    This brings back memories…. I worked in Downey off and on for almost a year, and ate here twice.

      We just happened to pass by it! I didn’t even know it existed, I thought it was cool they have a little museum there with artifacts from what the cups and containers used to look like. Too bad I didn’t take a photo of that.

  2. omfg, so awesome! i wish i had known about this during our roadtrip! We would have gone here. must program address into our gps thing. we have never been to downey.

    oh yeah, we tried the porto’s in burbank on father’s day. loved it!
