Carl's jr finally closed up
 
(move this to food or wherever it needs to be )

the local carl's jr. closed it's doors after learning the hard way
that high-end yuppie food joints don't do well in the "hood.
i'd never been there, and i just noticed today that they pulled
all the signage and the menu/microphone doo-dad from the
drive thru, and even the wires that would be sticking up are gone.
if you didn't already know it was once there, there'd be no
sign of anything to show that it ever was.
the only places that last around here have $1.00 menus and
cheap (chains) pizza joints, and good chicken joints.
many places have tried and failed in this area because they
don't realize that the hood rats want cheap volume and grease
and sugar. i'll bet more chips and candy are sold here than in
some small cities elsewhere.
the one i never figured is an ice cream place they had for a
very short while where they scooped out your gourmet ice
cream onto a piece of rock like a cutting board, and mashed it
around for a bit before putting it in your little dish.
what the bleepety-bleep is that all about ?

there used to be some really good bbq joints, and a few really
great hamburger joints, but they've mostly gone by the wayside.
the bbq places closed up because the men that opened them
had to work hard and be up at 3 and 4 in the morning to tend
to their meat and such, and when they died off, the heirs didn't
want to put in that kind of work and they couldn't make the grade
any more. most of the good hamburger places were just old
and a lot of the newer customers didn't like the old buildings
and expected alcoholic drinks with their meal. (even though this
particular area is dry) the food was still great, but i guess many
prefer ambience over the quality of food.

oh well. . . . .

Well, one of my dream foods appeared here in my small home town about a month ago.
A family of "real mescuns" moved a food trailer into an old car wash parking lot, and it's real mesclun food, not texmex. One of'em actually speaks English but, the mostly just hand you a menu.
I always laugh, cause they can't speak English, but they can damm sure count money.
Breakfast, dinner, and supper if Linda would let me.

it is irritating to go to a drive thru and have to repeat your order 3 or 4 times: they speak so fast and with such broken English it's difficult to understand them...:tango_face_sad:

there was a really good one up the street a ways here when
i worked up here at a fairly new dealer. it's now a bus depot
for bus express rides to mexico.
none of the restaurant employees spoke english, so when i
would stop in to pick up something, i'd ask for the telephono
por favor and call one of the other dept. yo-yos that could
speaka and have them tell the restaurant folks what we wanted
to order.
the food was excellent.
