An in mall location, the Cerritos Restaurant opened in 1972--about a year after the Los Cerritos Mall's grand opening. Predating the development of food courts, shopping malls often featured family type restaurants and cafeterias.

A handful of Howard Johnson's were located in malls primarily in California. The Cerritos unit remained a HoJo's until at least 1985, and by the middle 2000s its spot had been converted into a Red Robin.
