Time Travel to Norman McDonald's Hamburgers

Norman McDonald's

My wife and I were about to move across town and the mover we picked had an office beyond the city limits of town. We drove out there to pick up some boxes. Just over the road was a log cabin resturant called Norman McDonald's Hamburgers. This got us curious so we checked it out. The guy runing the place was friendly enough and he took our order which we placed while standing up looking at the only menu which was behind glass and hand made on the wall. We both ordered the Farm Burger and he went off to make it. I had my money out and he said we'd pay later. So we found a seat and I checked out the antiques, jars, and rustic atmosphere. They had a photo of John Wayne on the wall, and a little TV in the corner was playing an episode of Bonanza.

A lady and her daughter came out and started telling us the history of the place and how it had been handed down from generation to generation over the years.

Our hamburgers arrived and they were so large neither of us could eat more than half of one. And it was fantastic. It had been a long time since we'd had a hamburger that good. The drinks kept getting refilled and we finally got the bill that was very resonable (if not too low) and realized we'd found the best burgers in town, or out of town for that matter.

We will be back for sure, and split something next time.

    Great find. That's quite a large burger. I bet the kiddie burger would have been bigger than most fast food chain's burgers.
