As a young boy, Joseph Rooney was told the legend of “the crooked duck” by his uncle at the family’s summer house on Island Lake in Illinois. The legend is about a man who accidentally hit a duck while he was out water-skiing on the lake. Everyone on the boat was horrified at what they had just witnessed, and thought for sure he had killed the duck. As everyone sat there staring at the water in disbelief, and what they thought was a dead duck, it started to move. All of a sudden, it started to swim towards the shore in a very peculiar manner. When it reached the lake’s shore it waddled away, but it was quite obvious the duck’s neck was now crooked. The duck with the crooked neck was seen from time to time by people out on the lake, an acknowledgement to the resilience of a duck. Joey never forgot about the legend or the duck, and “The Crooked Duck” is his tribute to that duck!

Polly’s is a small privately owned family company doing business in Southern California for 50 years! It was founded by the Sheldrake brothers, Don & Eddie, who grew up in Los Angeles. Both went to Washington High School in L.A. Don went to Harbor Community College and Fresno State and Eddie used crib notes to get through UCLA. The first Polly’s was opened in Fullerton. The name Polly was chosen, in part, because the front doors of the restaurant had handles shaped like the letter “P,” and we wanted to use those handles. Eddie’s wife suggested the name “Polly’s” in honor of Polly Martin, who was the newborn daughter of the restaurant’s first manager. Later we adopted the name Polly’s Tasty Foods and Pies, then Polly’s Bakery Cafe, and currently we are known as Polly’s Pies Restaurant. But our guests often just call us Polly’s or Polly’s Pies. We built a loyal clientele by serving outstanding pies, hamburgers and sandwiches and in doing so, you’ll find a special friendliness not found in other restaurants. Polly’s in Fullerton also became a commissary that provided top quality dinner rolls, tangy coleslaw and the BEST pies for our restaurants. Now, there are 15 Polly’s serving communities throughout Southern California, with more new locations on the drawing boards.
