Miami Area RESTAURANTS, Drive-Ins, Bars, Lounges, Liquor Stores, Clubs, Strip Joints, etc. Gallery - All Years - click to view

An important part of growing up in the Miami area were the restaurants, drive-ins, bars, lounges, etc. that we dined in and drank in. The images of Hialeah dining and drinking establishments are in the Hialeah Gallery. Please scroll below the photos to see additional comments for some of the photos.

For those of you who are new to computing and/or surfing the internet, this is just one page of many pages of photos on this site. The home page for our Old Hialeah/Old Miami galleries is at http://www.pbase.com/donboyd/memories and all the oldie galleries spin off from that page. You can also click on the yellow colored >>Memories of Old Hialeah, Old Miami and Old South Florida Photo Galleries << at top of any page to get back to the main oldies page to search other galleries.

8/29/17: in order to reduce the number of photos on this page, and in an effort to organize restaurants better, I have created separate galleries for certain specific restaurants and those galleries are now at the top of this page followed by the regular page which has the huge variety of independent restaurants/bars/etc.
