    I guess it wasn't a problem an Ohio company buying a couple of your water parks. Look at it this way, Cedar Point will most likely improve them.

    Might even import some lake Erie water!

    EXACTLY the burger joint I was thinking of!! Best burger in the metroplex AFAIK and they make REAL onion rings from REAL onions. A chocolate malt is made with real ice cream (prolly Blue Bell) and real malt. Yummy. Just a few streets from me. (We are at Legacy/Indepedance) Next time you are planning a burger run let me know and the missus and I will join you if you'd like!

    All fast food places in the Permian Basin have usually been scraping the bottom of the barrel in relation to the workers they get. It has been that way for a number of years, so I don't really think it was just a "What-A-Burger" problem. I got the wife to agree to stop at a Wendy's a few years back. She ordered a Taco Salad, The gal behind the counter cut a hunk of lettuce off, put it in a bowl, then put a dipper in the Meat repository and ladled meat and at least half a ladle of grease along with the meat and handed it to her.

    We learned to take plenty of snacks and sandwiches when going to any ball games in Midland.

    Ate my only In and Out burger in Reno. Meh. Only What-a-Burger in Phoenix. Like McDonald's with more menu options. My choice? 5 Guys Burgers and Fries. Cooked after you order, garnished the way you want it. Only complaint is, some stores put too much salt on the fries. But, to quote Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction, it's a "tasty burger."

    Any restaurant, eatery or fast food, is usually only as good as it's manager, and the manager for chains, is only as good as the area manager, and the area manager is only as good as the upper crust management demand they be.

    Like others, I support the local owned mom and pops that are also the workers and management.

    I probably shouldn't even be posting on this thread as I haven't eaten at What-A-Burger in more years that I can remember. I can say the same for all the chain burger places. They all make horrible burgers! Dairy Queen may be the least worst. (Is that even English?) If we're on the road we try to stop at Mom and Pop places for a burger. At least you have a chance of getting something that resembles a burger.

    DQ, ah DQ, where have you gone?

    Back in the eighties, nineties, when I was still running the big road, there were two DQ's that were on my MUST stop list. the first one was in Phillipsburg, NJ, on old US Route 22, just to the east of town. Cleaner than you can imagine, food hot and fresh, always. and the "chili" was as good as anything this side of Amarillo.

    The other was up on top of the mesa, just east of Albuquerque. Room to park, and again so clean I expect you couldn't find a germ within a mile. And the food was beyond good - Great.

    Moving forward with our time machine, there hasn't been a DQ in my county here in PA (Pure Appalachia) since the last mom-n-pop franchisees retired, ten years ago. DQ finally opened a new one on one of the pad-sites at Wal Mart, and Mrs Flash and I decided to give it a try one evening in their third week of business. While waiting to place our order, I decided to go to the men's room. Door was locked, but in a minute, out walked the 'chef', drying his hands on his apron. As I went inside, I noticed that the urinal had not been flushed, neither had the crapper. And the sink and the spiggots were DRY. We left without further discussion, and haven't been back.

    Did I just spot a "Pulp Fiction" blooper? When Jules picks the burger up there are no bites taken out of it. When he does take a bite there seem to be a bunch of bites already bitten out of said tasty burger. Hmm....

    Thank God in my part of Texas there are options SO much better than Whataburger. I've been to Cali, and I must say In-n-Out makes a pretty good burger, but in my area...

    Blakes on Jeanetta

    Lankford Grocery near downtown

    Mel's in Tomball

    Any one of those burgers puts all the others in the dung heap.

    JMHO of course
