I can never see those little thin wavy vertical lines without thinking of Big Daddy Roth's use of lines like that. When he drew them, they were always accompanied by flies. Kind of funny in the food context.

tripped me out to see this... This place was my first job and remember both Ed and Bob very well. Ed was married to Bob's sister and they co-owned the place. I wonder if they are still alive and how they are? This was back in 1970/1971.

Greetings all !

I have been looking for somthing from the Pail for a long time ! I used to work at the Store in Glendale ( 1967-71)and then I later was the manager, I met my 1st wife there as she had applied for a job there. I was only 19 at the time, this place had the best chicken to be found anywhere !!!

I remember the home Store in San Bernando on 20 & E Street...We also made the best Cole Slaw in the World. Does anybody esle out there remmeber the Pail ?

I worked for mister schaffer in san bernardino for about 4 years in the late 60's and early 70's and also during that time cooked and managed glendale every sunday for a couple of years. Great place for a college kid to work and yes the chicken was the best ever.

My Mother worked there when I was little, around 1980. My family always talk about how great there chicken and gizzards was. Wish it was still around, it's hard to find any good fried chicken anymore, KFC has went down hill.

the best chicken in the world, there was a old yellow high chair in the san bernardino restaurant. my parents use to put me in,i was still going there into my 20's, the biscuits, fries,coleslaw and the crunchy crust that would fall to the bottom of the bucket,my parents would also buy me a frosted cookie when we left, we would drive from la mirada just to go there, now its just a vacant lot, i actually parked in the lot recently and remembered the good times there with my now deceased father

I am a good friend of the Schaffers. Bill owned the San bernardino store. The family lives in Newport beach area. I went to school for years with Rodger. It was a cool place back in the 70s the family is awsome. It would be nice to see one open up again.

Worked at the San Bernardino location. Really miss that place ...
If anyone knows Bill can they get the recipes? Obviously there are no plans on any stores being open anymore
