Jon-Jon's Southern Style Cuisine on Post (El Dorado).
Jon-Jon's appropriately hunkers under a gold bank building.
A Louisiana boy describes Jon-Jon's
as akin to walking into a time warp with transportation services
to a bona fide Southern rib joint.
An anonymous soul overheard the following
"the guy behind the counter
was talking about a "House of Blues" coming to the
neighborhood and speculating that it might cut into business.
I assumed he meant a franchise of L.A.'s "House of Blues,"
which is owned by Dan Akroyd or something like that. He seemed
to be grumbling about the City Council or redevelopment agency
. . . wanting to give preferential treatment, and getting on
his case because Jon Jon's has a BBQ smoking behind the building."
Update: Jon-Jon's is long gone-gone
now. Another local business on the barbie.
Faint music is heard on El Dorado
St. . . . spirts guffawing.
