Burbank, CA --- The venerable Smoke House restaurant is threatened by condo development.

The Smoke House in Burbank is possibly threatened by a condo development. The restaurant doesn't own the land in this case. Hopefully there would be a great deal of support to save it, with Warner Bros. directly across the street.

The Smoke House is one of the last of the steak-and-prime rib restaurants. All its counterparts such as Chadney's, Tail o' the Cock and Chadney's have become history. The Smoke House opened in 1946 by three engineers from Lockheed and has fed Lockheed executives and nearby Warner Bros. studio for decades. 07-03
