Architectural Historian Richard Longstreth has written extensively on the history of 20th century commercial architecture. Of Johnie's Broiler (formerly Harvey's Broiler), he writes: "I have driven many hundreds of miles over the region's boulevards during the past twenty years and am inclined to believe that something of this caliber that is still readily identifiable is quite rare...there can be no question that a building of this type is a very important part of the regional landscape during the postwar era.
