The other restaurants in the area seem to do a business even with the road horror.
We drove by it this afternoon, there looked to be one couple in the place but it was open. Unfortunately, I already promised my son we'd go get some buttered burgers at Culver's; so we didn't stop. Maybe we should have, as while those are decent burgers (better than fast food, but still not as good as Bobby J's, Lord's or the Bracken Cafe), they do sit like a brick for an hour or so...

Cheers! M2

Great expression. I've been looking for a way to describe that feeling after eating a hamburger these days. Maybe I'm getting old. Sometimes my stomach sounds like a dying grizzly bear after eating these things.

Yeah, unfortunately I can't knock down a burger like I used to when I was younger.

Getting old sucks, but it's better than the alternative!

Man, all this talk of food from back home makes me want to open a traditional chipper. I miss sausage in batter and saveloy so damn much.. And the cod and chips of course! ARGH!

It's interesting to see how many people were in the USAF and based at Lakenheath/Mildenhall in this thread too.

Oi! Don't forget those of us who were based in other locations in the UK!

Remember, 30 years ago there were tons of US bases there (Bentwaters/Woodbridge, Upper Heyford, Chicksands, Greenham Common, Fairford, etc, etc.).

Those were the days!

But if you did open a chippie in SA, I guarantee you that I'd be a regular customer there!

Cheers! M2

Just wanted to say that I now make my own British sausages, saveloys and sausage rolls. I missed them far too much not to learn how to make them all myself. I'm pretty chuffed with myself :3
