Hurt, please understand that there area lot jerks out there. In this Twitter/Facebook world, people can and do say anything that comes to mind. You need to realize that it is pretty amazing that people, such as myself, follow this thread about a restaurant than has now been long closed. My family and I had many great experieinces at Gay and Larry's. I have almost perfected some of the recipes and have come close to replicating them at home. I hope that a cookbook is forthcoming. I did have the opportunity to meet your Grandmother, Trudy, on several occasions and can say that I only have vey positive memories about the encounters. Remember the good memories and discount the others. You have a legacy that you should be very proud of.

@JCS, I am very proud of my family and my grandmother. I do remember all of the great memories I have of her. I do realize that this social networking world can and do say hurtful things. I also know that when I responded to this thread, I was acting out of anger and hurt. I miss them so much. As far as replicating the recipes and almost perfecting them, I am glad you were able to do so as not many people can or even attempt to with the diversity of those recipes. Hopefully one day, the cook book will be published. In all honesty- I simply do not know is the only thing I can say as for that matter. Thank you for your kind words and continue to remember my grandmother for the loving sweet sharp tongued when necessary woman that she was.

I was reading posts in this forum about my grandmother and my uncle- who are now both deceased, and it sickens me to see that someone would go to the lengths to degrade the familiy's name and business that was open for 60 years and to say that it was less than good, is disgusting. Ano, My uncle Travis was not a theif, nor a drug addict, and it was not his fault that Grandma Trudy's house burned down. I will agree with one of the previous comments that it was in fact his 7 year old son at the time, and it was devastating to us all that everything was lost. I hope that everyone really understands that with the loss of Grandma Trudy it has been a struggle in getting the cook book published and I don't know that it ever will be, hence the reason no orders and exchange of money was ever conducted. Please if anyone has any questions, and you have a facebook page- try to contact my uncle Brian Lawson, as I do not keep in touch with much of the family any more. And please to the moron calling my Grandmother a BITCH- keep her name out of your comments and thoughts because she was a great woman who treated everyone like family. May she rest in peace.
Like so many, one of my fondest childhood (and adult) memories is dinner at Gay and Larry's. My entire family feels the same. It was a pleasure to find this site, then shocking to read such angry comments. I do not understand what is wrong with some people. To this day, I still fantasize about Gay and Larry's chili rellenos, tacos, salsa, and nachos. Would you consider releasing or publishing the recipes? I would be happy to pay you for these gems, perhaps in honor of Trudy and your Uncle Travis? And try to ignore the negative, although I know it's hard at times. Some people have nothing better to do; sadly they are all over the Internet. Please consider my request. I know I speak for 1000's of people all over the country. My very best.

I thoroughly enjoyed not only the food, but the staff. My favorite was old #12, cheese stuffed chili enchiladas. I would love to get the recipe. I think the chili's were of the 'Anaheim' type, but don't know for sure. Think I'm going to look on the web again for a recipe that hopefully comes close. Best Mexican food ever.
