We used to have a joke about McDonalds back when I was growing up. It went something like this, "McDonald's hamburgers are really delicious when they are warm, but when they cool off the worms start crawling out." Just a joke. I like McDonalds because they have a good sauce on their hamburgers.

Default Glass House

[quote=scaramedic;1495029]It used to be called the Glass House and was a sit down style family restaurant ran by Interstate Hosts, later bought up by Marriott. Which later became Hosts Marriott International and then became Autogrill which owns Burger King. So the biggest McDonald's actually was built by a company that eventually owned Burger King.

I'm pretty sure the Glass House at one time sported a "Howard Johnson's" logo and colors.

As I recall, the midway plaza on both the Turner Turnpike and the Will Rogers Turnpike were originally Howard Johnsons.

Default It's Right _n the Wa_

If I ever get up to Missouri, I'll have to stop by that McDonald's and take the grand tour.

I think to answer other folks' inquiries about the placement of Will Rogers' plaque, that particular McDonald's just happens to be on the Will Rogers Turnpike, and Claremore is just several miles down the road. That would be the only reason I could think of.

As for the two letters falling off, they could have used stronger adhesive.

Yes, thanks Scaramedic! I had no idea that it'd been anything BUT a McDonald's! During my long-haul trucking days, I stopped there a number of times.

Still, though, I wouldn't mind taking a seat with a great view of the turnpike while I munch on a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese.
