Totonno's Pizza in Brooklyn is a relative youngster (1924), though I think they were closed for a while due to a fire.

Lagomarcino's in Moline, Illinois has been around since 1908.  It's the only ice cream in the area that can hold a candle to Whitey's.

Two of my San Francisco favorites are quite elderly...Tadich Grill 1849 and Swan Oyster Depot 1912. I would have no problem alternating between those two for my only meals for the rest of my life.

We had a waiter that I do believe dated back to opening day @ Tadich Grill.

Was he at least competent and did you get the sand dabs?

Interesting, that is the one dish I've had at Tadich Grill that I did not like.  And it is the dish I liked most at Sam's.

Well then...for a more meaningful comparison I'll try the sand dabs at Sam's next time. I had sweet breads my last visit and they were great.

I had Crab & Lobster Thermidor @ Tadich Grill...which was wonderful.



As far as the service...

The busboy was very professional & cordial & saved the day when it came to being a buffer for some of the bizarre service from the waiter. The waiter was very abrupt & surly. He slammed my drink down on the table so hard I think the ice cubes are still in the air. That was something to navigate for about 75% of the experience. At that point (after getting no reaction from either one of us...& realizing we were having a good time laughing about the steak fries) the tide turned & he decided to become my dearest best friend. He had me by the arm trying to get me to promise to come back again.

Out of the twelves or thirteen places visited in San Francisco last year...that was the only somewhat crazy experience. The other two upscale places (House of Prime Rib & Yank Sing) were both stellar in terms of food & service.

I didn't read about Tadich Grill on Yelp before visiting because I always read positive things here about the service.

There are countless reviews on Yelp that mirror the less than wonderful parts of that experience It's an expensive restaurant & it should be mentioned for anyone who is considering a visit. It's a good thing to be prepared just in case it gets a little bizarre.

Did you say sweetbreads?  OMG, I love them.  I have cooked them many times, but not for MH because he doesn't care for them.  I have to find a restaurant that does them properly.  Biba (in Boston, now closed) did serve some spectacular grilled sweetbreads.

Sure enough; it's over 90 years old.

The Nagelin Bakery in New Braunfels has been around since 1868 and is the oldest bakery in Texas. There are probably very  old places in San Antonio;Austin;etc. I just don't know all their names and dates.Been awhile since I've been to Nagelin's may have to make a trip up there. It's only about 12 miles or so from me.
It sits near the traffic circle by the Comal County courthouse downtown.

I used to live in Valencia near the oldest restaurant in L.A. County. The Saugus Cafe opened in 1899, right across from the railroad tracks. I still have memories of being there for breakfast on a weekend morning and watching a locomotive stop right across from the restaurant. As we looked out the window, the engineer got out, ran across San Fernando Road and came in to place an order. A little while later, he went back across and the train proceeded to start moving again. 
 
Here's the history of the Saugus Cafe.

Your link is to a Place  called Tommy's, But I'm glad to see you referring to Cincinnati chili as Greek, but you left out "meat sauce."

Yikes, Michael, that's what I get when I try copying and pasting on too many things at once! Change noted and made....I think you'll find the link about the Saugus Cafe interesting. It's right where SR126 ended at the Old Road/San Fernando Road. Thanks for pointing it out!
 
BTW, if you're talking about where I am thinking about the "meat sauce", I think I actually called it "meat gravy". I know, not close enough!
