According to Scherer's column today, there's now a Mean Gene's burger place open in San Diego.
Can we get a road trip restaurant review, Guru?
Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform, And tell you every detail of Caractacus's uniform; In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral, I am the very model of a modern Major-General.
Those Mean Gene's outlets (slogan..."The burger that says BITE ME") seem to pop up and then drop out of sight quite a bit. The company that runs that chain is South Dakota-based Orion Food System. They own around fifteen different brands, their most notable easily being Hot Stuff Pizza. They franchise their concepts to operators of gas stations and mall food courts, then distribute the food.
The first one I found was inside a Texaco station in Cheyenne, WY. The guy running it was constantly getting questions from wrestling fans and very wearily would respond "It's a franchise. I don't know anything."
They had promotional materials at the pumps that said "WIN WCW Monday Nitro!" I guess Vince won. Whoda thunk he was a burger eater.
The food WAS decent, but nothing spectacular. Average burger fare, basically. It's been closed for quite awhile now, long before the sale to the WWF.
Someone else can explain it better than I, but the same sports game can't be shown on two different stations at the same time. In the NY area, the Braves-Mets game was on MSG, the channel I'm supposing gets precedence in this situation.
