I am wondering if a maid-rite is the same as a loose burger sold in Detroit coney islands without chili ?

I have had Maid Rite since I went to college in Iowa in the 1960's. It's basically loose ground beef on a bun. That's about it!

Welcome itsaboutfood, keep posting, but you'll get more replies when your in the right forum, there is one about Hamburgers or the micellaneous food related forum, you might want to repost there. Again, welcome!

Same as a NuWay too. And post where and when you want, dear.
 
Just remember that WWII patriotic slogan "Loose meats sink sheets".
Seems Al Roker said that way back when.

I'm right on it!

I just don't know what a Maid-Rite or a Nu Way happens to be.

I have never had the pleasure.  To me it looks like a very dry sloopy joe.  Am I missing something?

Our old A&W out in central California used to serve these back in the 60's. Maybe the owners were from Iowa.

To me they just look too dry and tasteless. Any pictures I've seen remind me of Rabbit Pellets!!

Not really.  Most Maid-rites I've had resembled either a very dry sloppy joe, or a very greasy sloppy joe.

Nope, you nailed it on the head! I thought they were pretty  tasty back in my college days in Iowa in the 1960's. I haven't had one in 20 years or so!

And because there's no burger to add structure to the sandwich it can be formed into any shape necessary to cram it into one's mouth.

Do they usually fall apart when you pick them up?

I saw garlic salad mention on the Nu Way listing on the front page. What's that like?

The onion rings at Nu Way look good.

I've tried the Iowa maid rite 3 x at 3 different places, I'll never go back for one again.
I just don't find them very good or interesting
 
I'll take one Iowa Chop at market price over 10 free maid rites any day of the week.

It's impossible to pick them up, really.  "Fall apart" suggests they are semi-formed into patties, which they aren't.  They are just "loose meat."  That's why they are served with a spoon.

The only way to eat one burger-style is to pinch it closed at the bottom and along the sides, and even then there's bound to be a little bit of meat that escapes.
 
I wonder why no one's designed a pita-style bun that would solve the problem.

That would take the fun out of it!

I have nicknamed Maid-Rite's hamburgers, "Crumble-Burgers."

I guess we are getting one in Brookfield, Wi, just outside of Milwaukee. Doesnt surprise me, as Brookfield has pretty much nothing but chain restaurants. No Roadfood there!
