Where or what former building on El Camino Real was Big Al's Chicago style pizza located?

The Barron Park section of ECR used to have many noteworthy Palo Alto dining establishments like Rudolfo's, Rick's Swiss Chalet, Ming's, Horky's, Kirk's, Le Omelette, and the Chinese Kitchen.

Today and with the possible exception of Celia's and Fuki Sushi, there are no places worth dining at.

Oh cool, another "three-story mixed-use building" which will eventually consist of office space for start-ups, six "luxury" apartments and one low-income unit that probably won't be "luxury". Just what Palo Alto needs.

You didn't answer the question what will be there in the commercial units!
