An article written by Los Angeles Times writer Daniel Yi describes changes taking place at Cook's Corner. If you're not familiar with Cook's Corner it's a road house located in Orange County, California. Bikers from Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, and other parts around, make Cook's Corner a riding destination.

A few months ago, it was bought by a couple of Greek business partners. They've replaced the paper plates with dishes, hired a new cook, and apparently improved the pastrami sandwich.

According to the article, they:
are focused on cleaning up the place. They've ordered 170 new barstools, and the graffiti-ridden bathrooms are next in the list of improvements.

"We are keeping it the same," said Katelaris, "but making it nicer."
It's actually pretty good read. There's quite a bit of history going back to the 1930's.

I was actually at Cook's Corner today, having ridden there with a few of my riding buddies. The place was just packed solid. There was easily 300 bikes there, maybe 400, along with cars parked all the way up Live Oak Canyon road. A bluegrass band was playing there.

As the article said, they've replaced the paper plates with "real" plates. I hadn't noticed this today, but having read the article now, sure enough, I remember everything being on paper plates. The place could definitely use a bigger restroom. Pissing in that trough full of ice cubes with 2 or 3 guys in there gets too personal for my comfort. In fact if they added more parking, that would be the biggest improvement. And then get more tables, more patio covering, more room for vendors, and I'm not sure there would be a more popular biker hangout in all of Southern California.
