55 Year Reunion Announcement!

Friday,  June  4,  2021

bugsbunnyyy's Bills Paradise Today album on Photobucket


Disregard the 55 Year Reunion Announcement Title, we needed space to post Bill's Paradise picture. The picture you see is Bill's Paradise as it looks today, now called Tam's Burgers,located on the corner of Beverly Blvd & Hendricks across the street from Eastmont Jr
High



Dedicate to Mr. Bill Barton & Carolyn Barton Clausen (daughter of Bill Barton) Class of 1966


History of Bill's Paradise

Bill Barton opened 'Bill's Paradise' in 1939 in a Trolley Car located on the corner of Brooklyn & Rowen in East Los Angeles. He then moved the business to Bonnie Beach & 3rd in East Los Angeles & then to Pomona & Garfield in Montebello. Bill then built & opened his final location on Beverly & Findlay in Montebello. He closed the business in November 1979. Bill finally retired after 40 years in business at the age of 72 years old, after working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day.


Bill's Paradise - History Timeline

1939 - 1941 Brooklyn & Rowan - East Los Angeles
1942 - 1952 Bonnie Beach & 3rd - East Los Angeles
1953 - 1960 Pomona & Garfield - Montebello
1961 - 1979 Beverly & Findlay - Montebello


Bill attended our Montebello Class Reunions as an Honored Guest in 1996 & 2000. He passed away on September 3rd, 1 month after he attended our 2000 reunion at the age of 93 years old.

' BILL BURGER '

This is the recipe for making the famous & some say it was the best hamburger ever. The ingredients are fresh and simple. The stacking order is crucial.

INGREDIENTS

1 - Hamburger bun - (Plain)
2 - Hamburger patties (3 oz ea - Special fresh ground Chuck lean beef patties, especially made for Bill's Paradise only)
2 - American cheese slices (thick)
1 - Iceberg lettuce (fresh, 2-3 leaves picked & torn to bun size)
1 - Tomato slice (1 large or 2 small slices)
3 - Dill pickles (hamburger dill chips)
Mayonnaise & yellow mustard
Salt & pepper
Sliced onion (add by special request only)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Grill 2 patties & cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side
2. Lightly add salt & pepper on top of the 2 patties
3. Flip the patties over & place one slice of cheese on each one. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
4. Lightly toast the both halves of the hamburger bun, face down on the grill.
5. Assemble the burger in the following order from bottom up:

Bottom toasted bun
Spread mayonnaise & a splash of yellow mustard
Lettuce
Tomato
Pickles
Onion slice (add by special request only)
Hamburger patties with cheese stack
Top toasted bun.

Makes one delicious ' Bill Burger '

Never used shredded lettuce.
I fact when we had time before the rush hours, we prepped what my Dad called set-ups. We got the fresh iceberg lettuce leaves torn to burn size & put the Tomato on top ready to put it on the hamburger.
It was very important to my Dad to have a very nice presentation of the Bill Burger ingredients once it was half wrapped.

BILL'S PARADISE - Speciality Menu Items

Bill's 'Special Creations'

* Soft Tostada (Tostada made in a tortilla)
* Four Finger Dog (Burger made with 2 cut in half grilled weenies with cheese)
* Mexican Bill Burger (Bill Burger made in a tortilla instead of the hamburger bun)
* Tacos (Fried & was the first to put cheddar cheese on top)
* Hot Sauce (Bill's secret recipe)
* Golden Boy Burger (Bill Burger with 3 hamburger patties & cheese was a secret item not on the menu made especially only for the Vietnam Servicemen & Vets)
