The Po Folks that was located on Hiway 131 in Clarksville, Indiana was a great place to lunch on a workday. Service was always quick and the costs were right for a lunch and run place. That's where I learned to appreciate Catfish.
The last time we were in there before it shut down was on a roadtrip in 96 or so. It had dropped bigtime in both the quality and the service by then.
The building housed a Chinese Buffet for several years...and now has one of the Mongolian BBQ/Chinese buffet outlets in it.
Dutch Pantry- We had one at the interchange of i-65 and IN-46 in Columbus, IN. it was a great stop for coffee and Apple Fritters (hush-puppy shaped apples in dough, deep-fried and powdered sugar coated).
In Socal, one of the new 'combination' foodstands was Popeyes and A&W. Interesting combination. In this area (Louisville Metro) A & W has teamed with Long John Silver.
The combination foodstand concept has been expanding the last few years...I read somewhere that the reasons supporting the teaming of brands was two-fold..
1. Lower overhead for both companies, usually with non-competitive menu's. AND
2. The move in society to give the little critters in the family a voice in the selection of their dinner. Instead of Dad or Mom saying tonight is burger (or chicken, or pizza) nite...You can let each of the whining little cretins choose "their" food without having to stop at multiple locations (drive thru's) to satisy the sniveling desires of kids who should be told to Sit-Down, Shut-Up and Take what you're given Thankfully.!!
Yes I do feel much better now, Thank You.
