There are still palm trees in the same spot.
Much more charming area back then.

Der Weinerschnitzel!
Take my word for it. It was Whataburger when I was there 9@ Mr. Steak). Maybe originally built as a Der Weinerschnitzel but I dont think do.
The one I remember on the west side was across from the Bethany.

Roosevelt? Phone book from 70-71?

#2 Camelback and 7th St
#3 Thomas and 43rd Ave
#4 6830 N. 35th Ave
#5 450 W. Indian School

Maybe later 7th St. and Glendale now a Filibertos.

Across from the Bethany was McDonald's and Texas Bar-B-Que.

Half the Whataburgers I've ever seen have the A-frame. Notably the Texan locations.

The franchise at 2955 North Hayden Road has seen changes since the old days; the original building has been replaced by a more generic one. In the 70s the kitchen was up front; you ordered at one end and told the guy at the other end what you wanted on it as it came off the line. There was no kitchen in the back.

As a kid it was neat to watch the conveyor broiler at Burger Chef (69th and McDowell).

Thanks for the pic of the Greyhound station. That was a big fixture in downtown for a long time. Most of us now wouldn't know where to catch the Greyhound here without looking it up.

I loved going to the Bus Depot to pick up or see friends off.... it was a hub of activity and exciting. We just took all of these things for granted. I loved seeing that post card...and the poster said he thought it was about 1957. Seems I see a few 1957 Chevys in the pix. Ah old Phoenix, I miss ya.

I've noticed lots of Whataburgers closing up shop all over the valley within the last 3-4 years. Now there is just a small handful left in the valley. Anybody know why?
