Learned last night that "Mr Stox" located in Anahiem,California,approx. 1 mile from the Disneyland Resort will close early next year to make way for high end condos. So sad!!!
Mr Stox,opened in 1968 but, operated since 1977 by the Marshall family,is world famous. People from around the world come to enjoy not only the food,wine, but know alot of the crew,who have worked 20/25 years at Mr Stox.
Working at Club 33 as the bartender,I would pass by Mr Stox on the way home. Tired of fighting the rush hour traffic, decided one day to stop and see if they were in need of a great bartender,me!! After a short interview with the owners, I started my 15 year employment . Working mostly nights, 5p.m. to 10 p.m., I have come to love this place.
On the sign out front, Mr Stox, fine dining,valet parking, this resturant lives up to it's name. At most resturants,when asking for the wine list, most if not all, are usually one to three pages. Not at Mr Stox, it's like a novel,approx. 25 to 30 pages,weights about 3 or 4 pounds. The menu, from prime rib (aged 45 days),to crabcakes,nightly dinner specials,salmon,pasta,chicken,veggie menu,was wonderful!! Holiday seasons, Mother Day and Easter the menu would reflect that time. And the bread,ask anyone who has experinced it, is over the top. Sourdough,Sunflower,Beet Red bread and seasonal breads were baked fresh daily in the back. Entering the building to work, one would past the trays of hot bread, cooling waiting to be enjoyed with wiped butter!!!!! Oh yes, those fresh cookies,WOW!
Guests will not forget those wine dinners,Hollywood Bowl tours, the Ronald Reagan Musuem tours,Getty Tours, and those annual Xmas party's and summer pinic/Angel baseball games for the crew.
In closing,two things here!
First of all,go to their web site....Mr Stox.com
I think just by reading it, you will be impressed.
Secondly,travel to Southern California and experience first hand what I am trying to express....
