From the San Fernando Valley, the most convenient route to get to Interstate 15 to go to Las Vegas is via the Pearblossom Highway (then to the Victorville Road) in the Mojave Desert near Palmdale. The highway goes though the town of Littlerock and then through the town of Pearblossom. That was the route my daughter and I took to go to Las Vegas several days ago.
While we were driving through Pearblossom, we noticed that one of favorite eateries, Billy Boy's Cafe, was closed down. We used to stop in for breakfast whenever we went to Las Vegas or to Apple Valley. The prices there were reasonable, the food good and with generous portions.
It had been a few years since I last drove on the Pearblossom Highway. It appears, from what I have been able to ascertain, Billy Boy's Cafe has been closed for at least a year or two. The building is in a state of disrepair.
I will miss Billy Boy's Cafe. It was a convenient stop while driving through the desert.
