RIP SLO Foothill McDonalds

On the KSBY news they reported that after 40 years, the McDonald’s on Foothill will close next year. Lack of a drive-thru, which is not allowed in SLO, is the reason given for closing the store.

I used to work at this McDonald’s when I was attending Cal Poly. That was 1979-1980. Below is a (not so great) photo showing McDonald’s behind the Cork and Bottle sign, taken in 1979. Anyone remember 110 cameras?

What memories….a bunch of us that worked the closing shift on weekends would walk over to the 24-hour laundromat next to Williams Bros after work to play Asteroids when it first came out.
