If you're ever in Downey and looking for a good meal, may I suggest Chris' and Pitt's Bar-B-Q? Lucy, Norman and I stopped there for lunch on Saturday while on an ill-fated journey to find Southern California's last dollhouse shop, and man, was it good! Pictured above is my chicken fried steak. It was so enormous that I had to stand up to get everything in the shot. That tiny circle to the right of the plate is a quarter, which Lucy suggested I place there for perspective. Unfortunately, the quarter is so dwarfed by the steak that it looks like a dust mote or something. Anyway, besides the enormous portions, other signs that Chris' and Pitt's is a worthwhile stop: it's been around since 1949, crackers served with the salad, enormous water glasses, full sets of silverware for every diner (none of this giving you a spoon only if you order soup), two bottles of homemade BBQ sauce on every table, proper punctuation in the restaurant's name. Oh, and bear and mounted deer head statuary in the lobby.
