    In the 1980s they were making TV commercials with Mel Tillis. LOL!

    Despise seeing adds for chains we don't have here yet. Especially including Whataburger.
    Sorry unca Ralphie but maybe the new owners might be amiable to putting one on a corner near you.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Then again we do have the Waffle House ( all roads lead to the Waffle House ).

    And White Castle ( you ain't lived until you've been to White Castle during 2 am bar rush )

    We have White Castle in Detroit, but not Waffle House. They start showing up in Southern Ohio.

    Don't know yet, especially if the new ownership deal goes through.

    There was a front page story in the local fishwrap about such a thing about a year ago. The franchises that people in our metro area of 2/3 million desire most that aren't here already. Used that as a bonus trivia question. I'll see if I have that file here at work & share it.
