Around 1966 I dated a chick that worked there. She was a car hop and went to Marshall. You are not going to believe this...she dumped me too. Fun times, those.

My Cleveland High girlfriend DB and I used to go to The Speck two or three times a week. We'd call in our order and have our food delivered to the car by the roller skating carhop.

DB would always order fries and gravy. I don't know if that was an Eastside thing or maybe just a Speck thing, but I'd never heard of it on the Westside. Maybe one of you Eastsiders can tell me.

Joel...I remember it from Yaw`s in the early 60`s. May have been a copycat thing. I always enjoyed them. Don`t know if it was a East side thing but I never had them at any drivein on the West side. That help? Didn`t think so.

They had a Yaws on west side. It never clicked like in Hollywood district.

Lee, believe it or not, I ate at Yaw's only once. When I was a kid my folks decided to take us there for dinner. DB was an Eastsider, but she never had any interest in Yaw's, although it was still open during the two-and-a-half years we dated.

I know I read somewhere that Yaw's claimed "gravy fries" as their own but at The Speck, they were always "fries with gravy." Subtle, huh?

to my recollection this was never a Yaws site
