Griffs Hamburgers

Per request, you shall now be informed about one of the best drive-ins in the greater Albuquerque area; Griffs.

Located at the corner of Central and Wyoming(in Sweet's hood), Griffs has been serving authentic, old-school drive-in burgers, shakes, fries, rings, and the like since 1960. Oddly enough, Griffs started in or was headquartered in KCMO.

This from the Wiki:
Quote:
Griff’s Hamburgers, or Griff's Burger Bar, is a regional fast food chain founded in 1960 by Griff's of America, Inc. of Kansas City, Missouri, United States. At one time they had locations nationwide with the majority in the South near highway exits.[1]
Griff's was named for the founder, Harold Griffin.[2]
The restaurant buildings were of a patented[3] A-frame design,[1] produced by Valentine Diners[4] of Wichita, Kansas. Later restaurants sported more conventional architecture. A bright yellow sign read HAMBURGERS in big block capitals.[5] The restaurants offered both drive-thrus and patio dining.[5]
Most of the stores were located in high traffic locations, such as near a highway off-ramp, or along Route 66.[5]
Corporate headquarters for Griff's of America is now in Dallas, Texas, and stores remain open in Arvada and Denver, Colorado; Bossier City, Ruston and Shreveport, Louisiana; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Dallas, Fort Worth, Haltom City, Garland, Irving, Mesquite, and San Antonio, Texas.[1] A location in Sedalia, Missouri closed in late 2011.[2]
The restaurant chain was featured in multiple installments of the Zippy the Pinhead comic strip; on November 15, 2004,[6] February 10, 2005[7] December 19, 2006,[8] and September 2, 2007.[9]
As you can see, Griffs is not too fancy:



But let's have a look at that old-school burgerage:


Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu******* yeah.

This is what Sonic wishes it could be.

I love real-deal drive-in burgers. None of this Sonic or Whataburger shit. Whataburger is a Texas institution, and we all know Texas has herpes.

I know the Guberburger is classic, but Goody's Steakburgers is better than Wheel Inn.

I ate at a Whataburger in Norman, OK and I thought it was pretty damn good. But that was back in 1995, they probably have herpes now as well.

The balance of Okie hate for all things Texas may have offset the suckage somewhat.

They're famous for putting a peanut butter sauce on their hamburgers, called "The Gooberburger." I've had one. It's OK, not fantastic, just, well, different.

But the locals have been eating them for years.

John Bothwell was a lawyer, mover and shaker in Missouri politics in the early 1900s. The "luxury" hotel in Sedalia was built by the Bothwells, it's still open: http://www.hotelbothwell.com/

The local hospital in Sedalia is named after him, as is a state park just north of Sedalia. The park is a mansion Bothwell owned that's up on a limestone cliff with a commanding view of Pettis County. He was a major mojo in Sedalia in his day, to say the least.

That sounds interesting, in an Elvis-Munchies sort of way. I lived in Pinetop Az. for a while and we had this place called "The Lions Den". It was known for the "Wineburger":

That's okay. We're going to be discussing peanut butter and bacon sandwiches soon, and you can take the lead.
