Burger Time!

Growing up in Midland Texas in the 60's had its advantages. It was very easy to make friends and believe it or not, there was plenty to do if you were a young boy with lots of energy.

Midland is where I first started eating out at fast food restaurants. Dairy Queen and Burger Chef were the two main venues for most of the time I lived there. Burger Chef is no more as they closed their last restaurant down in 1996.

On the West Coast, In-N-Out Burger is a very popular chain and it reminds me a lot of Burger Chef, though I suspect In and Out Burger is considered more hip than Burger Chef ever was.

Not too different...

This is a 100 patty burger made at In-N-Out Burger. More details can be found here.

And, Burger Time was one of my favorite video games in the early 80's.
