Hungry, but a hamburger from In-N-Out does not appeal to you, just head next door to Big Daddy’s Fire Grill Pasadena, California  in for wood fired burgers, dogs and sausages.  I recommend the chili dog, a quarter pound hot dog slathered with a full bodied, lightly spiced chile.

  1. Great shot Wayne, I love these burger joints a lot better than some of the regular fast food chains that you see on almost any street corner in America.

    • Thanks, James. Yep, the independents beat the chains by a mile.

    Even though it’s been riffed on by everyone from the creator of the Simpson’s to (as Wikipedia was kind enough to put it) “like Helnwein’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams, which became a popular poster, retain the diner and the highly recognizable diagonal composition, but replace the patrons and attendant with other characters: animals, Santa Claus and his reindeer, or the cast of The Adventures of Tintin or Peanuts. I still love the painting Nighthawks – which I’m getting a little whiff of with this photo. Nice job, as usual, Ollie.

    • Thanks, Stanley. As a matter of fact I consider the work of Edward Hopper a major influence on my own works.
