Quincy's Family Steakhouse, 2515 Sunset Boulevard   13 comments

Posted at 11:59 pm in historic,restaurants

This Quincy's, which now houses a Maurice's Barbeque, was I think the first in town to close. The way I recall it, and I'm very often wrong about anything involving dates or time, this one went first, the one on Forest Drive went second, and the one on Two Notch went last.

This Quincy's was on the far side of town from us, and I think I only ate here once, when we were coming back from the airport -- it was fine. I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to check out a surviving Quincy's in Florence at US-52 & I-95. It was not as nice as I recall the Two Notch store being in the beginning, but it was perfectly acceptable.

  1. There was a Quincy's on Piney Grove Road, but it was closed a bit before, wait for it, San Jose moved in, adding strength to Alex's claim.

  2. I think the first Quincy's in town to close was probably the Forest Drive location around '98. The others lasted until 2000, and pretty much either closed, or became Western Sizzlin's for a short while, before the Sizzlin's eventually closed. I also think that in 2000 the remaining stores closed or were converted in pretty short order.

  4. I ate there once or twice, my father used to go there when I was younger. Times change and I guess taste in restaurants change as well.

  5. I think the whole Quincy's franchise shut down. I know the Quincy's in Sanford FL, (a suburb of Orlando) became a Winghouse. Which is a small chain in Orlando.

  8. That I-95 and US 52 intersection seems to have a knack for holding on to things the longest. Isn't that the location of a Thunderbird Motor Inn that is still kicking? And something else along tose lines, too.

  10. Although time and preferences change a lot, does anyone know of a strong reason why the Quincy´s chain has closed?

  11. Well, I don't think the "Big Fat Yeast Rolls" commercials helped. Just aside from being lame, never pitch your restaurant using the word "fat".

  12. There appears to be one still in operation in Florence; http://www.florencequincys.com/

    Quincy's was OK and a room-mate of mine use to drag me out to these steak-houses from time to time. Quincys was OK. All the other ones tasted like they fried their steaks in the same place they fried their liver.

  13. I worked at the one on Rosewood in my Junior and Senior year of high school in 88-89. I also worked for the same manager on Piney Grove in 91. It was the most fun job I ever had in my 25 years of working. Just couldn't stand smelling like the place when I left.
