Good old Spires. One of the many Spires Restaurants that once dotted the Southern California area was a few blocks away in Santa Fe Springs California. It was our ‘go to restaurant after church, youth athletic games and just about any activity. Most closed due...More

Came here with a multifamily group. Service was very accommodating. I appreciate the 70's decor of the diner, reminded me of how things used to be. Food was good/hearty. Prices were very fair. Overall, nice luncheon experience.

Want good food, quickly...head to Spires. It’s not fancy at all, in fact it’s definitely a bit old and outdated, but super friendly staff. We sat at the counter and was amazed at how fast the one cook was able to prepare meal after meal...More
