I've eaten at Papoo's a couple of times now, and I like the place. I think it's definitely worth the stop.

I hate to say this but I ate at Papoo's once and I thought it truly stunk. Sorry. :oops:

drove by this weekend and saw the new paintjob... regardless of how you like or don't like the food - the beige color (instead of original red) is what really stunk.

On Saturday went to the Big Boy and Papoos and the paint job was the exact same as before with the red and white. Maybe they had complaints or something??? I dont know...

I got my film back...here are my pictures:

According to the signbuilder I talked with last nite, public outcry convinced them to go back to the red after painting the whole thing beige. NOW, it's our chance to keep this sign intact. The sign painter desperately needs an image of the winged hot dog from before the mid-80s when it became as rusted out as it is today... ANYBODY out there have a photo?

http://www.quartzcity.net/category/los-angeles/

It's from Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) and it shows the counter...Ive never seen the movie but maybe it shows the whole building or the sign ???

I've been staying in touch with Papoo's owner, discussing various sign designs based on her thoughts and ideas. In the meantime, the sign has temporarily been primered (as you can see in Eric's photo).

If you're at Bob's on Friday nights and it's crowded, stop in at Papoo's -- they've been at that intersection as long as Bob's, have a great grill, and are constantly adding new BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER items to their menu!

does the fact that the dog is an angel with a harp suggest that the dead pig or cow has come back from heaven to grace us with food???

although i love the hot dog angel - does anyone know of its roots?

Well, there's that animated movie "All Dogs Go To Heaven." Does anyone know if the title is taken from a common saying? Whomever designed the angel hot dog might have been thinking of that...
