Chili Bowls of California

There are four surviving Chili Bowl restaurant buildings in southern California [and none of them sell chili]. There's Kim Chuy, a Chinese restaurant in Alhambra; Guadalajara de Noche, a nightclub in Huntington Park; Valley Dealer Exchange, a car dealership in Glendale; and Mr. Cecil's California Ribs in Los Angeles, which closed in 2012.

Former Chili Bowl Restaurant

Now a nightclub, the building used to be part of a local fast food chain, called the Chili Bowls, back around the 1920s. All of the buildings were shaped like bowls of chili.
