The missus is trying to remember a gone restaurant on the corner of Chef & Downman - diagonal across from the Chevy dealer...

"corner of Chef & Downman - diagonal across from the Chevy dealer..."

was Hal's Roast Beef. It wasn't actually on the corner, but close.

aboy: Martin Bros. was across Downman Rd. but on the same side of Chef as Banner Chevrolet. Look at this photo:

How about this for an inside photo of Martin Bros.

Chef: Hal's had a great BBQ beef on bun. We used to stop in for a few on the way to the old Sky-Vue Drive-in.

I'm going to guess Happy Landing but I think that was closer to Hayne Blvd.

Happy Landing was on Hayne, not too far east of Downman. Near the Happy Landing was another restaurant/bar, built out over the lake "camp-style", with an airplane-related name. I wanna say it was called "Crash Landing", but that was used by the one on Causeway.

Hal's Roast Beef was owned and operated by our next-door neighbor, Harold Breeding. He and his father also owned Hal's Commercial Restaurant on Gravier off Baronne. Hal passed away a few years ago.

As for the place on Chef at Downman, I can vividly recall the building, but the name is clouded. It as a white stucco building, possible a gas station/restaurant, maybe 2-story. I'll call a friend who grew up nearby; if he remembers, I'll post.

When you read the back of the postcard it reads: "Located at Highways No. 11 and No. 90...the old White Kitchen location.

No, Jerry. White Kitchen was close to if not at US90 and US190.
US90 and US11 was called Powers Junction. There were some commercial businesses there, maybe a gas station, but no restaurant of any distinction.
