Random find:

In 1974, eating at McDonald's was pretty inexpensive.

OMG, Joe, that's awesome! You always find the greatest stuff.

We maybe had McDonald's about 3 or 4 times a year when we were little. It was always a BIG deal. My sister and I would get to split a chocolate shake and fries, along with our cheeseburgers, and we thought it was so fantastic.

Well - I actually remember when the burgers were 15¢ - Our family of 6 could go there and easily eat for less than $10. As ChiTown Girl said - it was not very often when we went and was a big treat!

I've actually sworn off junk food and haven't eaten there in a year and a half, but McDonald's was the greatest of junk food places to eat.

CTG: Mom and I ate there a lot when my folks split up because it was so cheap. I still get something there once in a while. I'll always like McDonald's

BFTP: Hey stranger, nice to see you're alive ;^)
Looks like you're back blogging so I'll put you back on my reading list

Wow, great pic! And to think, this was the ENTIRE menu!

My standard order was a hamburger, fries and a coke. No variation.

We only had a Burger Chef in town when I was a kid, and we ate there quite a bit. I did a little research and the franchise was nearly as prevalent as McDonalds at one point in the '70's. Decent food as I recall too, and featured stuff like official King Kong glasses and Star Wars posters.

They used to have "Fun Meals" which were the predecessor of the McDonald's "Happy Meal", only it came on a little cardboard tray which you could make various toys out of. I remember having a Spirit of St. Louis and an X-Wing Fighter!

I loved Burger Chef and fun meals too. But once McDonald's came to town, BC folded. Fun meals had the best toys
