    I wonder if they taste anything like cheeseborgers.

    Then I would assume the drink special is not Coke, but Pepsi.

    What was it about Arctic Circle burgers? They had a, um, unusual flavor that I can’t quite pinpoint.

    There was an Arctic Circle across from my junior high school, back in 1923, ’24. Can’t recall when I last saw one.

    When I was in college the local Hardees had a chain conveyor with a bucket on it for the drive up. You placed your order and put your money in the basket. It went straight up the wall and through a hole just below the roof line. Your food ad change came back to you the same way. I have never seen another one like it, either before or in the 35+ years since.

    That's the kangaroo meat they used instead of beef. :D

    The better days may be past, Bob, but it sure looks like a good one was had exploring what's left of the place. That's an awesome find.

    When matters have deteriorated to that degree, it could be argued that it’s a service to “salvage” what remains that is still worth salvaging.

  19. A local joint from 1952 - 1957. I think the @Fading Fast s are just out of sight in the corner making their juke box selections.

    I thought this one interesting, so looked on Google maps. It is still there! The Google map said 2019, so at least then. Grown up really bad, but you can pick out the restaurant and the building/rooms behind.
