You asked where I was when Eat n Park opened its doors 60 years ago. I was 6 days old, being born on May 31, 1949. Eat'n Park and I celebrate our special birthdays together.
My first recollection of Eat'n Park was the one on Rt. 51in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. We were on our way home from a family outing and stopped there for dinner. I could not have been more than 4 or 5 years old at the time. My dad and 2 older brothers ordered Big Boys. I can remember almost being in tears because I thought only boys could order that. After much consulation by my mother, I too had my first Big Boy and thought that was the best sandwich in the whole world and now 60 years later, I still order the best sandwhich in the whole world. Thank you Eat'n Park for 60 great years.
