Well if is does end up going away I still have a very small piece of the Gobbler. Thanks DC and Caroline for the posts and updates on both locations.

I've had the pleasure of dining at the Fireside several times as a child, and also once at the Gobbler, all in the early-mid 80's. I don't remember the Fireside too much, other than the really cool lines of the outside and the ceiling inside. The Gobbler on the other hand was amazing. It still had some of the original carpet/vinyl etc. It was so over the top, even as a kid around 6, I was mesmerized by the place. I have a picture from the visit I'll dig up. In the mean time check out this site on the Gobbler.
