One of the other posts reminded me of the old Buck Forty-Nine Pancake and Steak House. We used to eat there before high school football games back in the late 1960s.

If so, I wouldn't have known. We went to the one on the West Bank Expressway.

I remember going to the one on Carrollton Avenue in "The Riverbend" (I don't think 'they' dreamed up that moniker way back when) after a Tulane game at Tulane Stadium when I was in high school. I don't remember the food.

There was one on Airline Highway somewhere in the vicinity of the Borden's and the Airline Shopping Center where they had the MB and Woolworth's. We didn't go out to eat very often, but I got a banana split there when they had a promotion where you could get a banana split for a nickel if the nickel was a certain year and mint. Obviously someone was a coin collector, recognized that the nickel was valuable and acquired a lot of nickels that way.

I remember you could get a steak with fries and a salad for $1.49.
