Yep, Barry, I remember those quite well, my wife worked there(at the one on west side of Ft.Worth) somewhere around 1971-72, we were just gettin started out, got married in '71. Their slogan was, Kip's,..... "Home of the Big Boy"
Frisch's Big Boy in the North.
Think about--McDonald's "Big Mac" is really a (poor) copy of the Kip's "Big Boy". I still remember the first time I ate a "Big Boy". Yeah, I'm 51.
My dad met my mom at at a Kips in in Dallas around 1961 where she was working as a waitress.
I just saw this on the Food Network (waiting for my favourite iron chef Bobby Flay to start cooking...incidentally Bobby is married to a lovely, sweet TEXAS chick with MUCHO 'tude.)Bob's Pantry in Glendale Ca. opened in 1936. In the late 30 when owner Bob Wian developed the double decker burger, it became known as Bob's Big Guy. In 1940, Wian began franchising as Big Boy allowing franchisees to choose the name of their restaurant, thus Kip's, Frisch's, Baker's, Dari Joy and such.
Awwwh, those were the good 'ol days! Anyone tried Kincade's in Southlake?
Frisch's in Florida.
Is this the teenage Barry somebody was talking about last week? LOLJust kidding, Barry...back away from the monitor...;)
I wonder if Doyle knows how girlie boy he looks in red and white checkered overalls?
I like to think of my checkered shorts as home of the WHOPPER.
Kincade's in Southlake is really good but honestly - you need to go to Camp Bowie to the original Kincade's. We started going there when it was still a grocery store. There is just something about sitting in the "old place" that makes the burgers taste so much better.
If you Kincaid lovers ever get to Lake Worth and try JoBo's hamburgers you might change your mind.
