      Hello, I would have to agree with Bob. I have heard the story before. Our street sign uses the exact logo of that hotel. A multi colored mosaic of a Phoinix. The true story of its naming rests with Sam, sons Bill and Charlie. Who sadly all passed in a three year period. 93’94’96’. My hope is Bob and people like him continue to pass along the stories of our family 50 and 60 years later. Thank you,
      Tom Greco

      One of the best Broomall eateries! But I need to make one correction as I worked for the original owner in the late ’60’s. His name was Sam Greco and the story goes that he honeymooned with his wife in Las Vegas and stayed at a place called the Thunderbird. He liked the name so much that he gave it to this fine establishment!
