I understand that when they tore down that stand in 1956 to make way for the freeway, there was an order up, perfectly preserved, from 1948!

Eclectic menu. The usual with Orange Ade and hot chocolate added. Interesting.

And their new commercials about ask McDonalds anything where they start asking about the meat is a bit disgusting though...

I guess you had to wear plaid to get served at the first McDonald's. Damn, they were really strict.
