Burger King anybody?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes my local Burger King accepts expired coupons. I wonder what they would say if I printed these off and turned one in at the drive-thru. The reaction might be worth it.

LOL!  It would be better to try this driving an 80's car with an 80's outfit on.  Ha ha.  Order something they no longer sell, like a "Whaler".

This is priceless. Our Burger King is not that great. The "grilled" meat tastes fake and nothing like it use to. The Burger King in my hometown you could watch your burger being grilled. The nice thing about our Burger King? A soda fountain than can produce over 120 different flavors of soda. Touch screen operated!

 

I never knew BK had a salad bar either. I knew Wendy's did at one time but not sure if they still do or if it depends on region. But, yea, I would enjoy seeing photos or videos of someone in an all Eighties setup using those coupons lol. Might want to change the address in those coupons before using them, though.

Restaurant Rewind posted a Burger King history video the other day. Did you know there is "another Burger King"? I never knew this. This is a cool video and a very interesting YouTube channel to follow if you're interested in the history of restaurants.

This reminds me of a story from my local town.  A grocery store chain started growing...they wanted to build a store in the suburbs that was the size of an entire block.  So they bought all the houses on the block EXCEPT one!  That one guy would not sell.  So they built the store right around this poor saps house!  No back yard...or next door neighbors....just wall of the store.  This was back in the 60's, and that house remained occupied by the stubborn owner for another 30 years!  Let me find a picture.....

A very similar story actually happened with two small townhouses that refused to sell when they built Rockefeller Center. They're still there!
