It’s a place that has been serving up meals for 75 years, is known for its traditional fare – the original Stinko Burger and ice cream sundaes among the more popular items – and has a solid and longtime following.

Twohey’s, just across town in Alhambra, is officially closing its doors at its current location on Feb. 1.

Restaurant officials say they are not renewing their lease on the property at the intersection of Huntington Dr. and Atlantic Blvd., explaining they were unable to work out an agreement.

Sadly, Twohey’s spokesperson Jim Christos said the lease cannot be extended and thanked the City of Alhambra, his loyal workers, and family and friends who have supported the eatery over the years.

Twohey’s originally opened its doors in Pasadena in 1943 before moving to its present location a year earlier.

While the Twohey’s in Alhambra is closing, ownership recently opened Twohey’s Tavern at 2835 E Foothill Blvd. in Pasadena. In a comfortable setting, it features salads, burgers, and traditional home-style dinners, along with a wide range of beers, drinks and cocktails.
