2011-08-04 15:36:07   Welcome to the wiki! Thanks for adding your recollections for departed businesses and history of existing businesses! They really add to the pages. You mentioned that Davis needs a old-fashioned ice cream shop... I am curious, what do you think of the Davis Creamery, now part of Sugar Daddies? Is that the sort of place you mean, or something else? I like that they make their own ice cream and have some unusual flavors along with the regular ones. —CovertProfessor

2011-08-04 16:37:07   Thanks very much for adding your knowledge of local history to the wiki! I hope you are able to find out the name of that steak place that used to be in the Silver Dragon spot. I've been trying to figure that out for a long time! —ScottMeehleib

2011-08-04 18:22:29   I don't remember the name of the steakhouse, but I do remember its red logo with a "T". Toppers comes to mind. Maybe that helps. Do you remember Angela's in the Anderson Plaza in the mid or late 1960's. Our family used to enjoy going there for pizza when we lived on Oeste Dr, —SueHjerpe

2011-08-05 12:37:29   Thanks everybody!

So yah, long time resident, just moved back from Sac. where I'd been for a few years. I'll try my hand at editing/adding some defunct places as well, thank you for the suggestion. FYI - "73" refers to the year of my birth. Thanks again for all the kind replies.

I'll definitely have to check out the "Davis Creamery/Sugar Daddies" place with the kids. Yolo Berry is good too, I guess I'm just nostalgic for that old "Classic Creamery" atmosphere.

Scott - yah, it was "Peking" (now Silver Dragon)... want to say it was briefly "Golden" (something) before that. Don't know what the name of the Steakhouse was, but right Sue, it did have the Red Logo with the "T". The rest of the information I got was from my parents, who moved us to Davis from the East coast in '74. I remember similar decor at "Milk Farm" in Dixon, actually... but I was young, it might have been a bit different.

Can't say I remember Angela's pizza... one thing on restaurants though: Davis restaurants seem to trend heavily in food types/nationalities in profusion over the years. In the mid 80's, seems like there were 100 (great exaggeration) Chinese Food places. These days, I come in to town and there a thousand (greater exaggeration!) Thai places. I love both kinds of food (especially Thai), but it just seems to ebb and flow so much for such a small town. I guess it's because of campus, it just still has always seemed extreme to me. —OldDavis73

2011-08-05 13:41:17   Out of curiosity, what's the 73 from? —WesHardaker

2011-11-10 13:01:57   No problem. :) —ScottMeehleib

2012-06-19 12:58:25   Oh, you rock. Awesome. —CovertProfessor

2012-06-19 13:11:45   That is just wonderful! Thank you so very much for that photo! —JabberWokky

2012-06-19 15:10:38   Ha! Great minds. :-) —CovertProfessor

2012-06-20 02:44:25   hey good call on the comment integration —StevenDaubert

2012-07-06 15:49:38   I got what you meant in an "old world style pub". I do think it satisfies some aspect of what people were looking for, even if it's not a dead on match to the specific type. —JabberWokky

2012-10-27 12:19:16   hey when did the south davis mcdonalds open? —davisrox

2013-03-08 12:47:15   thanks for adding the jacks urban eats info. I was planning on going in when they opened and talking them up re wiki —StevenDaubert
