Ok, this is funny. I was actually watching Adam 12 and have been recording all of the addresses they take calls from to map out the area they patrolled on the TV show (talk about too much time on your hands!!). I am also interested in the historical places in the show and just saw Biff’s in Season 1, Episode 25. This is about the 3rd episode I have seen it in in Season 1. If I see it in more episodes, I’ll post here so you can see your Dad’s restaurant and keep a record of when they appeared in Adam-12. 🙂
Sorry, I just saw this post.
I would like to see what area they responded to calls in. I think that’s a neat idea!! Reminds me of the scene in the first Terminator when the evil Arnold hears on the police scanner the address on “Olympic – pronounced by the dispatcher “Olym-Pick.” Cameron probably took the idea for the scene from Adam-12.
Thanks for posting the episode!! It’s pretty clear the officers had ZERO counseling skills!! Interesting to see the second Darin of Bewitched too! It must have been before he got the Bewitched gig!

In reality they would have stayed close to the studio to keep costs down. From watching Season 1 episode 25, I can’t tell if Biff’s is the North Hollywood Biff’s or the Hollywood Biff’s which was close to the Capitol Records Building. It probably was the Hollywood Biff’s which might have been closer to the TV studio. But I KNOW at some point they filmed Adam-12 INSIDE the North Hollywood Biff’s also because when my crazy cousin who lived in North Hollywood took us kids there to eat (aprox 1964) the waitresses were talking about it with us.
At the Hollywood Biff’s my Dad would play Frank Sinatra’s new song “Strangers in the Night” on the rather large jukebox that sat toward the back of the coffee shop.
