ebeach - are you still there??? or have you starved to death in Enid
Actually, Enid is the garden spot of NW Oklahoma
. I had never seen this thread before; I posted recently about a road trip there and got no responses (suchasurprise).
I was a student (pre-ministerial) at Phillips U. in the 60s. Phillips went under a few years ago, a real shame.
I dilly-dallied with old friends along the way and didn't get to Enid until Sunday and had to leave early the next morning. The one place I wanted to try, Pak-a-Sak on E. Maine, was closed Sunday and not open by the time I left Monday AM. This is where I was introduced to sliders or bite-sized hamburgers. When the dorm cafeteria was closed (Sat and Sun eves) we would pile in cars and head down to Pak-a-Sak for 6 burgers for $.90. I don't remember much about them other than they had lots of mustard on them and were small -- probably pickle and onion, too, but whether it was raw onion or grilled I don't remember. I loved 'em and really wanted to taste them again. Pak-a-Sak is still there, (I got a picture) but the signs in the window gave no indication they still serve the small burgers.
I didn't have a car when I was there as a student so didn't get around town much but this time I came across another place on Grande, a few blocks north of the railroad overpass, that looked interesting. Look at Michael Stern's review of Robert's in El Reno on this site and that's pretty much what the building looks like so I'm sure its been there a long time.
I had my new digital camera along and was having a great time taking pics; if I ever figure out how to get them loaded in the computer, I'll come back to this thread and post. I was so excited about looking at the pics I took, I forgot to check out the menu of this other place, but I'm sure it was hamburgers and such.
Other than that, I didn't see much in Enid -- saw the Carl's Jr. and Taco Bueno. The Yellow pages listed a Lot-a-burger on Willow, but that's apparently now 'GeneBurger,' and, yes, it was closed, too.
