California's Gold with Huell Howser

California Restaurants

Huell visits two California restaurants that are great examples of "California's Gold". Fosters Freeze has been a tradition since 1946 when George Foster opened his first store and the company now owns over ninety locations and has become a California favorite. Founded by the five Havadijas brothers, the first Farmer Boys restaurant opened its doors in Perris, California in 1981. Their generous portions and farm-fresh food quickly gained a loyal following and at last count there were 68 Farmer Boys restaurants at locations all over Southern and Central California and in Nevada.
