    Actually it was around Lunt and Western. My favorite were the lyonnaise potatoes.

      It was one of my parents favorites. . . went there many times. Good ribs, too. We like Black Angus better, though (not the one on Western now) it was at Estes and Western. Piano bar, etc. I think the usual piano players name was Norm Scheer. They had excellent ribs. . . .Shrimp DeJonge, etc. Briefly turned into someplace call the Library. . . . then a fire. . . . then an empty lot for 15+ years. . . . now a strip mall. . . . .

      Growing up, we used to have their ribs almost every Friday night. (Until Sherry's opened on Bryn Mawr (I think) - anyone else remember that gem?) Miller's also had a killer Green Goddess Salad which as I recall, was about the only thing vegetable that RevAndy would eat until he was 16.

        My "better brother" is mistaken about the Green Goddess salad. That was served at Black Angus, which was owned by Chris Carson, who went on to open a rib chain whose name eludes me. You'll find that same salad on the menu. By the way, that salad wasn't the only vegetable I liked. My brother was the other one.
