Classic Gilley’s Segment on Phantom Gourmet Will Make You Crave a Burger
The video from 2001 also includes a great interview with the owner.
If you're not hungry now you will be after watching this Phantom Gourmet segment featuring Portsmouth's classic greasy spoon. The favorite spot among the night owls has been at its Fleet St. location since 1974.
It's a good thing they moved too...save a little coin on parking tickets. Apparently Gilley's holds (or did hold) the world record for most consecutive parking tickets.
Love the part about customers learning how the door works. We've all been there. Before 10:00 p.m. it's easy to figure out. Around midnight and later it gets a little harder.
If Phantom Gourmet were to do an updated version of the video it would surely include the awesome news that after 104 years Gilley's now accepts credit cards.
