Lesterburger

Pulling into the Mars Drive-in for a Lime Rickey. Ordering up a burger from the car hop at the A&W on Blackstone. Checking out the action at Bob's Big Boy. Your favorite grilled cheese sandwich at the Woolworths Counter. Don't forget loading up at Perry Boys Smorgy. What eats do you miss?

Who could forget the infamous Lesterburger with AL RADKA doing the ads on television

Hello, yes I remember the 'ol Lesterburger as well. I used to frequent the one next to Sparkies Electronics. In fact, my best friend's girlfriend worked at the counter there and she used to give us freebies. Ah those were the days.

Love the pic of the cup! Their ads touted "shredded lettuce" in the burger. we used to hang out the one on Ventura and Cedar during high school in the 70's.

Ha! The Lesterburger @ Blackstone & Clinton had an indoor "fireplace," complete with fake logs and a gas jet. One day, when the fire wasn't going, one of my buds slipped a firecracker between the logs. The next day at lunch, we noticed the fire was going. When we left I commented to one of the girls working there, "Hey Cora, I hear you opened with a 'bang' today!" My God she got p.o.'d at us---practically chased us out! This would've been in 1966 or 1967.

Lesterburgers at Belmont and Chestnut.. One of my earliest Fresno memories... we lived about 4 or 5 blocks away on Grant and Jackson... We'd get to go there every now and then.. fast food was a treat back then, not a way of life.. and we were pretty poor.. I remember those burgers as a real treat... far more delicious than a Big Mac will ever be.

I believe that was mama burger, papa burger, and baby burger from a previous marriage.
