The Rockford Files - Episode: Backlash of the Hunter "Old World Restaurant"


 
 
Here is another location we need help with.
The Old World Restaurant, most likely in Los Angeles but there is a chance it isn't also.
Anybody remember this place and where it was located???

DING DING DING! We have another place identified by a blog viewer!
Old World Restaurant is now the Red Rock Restaurant located at
8782 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, West Hollywood, CA.
I personally wish to thank the alert viewer who sent us this information!

A similar angle of the Old World Restaurant on Sunset Blvd. from 1973 can be seen at this link:

Toward the center of the photo, you can see the "Right Turn Only" sign and the "Stop" sign near each other as seen in the episode.

(However, you can't use any of the pics on that site unless you pay a fee.)

"There used to be a restaurant called the Old World Restaurant on Sunset (where Red Rock is now) and in Westwood..."

The chowhound link also appears in a brandland article on Rockford locations as well as product branding in the series:
