Does anyone remember The Blue Circle? My mom worked there back when I was a little girl. It was on the west end of town around where Taco Bell is now.

Think it was past Cherokee Park, before you get to the cabin rentals. Don't remember who owned it, think it was run by Erwin Williams. He was retired from the employment office and ran several restaurants in the area. He was the manager of the what was then the Ramada Inn on 25E when it first opened. Bright, funny and interesting individual who passed away this year.

I could have the names confused, but think the one on the right past the bridge was the Galley operated by the Roberts family, who had other restaurants Morristown.

I believe you are referring to Taco Rancho. I still have one of their bar stools; we got it when we raided the place after it closed down, just before they tore it down! We used to park in their lot on weekends while cruising.

Possibly - was it ever a Sambo's? Was it something besides Mr. Gatti's?

Coles also had a great burger, I think they had some kind of special slaw on it.

When I was a child,there was a place on the West AJ Hwy somewhere near the motel past the Amoco on the left.It had a bird or monkey out front.The name was Ma and Pa Jackson's maybe?? Does anyone remember? How about you Sandy?
That was my grandpa's place! Owned by Ray and Genevie Jackson! The postcard I still have says, "New 20 Unit Burkhart Motel adjoining".
Does anyone know if the building survives or what became of it?

Remember Ford's Diner, across from where Big Lots is now? They had great little hamburgers.
I also liked Ham 'N Goody's for the short time it was here.
Did you know that place is open and still has those little hamburgers? A lot of people dont know its open cause there isnt a sign,but its a great place to eat.
