Big T burgers Sun, 07/18/04 10:02 PM (permalink)

I am brand new to this site, I tried a search for Big T, nothing showed up. as a kid, on vacation in summer, there were "Big T" burger places in northeast GA where we used to go. are there any left? I can very clearly remember how that double cheeseburger tasted. this would have been in the early-mid 80's, when I was up there in '94 I couldnt find one that wasnt sold. anybody know? please???

thank you in advance,

    Is 'Big T' the restaraunt that is known for its numerous flavors of milkshakes and has a penguin for a mascot? If so, there used to be (may still be) one in the outskirts of Davis, WV. I used to stop there once a year on my way to the Blackwater 100 motorcycle race when they still had it. I remember the 'Big T' burgers were close to the 'Big Boys' from Elbys (my favorite of all time). They were a double with cheese, lettuce, pickles, and thousand island dressing (like a big mac but better).

    Anyways, i'm planning a trip down that way next month so i'll find out.

    ps--Sorry if i'm talking about something different completely.

      thank you for your reply. I dont remember a penguin, but the burgers were alot like a big mac only 100% better. I have family in the southwest "corner" of WV, I'll ask them. the vanilla shake was awesome!

      thanks again,

        Some Tastee-Freez stores also have Big T. I don't know the relationship, I thought they were two completely separate franchises. That matches DairyQueen/Brazier in a way.

        There's a Tastee-Freez/Big T in Laurel, Maryland. It seems to be family owned and run, with several food items like Roast Beef that probably aren't part of those chain's franchise menus. It's a sit down place, about the size of most current McDonald's and Burger King. It's been there at least 30 years.

          Well theken4, I apologize, but I never did make the trip down to see if the Big T was still there. Went to 'Put-In-Bay' on Lake Erie instead for some of their perch. I wasnt dissapointed, but am still curious if the Big-T still stands. One day maybe.
