To all of you on the Eastern Seaboard: In-n-Out Burgers are as good as they say and the fries are even better - I think they're fried in peanut oil or at least a better-than-average oil. .

My husband owns an IN-N-OUT Burger t-shirt, and we must go there each time we are out West. Last October, we stopped at one while driving from LA to Vegas. The very best milkshake.

"Steak and Ale" That place seems to be hanging on..

Remember the "Beef and Bottle"? (Olga's favorite)

"Martha's Vineyard"?

"What's your Beef"? (I remember going there with family years, and years ago, we did this "birthday" thing, all I remember about the place were bad bookcases all around, and a fake fireplace..)

Ed,
What was the name of the Mexican place right before Willowbrook, that is now the "Lone Star"? You remember that?
The place was done up inside like an old Leone/Eastwood spaghetti western set..
I was expecting Eli Wallach to pop out at some point behind one of the stucco walls..

Great hot apple wrap dessert with fresh cinnamon though..

Red Robin anyone?

I never heard of this place, and now BAM! We've got about six of 'em around this area.

$7 hamburgers...


The one time I went there I was not impressed.

"What's your Beef" in Fairfield (New Dutch Lane) is now a Charlie Browns. One of the best salad bars I've ever been to. Certainly not fast food, but good food at a decent price.

It appears as though the "Anthony Wayne" on Rt46 adjacent to the Wayne DMV is no more. The place has been vacant of any activity for weeks, and in passing by on my way to work every day, I've seen several ominous makeshift signs nailed up on the building.

My, how time goes by..

The Robin Hood Inn.. RIP
The place looked like the Ponderosa from Bonanza to me as a little kid..Now, It's been transformed into "Vito Tutaguandas Escarole and Beans."

I'm also a fan of RAX; it's still around: http://www.rax-online.com/

Clock restaurants. A diner chain like Denny's and the previously mentioned Sambo's. Don't know if this chain existed outside of Florida, but there were quite a few of them when I was a widdle kid. Don't recall seeing any after the early eighties. Dana, you probably remember them.

I do remember Sambo's from when I was a kid in the early '70s, living in the west and midwest, so it wasn't just a southeastern thing, though that might have been where it stayed around longest. Yes, the mascot was offensive.

I can also verify Dana's confirmation of the continued survival (health, even?) of Hardee's and Miami Subs; the former I've seen in Florida pretty regularly since coming to this state from Germany in '87, and Tallahassee has at least two Miami Subs places (though apparently no Hardee's within the city limits, oddly enough, as far as I can tell).

When I lived in Monterey, California around 1975, there was a restaurant called 'The Clock' and it was very popular, but I don't know if it was part of a chain or not. I never saw another restaurant in California with that name.

*BUMP* Check out this chick! (circa 1976)



I'm not exactly lamenting those 1970s Burger King (chain began in Miami) uniforms, one of those strange lifemoments that I can recall with complete clarity is the first time I ever set foot into a Burger King and seeing the 1970s teen beauty speaking into the front mike as I shyly gave her my order... Sad but true!

Anybody here remember "Lum's" with their famous "hot dogs steamed in beer?"

Oh, my, yes! The last beer boiled hot dog I had WAS at LUM'S, around 1990. There may be one of those restautants in Miami. And there is!

And, in a recent search on the always-reliable wikipedia, there's allegedly a Mister Donut about three miles from my home!

Geez, people, don't you know this food is bad for you. Ever read "Fast Food Nation"? I would not mind if all these fast food restaurants went the way of the dodo.

Reminds me of the guy who went on a 1-month trial period of eating nothing but McDonalds food. If asked if he wanted to supersize it, he had to say yes. Had to eat everything. After a while, his doctor told him to quit because his body was going through organ failure. No lie!

Oh please. Just because you don't like
something, you have to take away everyone
else's fun? Besides, nobody lives forever.
Might as well get some enjoyment while
we're here.

SONIC RULES! Try their breakfast burrito.
Yummy!

My favorite restaurant ever was this joint in Washington DC called (and I swear I'm not making this up) "Wok 'n' Roll". I was a greasy-spoon (or maybe "greasy chopstick") joint that I wound up taking carry-out from once or twice a week. It was dirt cheap. and probably hazardous to my health, but oh so delicious!!!!
