Bummer...as a kid pancakes were pancakes, so I didn't notice. Think I was more mesmerized by looking at the dancing neon blue flame sign they had out front! Plus, it was with Pops and nothing else mattered.

Anyone know if the Blue Flame in Clairton(?) is still open/any good?

I no longer live in the area but recall eating breakfast there at 0 dark thirty when I would occasionally go with my Dad to his jobsite at the Allegheny Mountain Tunnel project on the PA Turnpike in the mid '60's.

Great memories!

Also grew up in BP. Lived next to Logan Elem which I understand is now a retirement/old folks home. Moved away in the 7th grade back in 1968 and did not maintain contact with anyone other than relatives. What a fantastic place and time to grow up in, many many fond memories!
