Lyon's was a American fare diner (a la IHOP or Denny's) restaurant. They are a Northern California chain that was founded in San Francisco in 1952. They peaked with 72 restaurants in 2001, but declared bankruptcy that year, blaming the recession, and closed nearly half their restaurants. The local restaurant, number 469, survived for another four years, finally closing their doors in 2005. By 2010, there were only five locations remaining.
The 24 hour Lyon's in Sacramento remains open and is a common place to sober up or continue chatting into the next morning for people enjoying the downtown Sacramento scene.
