The way I remember it, The Spot was famous for Enchiladas before their rise to Burger fame. On a recent visit I had plans to relive the past with an Enchilada; but it is not even on the menu. The backup was an Asada Chimichonga; the presentation was very well done, but too many of the small Asada cubes contained gristle; marring the overall great taste. A double cheeseburger was also purchased; again, great taste but the bun did not last long at containing the insides; fortunately, they have forks. The chocolate Shakes and Malts are still some of the best.
Besides the desirable food, another reason we should continue returning to The Spot is to visit a part of history; that is left. In the 1950s and early 60s my family spent their summer vacations camping at the State Beach. During those happy times the Southern Pacific Railroad Station was just across the tracks from The Spot. The lemon packing sheds were a little east down the tracks from the Station. What a great smell; and there was a continuous supply of lemonade for us when we kids visited the packers. Across the street from The Spot on what is now the Tomol Interpretive Play Area was erected the seasonal Bingo Game. At the beach end of Linden Avenue on the same side as The Spot was the Beach Store. Out of all of these places, The Spot is the only one remaining. Maybe our patronage of the Spot will keep this bit of history in tact; and let the workers in that small building know we appreciate them.
