History

This building was probably constructed between 1910 and 1925. The Sanborn Fire Insurance map for 1903 shows a one-story store at this address. In the 1926 map there is a two story store. For many years this building housed a succession of grocery stores serving the Rondo neighborhood. According to city directories, these included:

  • Samuel Unovich grocery in 1930
  • Jack Diamond grocery in 1935 to 1946
  • Credjafawn Co-op Store in 1948
  • Joseph H. Martin grocery, later Martin's Market in 1949 and 1955

After years serving as a corner grocery store this building became a restaurant. Among the eateries housed here were:

  • Just Right Bar-B-Q Restaurant in 1960
  • Celebrity Cafe in 1965 and 1970
  • Jose's Old Southern Bar-B-Q in 1975

In the 1980 and 1985 directories the building was listed as being empty. The site is now part of a large housing development.
