WOW. This used to be THE PLACE to have a birthday party when I was a kid. (that was a long time ago) I remember the one in Torrance had lines to get in. we would always dare each other to order the "Pig Trough". and remember the Z00???
Nice. I hope its close to the same, it would do well. (There is one in San Diego and it is nothing like the old Farrells...it really sucked)
Oh, I remember this place as a kid! We went there often and I even had birthday parties there. And yeah, the one in San Diego...a few years ago my husband and I were visiting with a relative in San Diego. We were out shopping and spotted a FARRELLS and both went in, excited and hoping to get a Pig Trough or a Zoo ice cream. That Farrells was a real let down...it was filthy disgusting on the inside. Dirty floor, all the tables and chairs were sticky and grimy, and the place was empty. We were so grossed out we couldn't even eat there, and left without ordering anything. Its a shame I'm going to miss the new Farrells opening date. Guess its going to be awhile before I can eat at a clean Farrells.
Well, I guess with the opening and success of Coldstone's, it's kind of bringing back the old days. Where going there on your birthday was a BIG DEAL to them. I remember going to the ones that were here in Downey at Stonewood Mall and over in the mall at Cerritos. Man those were good times.

Re: Farrell's opening soon
If they hold true to their origins (before Marriott bought the chain and summarily wrecked it) of premium food and Servers that get into a 'Cast Member' attitude, they will win.
Just realized what Santa Clarita is missing - they did the 'missing' black painted ceiling trick instead of a proper and period Tin Ceiling. And you can fake it easy enough - use 2' x 2' Drop Ceiling T-bar channels and drop in the Tin panels.
So, Michael? (User FARRELLSisBACK) I'm hearing "two locations in the SFV next..."
Which corners of the Valley are you thinking about first? You've got a bunch of locals in here that can keep our eyes out for good locations the Realtors might not know about.
And the way the economy of Commercial Real Estate is stuttering (and a bunch of banks have been hesitant about calling long overdue commercial land deals because they don't want the properties back...) according to the L.A. Times there will be a wave of surprise vacancies opening up.
