Drove to Sonic Restaurant

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

How much less?



Well if I cared less I wouldn't post at all, so at least that much.

Do I really exhibit a world class snottiness? As a blunt fan, earning his disdain was not on my agenda.

They told me to stop posting on the forum, and maybe they were right.

Didn't think you'd really pulled a poetry ref from 1990. But I found the parallels eerie.

OK, Ned, I'll bite...
I just got back from Dallas. Drove there for a Whataburger. Oh. What a burger!!!

Much easier to drive to the Windy City for a White Castle.

Ha! Let me school you! I just got back taking my DeLorean for a spin to pick up Super Shef, shake & fries from the Burger Chef located at the intersection of Highway-1976 & I-1983. Yum.

...Jeff gave me a complimentary blow-job and I loaded up on pickles from the fixin's bar.

Used to live in Davenpork, IA. Terrible place.

There wasn't a Sonic back then. It was one of the chains I was a mystery shopper for in the nineties. They certainly do know what a quickie burger is all about.

I worked for a Henry's Hamburger franchise in Burlington, Iowa, in 1971.
Ran across the last surviving store of that chain, in 1996, in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

Here's a cute site on those:

I can't help myself. I'm on a roll...must apologize...
I flew to Tennessee (lived there) to go to Jack-In-The-Box. What other burger joint serves tacos?

And, drove to Marquette, MI to go to Big Boy. The strawberry pie is to die for.

I must quit now. I am having way too much fun.

El Pollo Loco has tacos but it's a chicken place

God, what ever happened to all of the Marc's Big Boys that used to be around Wisconsin? I really miss the Slim Jim, that was my favorite thing on the menu.
