Los Angeles: Dining with Reservoir Dogs

Los Angeles: Dining with Reservoir Dogs

Pop Pilgrims
Season 1

There are plenty of Quentin Tarantino pilgrimages to be made in Los Angeles, but Pat & Lorraine's Coffee Shop holds the distinction of being the first location in a Tarantino movie. It's the diner from Reservoir Dogs, where a color-coded group of criminals meets to discuss, among other things, Madonna's "Like A Virgin" and the virtues of tipping. We tracked down an old friend of Quentin's, who told some stories about the origins of some of that famous dialogue. And a current waitress expressed gratitude at the film's ultimate pro-tipping stance.
