This South Laguna landmark which anchored Aliso Pier until the pier's 1999 demolition, remains unchanged since its 1972 opening, save for the prices.

Unfortunately, she no longer makes the funnel cake that seared itself into many a lingual memory many years ago, so salve your disappointment with a sip of a powerful banana shake and a surprisingly tasteful chicken gyro.
