Best stuck-in-the-past restaurants?

Shane Greenwood | Aug 4, 2008 07:23 AM

I'm looking for more restaurants that have a stuck in the past feel. Places where the waiters might still do table side caesar salad, bartenders make a perfect martini in a proper glass, menus have a distinct meat and potatoes flair, decor fits in more with 1958 than 2008. Finding old restaurants is easy, but which ones have the better food? So far we've enjoyed:

Marin Joe's
Capp's Corner
Balboa Cafe
