LUAU IS CALLING YOU
The opportunity to "dine amid palms and pools and things Polynesian" drew customers to the Dobbs House Luau restaurant on Peachtree Road, across the street from Piedmont Hospital. Google map
Ads for an array of Atlanta's tiki-themed bars and restaurants from decades past (including several featuring Dobbs House Luau), can be seen here.
Also featured here is a fun
radio jingle made specifically for the Dobbs House Luau....the
opening lyrics even reference its exact address at 1999
Peachtree Road. The lyrics also refer to "this Dinkler
presentation" because Dinkler was the company that launched
the restaurant, before selling it to the Dobb family, who used
it as a blueprint for other Dobb's House Luaus in Memphis,
Birmingham, Charlotte, Dallas, Miami, Orlando and
Louisville. Thanks for this information (and the MP3)
goes to Sven Kirsten, author of the liner notes that
accompanied the excellent cd
SOUND OF TIKI, released on the German Bear Family label.
