Tom and Happy Gallagher owned Uncle Tom's Cabins for some years in the 1950s (although the sign outside the building said 'Uncle Tom's). In the early 1960's Bernice and Alvin Quam took over ownership until the late 1960s when Happy and Tom bought it again and had it until the early 1970s. It was located at the present site of the Lodi City Hall. The above printed menu was from the 1960's and showed that breakfast could be ordered for 35-75 cents, a lunch sandwich for 35-65 cents and dinner would cost 90 cents for a hamburger to $2.40 for a large T-bone steak. Gallaghers became well know for their homemade food, especially the pies.
