Jolly Jacks Hamburgers
Mon, 07/2/07 12:46 AM
When I was 8 years old ( this would be 1976 ) I did a local radio commerical that aired on WHPL-AM 610 in Winchester, VA with my mom for a hamburger drive-in called "Jolly Jacks". For years I always thought it was just that one restaurant but I was chatting online yesterday with a former dj who at the time worked at WHPL. He says that Jolly Jacks was actually a chain but other than that, he knew nothing else.
Anybody else heard of Jolly Jacks. I believe their hamburger was called the Jolly Boy. I know that in Winchester their location that was on Valley Ave ( US Route 11 ) had a playground in the back for kids.
Not sure when this place first opened but I am pretty sure it closed sometime in the early 80s.
Still remember the jingle...
"....you will come back....to Jolly Jacks !!"
