name is Jhonathan Minera and he is a horrible cook that can't hold a job for more than three months.
