Wow! What a meaty ad! Now there's something to sink your teeth into.

Man, that Dobb's chain was really aiming to rival Don, Vic and Steve. Wonder if anyone of the family is still around.

Yes, Big Bro. The Dobb's Management company is around and they are the family as far as I can tell. Should someone want to dig deeper.

Gator Rob,

Nice find on that ad. At one point Uncle Trav put together a list of 10 possible Dobb's House Luau/Tiki restaurants. We can cross this one off the list as confirmed.

And this just in from Birmingham, Alabama. Here's an ad very similar to the ad that Rob posted. Finally proof that the building I always thought was a Tiki palace was once Dobbs House Luau!
