Re: Old Dairy Queen signs

Some of the DQ's I've been to including the one at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport have photos of earlier DQs. Take a look next time you're in one; fascinating! This is something they're now doing in newer Hardee's and Carl's Jr's as well. (Old Hardee's and Carl's Jr photos, not DQ photos, of cour...

Re: Long John Silver's freestanding stores

i've only seen one free-standing A&W before, and that was in Boulder City and it reminds me of Sonic, is that what most freestanding A&W's are like?

Re: Long John Silver's freestanding stores

We have a bunch of KFC/LJS and AW/LJS here in Las Vegas, but we still have AFAIK 2 freestanding LJS, one on Maryland at Flamingo, and I think there is one on Boulder Hwy...

Re: Former Boston Market locations in your area

There was a Boston Market in Henderson, NV at the intersection of Sunset and Sunset (aka Sunset and Mountain Vista), I think it is now a payday loan center...IMO it was a horrible location because it was directly behind a gas station and it may not have been visible to the street...

Re: Long's Drugs being bought by CVS and will disappear by 2009

The Valencia store on Magic Mountain Pkwy is also in a shopping center with Target though they are on the opposite ends of the (very lo...
