In the 70's Whataburgers jingle "What a burger is what a burger should be.  What a burger for your family".  I am still singing that one.

I read in the old forum about Taco Bell serving beer on Camp Bowie.  I don't remember that particular restaurant but they did have a Taco place on Cooper in Arlington.  It was right next to the parking lot at UTA.  It looked like an old Taco Bell but I think it was privately owned and had another name and YES they did serve beer.  In fact it was an open draft beer with no top and you could get it at the drive thru.  We didn't have cup holders then and my car was a stick shift so it was tricky.  It's a good thing I was only driving across the street to my apt.  The drinking age was 18 and I doubt if they carded at the drive thru.  Does anyone else remember that place?

Thanks John.  It has been a while since I lived over there.

I went there a couple of times in the 70's.  Wasn't it a cop hangout for a while?  I went there with a cop so I just assumed.

In 1976 the house stood alone and you could see it from Vickery ( I think that was the street) as you drove by.  There was nothing even  close to it.
