097: The invention of the ice cream cone

Photobucket

Day 4: Dentist check-ups. No cavities! Then lunch and ice cream at the little dive where ice cream cones were purported to have been invented. We were lucky to get a table. The line was out the door when we left. The food (burgers and bbq sandwiches) is not served on plates, but comes wrapped in plastic. I think it must be popular because it is so inexpensive.

Doumars was featured on the Food network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Check it out.

reminds me of a place we always like to go to to burgers, except we called them geasies. Just down the street a couple of shops from where Mom worked. He'd have specials and for $1 could get 10 burgers. He'd also toast the buns on the grill, so they really were greasies. Tasted great though.

For some reason I thought the cones were invented by a guy at a world's fair.

That's cool. One of our fav places to eat here in San Diego is a place we first saw on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
