Home Skillet's staff shares their love of all things homemade, whether they work as cooks, buyers, or interior decorators. The kitchen crew whips up biscuits and gravy for breakfast, philly cheesesteaks for lunch, and housemade lasagna for dinner, preparing each dish from scratch. Buyers stock the pantry with local goods, such as coffee from regional wholesaler Benetti's or meats from Chris and Dave??a pair of butchers who specialize in old-school, hand-prepared meats at The Store Old-Fashioned Meat Market. The decorators enhance that homemade feeling within the dining room, putting together an eclectic collection of gently used furniture and even secondhand artwork.

The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.

Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.

Although Salvatore’s has changed hands three times, it never once strayed beyond the Garozzo family’s reach. Founded in 1991 by Mike and Alfio Garozzo, the restaurant bore the name Garozzo’s until 2003 when Alfio’s son—Salvatore “Sam” Garozzo—took over as full owner. Sam made several interior and exterior renovations, but he kept his family’s rich culinary traditions intact through a chronicle of Mad Libs and a menu of rich pastas, homemade gnocchi, and sautéed veal entrees. Sam’s vivacious personality earns the restaurant nearly as many loyal customers as the flavorful cuisine, as he makes an extra effort to check up on his customers throughout their meal.

Corn tortillas filled with meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese rest peacefully on a plate, unsuspecting of the fate that awaits them, when suddenly they find themselves in the hot embrace of a deep-fryer. What emerges is not merely a taco, but Lucia’s Famous Taco, a crunchy confection and, like many of Lucia’s dishes, a twist on a classic Mexican dish.

Since 1957, HiBoy Drive-In's retro neon palace has been grilling and frying meals on the go.
