Patrick’s Roadhouse Closes, Seeks Donations to Help Secure New Lease

A GoFundMe Has Been Created to Save the Dining Outpost, Which Has So Far Raised Funds by 182 Donors

By Zach Armstrong

Patrick’s Roadhouse, a dining landmark located along Pacific Coast Highway at the intersection of Entrada Drive, is at risk of permanent closure, and it’s asking for help to prevent that from happening.

“You’ve probably heard by now that Patrick’s Roadhouse is presently shut down over the last 48 hours.” the establishment stated in a Facebook post. “We’re battling with our landlord for rent due during covid. As you may remember we were only open for food to go and essentially just gave away the food we had to doctors and nurses and students who were locked up at school. The bill has now become due and we really need the help of everyone that has touched the hearts of Patrick’s Roadhouse.”

According to the post, the establishment is working with owner Anthony Fischler and his legal team to secure a new long-term lease. A GoFundMe has been created to save the dining outpost, which has so far raised funds via 182 donations at the time of this writing.

Its goal is to raise $250,000, with $200,000 allocated for back rent and the remaining funds for building improvements. “The business has operated profitably for nearly a half century and we want to see it continue on, making great food and great memories for all who visit,” the post stated. Additionally, it also seeks to resolve its financial woes with the help of a group of private angel investors and longtime customers.

At the time of this writing, $15,430 has been raised out of its $250,000 goal.

Established in 1973, Patrick’s Roadhouse is known for its “quirky” and “retro” decor. These include dinosaurs, Native American and Albert Einstein statues and unique rooftop sculptures. It has been featured in episodes of Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” and has been awarded several accolades including “Best Diner in California” and “Best Banana Cream Pie in the USA”, according to the GoFundMe.
All funds raised will be returned to donors if a new lease is not negotiated. Patrick’s Roadhouse is indefinitely closed until then.
