In Topic: Urban legends

02 June 2014 - 06:43 AM

Midget Village was something that someone built for their kids to play in, and a few high school kids stumbled on it and the legend began. (used to go out there all the time when I was 16/17 years old) And no, there were never any midgets living there.

 

I do remember one persistent rumor back in high school that there was a nearly new Corvette at Jack Williams Chevrolet that someone had passed away in and they couldn't remove the smell so they only wanted $500 bucks for it. Of course it was completely false but I knew a salesmen there who said they got calls about that $500 Vette for years. :laugh:

There was a Jamie's Hamburgers up on the traffic circle in the early 70's. Kind of an odd upscale hamburger joint with table service - I ate there once and wasn't crazy about it.

 

I used to love the diced ham & cheese salad at Kip's on Camp Bowie, and the chef salad at Chelsea St. Pub at Ridgmar Mall. (I have a feeling neither one of those salads were as good as I remember. :) )

 

Strangely enough, the Blue Star Inn (chinese place) on Camp Bowie had one of the best chicken fried steaks in town.

 

Loved Chuckwagon hamburgers - they used the best seasoning on their burgers.

 

Angelo's was great back in the day - sadly they haven't been the same since Angelo passes away back in the late 90's.

 

Arlington Steak House used to have amazing chicken fried steak (yellow gravy) but it's not the same since they sold the place.

 

Rick's Locker Room on Park Place (old neighborhood grill now) used to have the  best burgers in Ft. Worth.


In Topic: Gingerman

There was a bar down the street from the Gingerman (back in the 70's) that was called the Gingerbread House. I'm guessing that is the place your friend is thinking of. (it later changed to the Blue Bayou, I believe)
