Thanks WM... I wondered if Jerry's would reopen....guess not..... gotta find another source for lox in the South Bay. Funny, I was just there the other week and didn't see anything about farrell's opening up.... is there a sign up? I have great memories of farrell's (when they were in Brea) and we used to have wild birthday parties there.
I don't think that outdoors extension of the Del Amo Mall can really support any more chain restaurants. I was hoping Market Broiler would've opened up but it looks like they backed out of the area. I would've liked to have another fish option other than the red lobsters (ugh) and the tiny fish grill concepts....
Farrell's I believe has a location in Santa Clarita and Mission Viejo now, and they've always existed in Hawaii. Velvet Turtle I believe is long gone, as is Straw Hat.
No A&W's around any more as far as I know - the last one I knew of was on Pico near Factor's Deli if I recall correctly.
Straw Hat Pizza isn't long gone... http://www.strawhatpizza.com/locations/
Pioneer Chicken... according to Wikipedia (groan... I know).
There are 3 remaining locations in the Los Angeles area: 1) 5970 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles (near San Vicente Blvd); 2) 904 S Soto Street, Los Angeles; and 3) 6323 Florence Avenue, Bell Gardens.

The A&W website lists three outlets in Los Angeles County, including Torrance in addition to the ones below. Most of these are labeled as "multibrand" which I think means they're mall food-court counters that also offer Taco Smell and other fast-food brands.
