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.

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.
