Burger King
Myrtle Beach, SC

Here you have it... a 1970's Burger King sign still standing proud. And as a bonus,  other than the blue roof,  it stands guard over a largely in intact 1970's Burger King. I wonder if they have fries from the pre-breaded era to complete the nostalgic feel? BK used to have good fries before that fad hit. 05-07

Here are pictures of a place called Cook Out. This particular one was off I-85 at the north border of Charlotte (Across from Bubba's to be exact). Pretty much a local chain as far as I can tell. They are not super common but you do see them from time to time. All I saw were carry out only except for the one in Salisbury, The place was good, burgs and chicken on a grill. I can tell you this, big or small the south knows how to make a good burger. 07-08
