With a nod to its past — serving classic family friendly American fare with colorfully clad carhop waiters/waitresses on roller skates back in the 1950s and 1960s — Twoheys Restaurant in South Pasadena has recently revived the nostalgic tradition by debuting a new Curbside Carhop — 21st century style. The newly opened restaurant, which has been making memories in the San Gabriel Valley since 1943, continues its legacy as one of Southern California’s well-known American eateries.
“We are proud to re-introduce the carhop dining concept that was first introduced by the Twohey family decades ago. We believe that bringing back this tradition allows diners to visit more often while enjoying our old time favorite/new menu items and practicing safety protocols from the safe haven of their own cars,” says co-owner Tanya Christos.
Loyal customers now have the convenience of ordering breakfast, lunch and dinner from Twoheys’ ToGo menus by calling 30 minutes in advance to place an order and reserving one of six designated parking spaces by calling (626) 284-7387 and pressing No. 1. Upon arrival at the restaurant, customers need to call back and let the restaurant know the number of the reserved carhop parking space. Staff will bring the ToGo food to each car on a classic carhop tray that clips to the vehicle’s window for a “contact-free,” but fun dining experience from the comfort of one’s car. The restaurant is open six days a week, except Tuesdays, from 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
Located in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley, connecting Pasadena, South Pasadena, San Marino and Alhambra, Twoheys is situated at 424 Fair Oaks Ave. in South Pasadena.
