Walking through downtown San Diego recently, I happened to pass Kansas City Barbeque, so I got some pics.
Do you remember the hit movie Top Gun? The 80’s movie about Navy fighter pilots that turned Tom Cruise into a mega-superstar? You might recall the great sleazy bar scene, where Maverick and Goose sit at a piano and sing “Great Balls of Fire”. That was shot at this location! You might also remember the line spoken by Meg Ryan, “Goose, you big stud! Take me to bed now or lose me forever!” That was filmed in the dining area. The bar also appears at the end of the movie as “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” is heard playing on the jukebox.
Today you can eat some tasty barbeque while checking out a huge collection of memorabilia, a virtual shrine to Top Gun.
The above photo was taken around Christmas. I see Santa Pig!
