Part of the 5 person road crew, Oma Linda head photog and the map holder/drink carrier/good looking one, Poison Mom took me out to lunch today. The others were off at their real day jobs. I mean we did have office duties to preform but these two are too funny together to miss an opportunity to escape the drudgery of the office, have a laugh and kick up our heels. So we headed to lunch.
Oma Linda pointed the Omamobile, a very cute little orange car, in the direction of an oldie but a goodie drive in restaurant here in metro ABQ. When she and I were in our teens, before there was hair, this place was already well established as one of the three places to troll for good looking guys. Oma regaled us (she is very much like Duckie on NCIS the way she drones on.....poor dear) with tales of picking up boys at Frank's, Mac's and Peter Pan's as a teenager driving on the make......er looking to flirt or pick up boys.....er gathering with fellow teens to hold conversations.
Peter Pan's was razed in the mid 70's and guess what stands there now?????? A Walmart. Frank's went the way of the forgotten and lonely guy places in the 90's and all the Mac's went into bankruptcy, save this one, just two years ago.
As Oma tells it, one always orders a taquita twosome, green chile cheese burger or steak in the rough with a cherry limeade. Poison Mom said, after receiving her drink order of a cherry limeade that she had forgotten how much better Mac's are than say oh.......sonic but you didn't hear it from this reporter.
|The Rough, fries, roll, cole slaw, pieces of beef much like a chicken fried steak and the biggest green onion.|
|Taquita Twosome, seasoned ground beef rolled in a corn tortilla, quick fried, served with salsa and guacamole and chips|
|Poison Mom, not talking|
|And an almost totally scarffffffed green chile cheeseburger|
|My new/old love|
|The Bunnifer at rest|
