eating at the West Covina Huddle as a kid and that fireplace described in the webpage, but I don't have any memory of the meal.

Synthetrix,

You have done a great job! I hope we see more about Huddle.

Does anyone have more pictures of the Palm Springs location?

So that's who John Anson Ford was. What a great photo. I passed it along to Anna Cummins, Paul's granddaughter.
Thanks Chris!

Wow! That picture is awesome. I have never seen a photo of this location and that Devil/pitchfork sign is wild. Arizona State University has Sparky The Sun Devil as their mascot and there is an "A" on the devil's chest, so maybe it's Phoenix? I don't know if they had a location there or not. I will have to look into it.
