Delve into the memories, meals and the men and women behind Fairfield’s beloved former dining spots, from the Firehouse Deli-Café to the Hi-Fi Drive-In and beyond. Since the city’s incorporation in 1903, its restaurants have reflected the simple tastes of suburban life, serving up something for everyone. Longtime residents knew that the best Mexican food north of Tijuana could be found at Dan & Ruth’s Café. Voici, where the movers and shakers met, claimed the crown as swankiest spot in town. Smorga Bob’s, the buffet-style family restaurant where locals could let their hair down and get their grub on, is missed to this day. Join longtime Daily Republic columnist and accidental local historian Tony Wade on a delicious tour of bygone eateries.
