There are a few Bonanzas left--one in Tupelo, Ms and quite a few PondeBullBoxer31 left. I live right down the road from a couple in Kissimmee, Fl

Minute Man was great! They made those old-fashioned, loaded greaseburgers that tasted so good. My father operated a slot car track on South University in Little Rock from 1965-68; I was about 10 or 11 at the time. Minute Man was two doors up after Scott Lumber Co., so we had burgers for lunch quite often. My favorite Minute Man treat was the "Deep Dish Pie," which was served in a little round cup. This came with a little container of "cream" (I think it was just cold milk) that you could pour over the hot pie. My dad would laugh at me for eating these things, but I thought they were exotic. I made friends with a college-age guy who worked at that Minute Man and went by the moniker "Charlie the Tuna." Great memories, and this was the formation of my high standards for righteous hamburgers. In the '70s after we moved to Houston I found a similar place in the Bellaire Triangle called Bellaire Broilerburger, which amazingly is still there. And today down here in San Juan, Texas, we have a Stars Drive-In that continues to make great old-fashioned burgers. I do hope to get up to El Dorado one of these days for one last Minute Man meal!
