Formerly known as Chicken Pie Shop of San Diego. Founded before World War II in 1938, this area institution especially appeals to senior citizens--many of whom have patronized it ever since. The original location was downtown on Fifth Avenue near B Street, with a branch at Fifth and Robinson in Hillcrest. The dinner then cost 35 cents. In 1970, the branch moved across the street and the original downtown location closed. In 1990, it relocated here.
