BURGER JUNKIE

By Nancy Whitaker

New food. New burgers. Have you heard about them? I consider myself a sort of “foodie.” I like to read cookbooks, try various recipes and an not afraid to try different kinds of food. I really enjoy fast-food and always have. To me, a dollar burger tastes great.

Now, I can remember back to when hamburgers were a quarter apiece and sometimes five for a dollar at a fast food restaurant. What a treat it was to stop in Fort Wayne on the way home from a shopping expedition and get hamburgers and fries. Back then, that was the main fare of fast-food restaurants.

There were no wraps, iced coffees, yogurts, pulled pork or chicken nuggets and definitely not very many choices if you wanted to eat “healthy.”

Through the years, so many fast-food restaurants have made their appearance. There are fast food restaurants for chicken, subs, ice cream, hot dogs, fish, tacos, and chili.
