This was Bahooka's original location, in West Covina. Bahooka was started by two brothers and a sister in 1967, one of the brothers—Jack—had worked for 10 years at Kelbo's. The building was expanded over the years, which was ultimately its downfall—it grew over a property line, and in the ensuing dispute, Bahooka lost its lease. In 1980, the building was demolished. Four years earlier a second Bahooka location had been opened in Rosemead, and that location stayed in operation until January 2013.
