Yep it is that way here at AZ at all the stores. You can even buy booze at the 7 11. When I first moved here I thought it was weird. I also told someone when i first moved here. I needed to go to the Ice House. We got in the car and passed 7 11, and I said hey, ya just past one. He was taking me to a real ice Factory.

Speaking of hamburgers, does anyone else remember when Jack-In-The-Box used to have really good burgers? At least, they did during the mid-1980's. Their Jumbo Jack used to be made with lettuce, green tomatoes, onions, pickles, and the best part...secret sauce. Then, for a while they used to sell their small cheeseburgers plain on toasted buns with secret sauce, 2 for $.99. Those were the best. I was addicted to them for months in 1986/1987.

Then suddenly, everything changed. They stopped using secret sauce and started using mayo, or else mayo and ketchup. Ugh. No wonder their sales dropped. Now they sell Jumbo Jacks on the value menu for less than what they cost 20 years ago.

Can someone find them a clue?

Default Pan American Speedway

I used to love to take my moms old station wagon onto the abandoned Ricci Wares Pan American speedway and run around it with my friends.

Good times

YES! Used to love that place when I lived in area. Is it still there? I may have to drive to SA for a visit this weekend if it is.

Frings sounds very familiar, like back when their fries were REALLY good too, before they changed them. Some kind of onion ring and fry combo, right?

They changed their fries to the same ones Burger King did in the early 90's. Same stupid fries that led to Burger King's downfall.

Does anyone remember a barbecue restaurant (maybe Backyard Barbecue) on 1604 near Rolling Oaks Mall? I'm trying to remember where it was located exactly.

I worked at the Albertson's at West Ave and Blanco from '76 to '85. Some of the best years of my life.
