I am soooo sad!!!


I was just recently telling my husband about Belisle's restaurant when he informed me that he would be going to California on business! OMG...I loved that restaurant and grew up going there. I grew up in Garden Grove and now live in the Seattle area, but I can tell you I have never found a teriyaki steak that has ever been able to touch the one served there. Not to mention it is almost impossible to find any restaurant that offers cheese sauce to put on your baked potatoe any more! We loved it too when they started trying some of the "exotic" meats, and my husband who is a hunter, thought if he was going to be there longer than overnight he would have loved to have gone with some of his coworkers...oh well...guess I'm glad it ended up being an overnight trip. It just breaks my heart that the restaurant is gone along with so much of what I remember of a magical area to grow up in at the time.
If I am right...the restaurant Kono Hawaii is probably gone too...I have never found food that compares to theirs either...sigh! Thanks to y'all for the pictures and memories...Would love to know how to make that teriyaki steak though...along with the chicken fried steak...the cheese sauce...
pies...and on and on....lol Mmmmmmm:

Belisles

I was a Pulmonary Fellow at UCI (the old Orange County Medical Center) early in the 1970s. We would go to Belisles after a long night on call and chow down. We did not worry about our weight back then and the portions served were huge..I especially remember the largest strawberries I had ever seen--Sorry to see that is it closed, although these days we do think more about dietary matters..JB

Exclamation I miss Beslilies

I was born in Anaheim (the former Martin Luther Hospital near Euclid and Orangethorpe). Grew up in Anaheim (first home for a couple of years after our apartments was 6831 Blue Ridge Court in Yorba Linda, until we moved across Esperanza to the "flats of the Santa Ana Canyon part of Anaheim Hills" where we lived at 7761 East Northfield Avenue in Anaheim Hills).

When I was growing up, and we were hungry, we went to Besliles to fill up and we left with full stomachs.

Whenever we went to "Visit the Mouse" at Disneyland, we always ended our day after the fireworks at Besliles.

When I worked for Disney Imagineering and I had to bring clients to Disneyland all the time. We would do the Club 33 bit, but to end the day, after the fireworks I would always get everyone well fed at Besliles.

When I went on Disability back in February of 1989, after a heart attack at age 20 (on top of my being a paraplegic due to Guillain-Barre Syndrome), I went to Besliles less, but was there whenever I could afford it.

I really miss Besliles, and I am so sorry that the "grandkids" did not want to continue the business. It was a "cash cow" and had a perfect location and was always busy, and making a lot of money. It was a shock in 1995 when they closed it after 40 years of wonderful service.

God Bless,

John

Belisles

I went there for my Honeymoon in 1974. Never forgot the place because it was so cool. I was just researching the restaurant to find out what happened to it. The one thing I remember vividly was the they also served RABBIT, yes Rabbit was on the munu there! Cool Huh? I have never seen Rabbit on any menu since.

Thanks for the Posts and the memories!! Glad to see I am not the only one who was "smitten" by this fantastic place!!!

I can still picture the dessert display case, with massive pies. Priceless!
