Today Kevin Shalin counted down his favorite Golden Oldies, and commenter Markthespot33 agreed with his choice of Lankford Grocery:
I swear by those Lankford burgers. They're the best hangover cure I've found yet. I remember one morning, after a Friday night of way too much beer & tequila, I was seriously hurting. Had Edie whip me up a double that had me back in top form by the last bite. Her son, Paul said he'd never heard of anyone ordering a double before. But then again, that was back in '94 or '95. I truly doubt I was the first and pretty sure I wasn't the last, either.
Well, EOW Nation? Who's had a double at Lankford?
