Across the street from 1849 Village there was a go-cart track and also it seems like they had a helicopter ride that would take you up and fly towards downtown and back.

It seems that there was a Buddies on the corner of Bridge St. and Oakland, this would be in the mid 70's.

If I remember correctly there were a number of Good Luck's around time at one time. On Beach street where Coors BBQ was or still is was a A&W Root Beer stand back in the mid 60's.

In the 5300 block of East Lancaster in the 60's was Ted's BBQ which had a sawdust floor. After it was finally closed and torn down, it was the first location of Taco Bell in Fort Worth. At the time I was a young Asst. Mgr. at the McDonald's next door at 5305 which was later turned into a Long John Silvers. The McDonald's opened in 1961 and I started in 1966 and spent 30 with McDonald's Corp. before some other ventures.

In 1968 at a 17 year old kid, I sold the first Big Mac in Texas. At that time we only had several McDonald's in the entire state. They sold for .49 cents.
Does anyone know where the last 40 years went?

I went to lunch at that McDonalds pretty much everyday my senior year in high school.
