There's still time for our Fall Favorites

Just because there's a nip in the air and some snow on the ground, there's no reason you can't still dig in to our Fall Favorites. Fall isn't really over until... well... um, not for a while still. So we're still running strong with our Fall Favorites menu! 
Come in for:
The Flanagan - it's a rueben on top of your burger
Chicken Pot Pie - in a sourdough breadbowl
The Lombardi BLT - a champion's version of a BLT
Italian Trio - meaty & tasty!
Come get 'em all soon, before fall really does come to an end.

It's Tuesday - Great For Two Reasons

Here we are again.  Tuesday.

It's just that this one matters just a little bit more than most.

1) Get your 3.99 fresh, hand-pattied angus steak burger with fries.  Admittedly, this happens every Tuesday, but its always a big deal!

2) We get to do that vote thingy today.  Whatever side you choose, just know that we'll be here, ready to get you your 3.99 angus steakburger after you vote (or before, it depends on when you read this LOL).

3) We've got $4 Half sized Buns specialty drinks
(the L'il Papa & $4 L'il Devil & L'il Purple Drink & L'il Monster).
Preferably you'll indulge AFTER you vote, but hey, we're still selling them all day.  They finally changed that law a few years ago.  *yippie*!

Hope we can see you soon!

I Don't Care What You Think

Yep, I don't care what you think.  More perfect words were never written, esp in this circumstance.

Everyone has a different opinion on everything from how your burger should be cooked to ketchup or mustard, and then all the way up to politics.

And no matter your thoughts of this election, voting in general, or the current candidates... you have to appreciate what we have in this country vs. most other countries in the world.  So many people don't have the ability to express their opinion in government.

Whether you call us a democracy or a republic (yes, there's a difference), it is still a wonderful thing.  We have a vote, a voice, and a chance at something resembling the will of the people.

While this body chooses not to form an opinion and express it to its readers, that doesn't mean YOU can't have one and exercise it.

To those who think "it won't matter".  You're wrong.  On average at least 1/3 of voters don't turn out.  Why?  I have no idea and the press & politicians go round & round about it.  But the point is that if 1/3 picked one side and 1/3 picked the other side.  Just imaging the impact the non-voting 1/3 could have!  Wow!!  That would swing it either way completely.

I don't care what you think.  But I DO want you to show it.

It's really that simple.  You get one vote, make it count.
