Munchy's Burger

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?

We lived on Floradora St just south of McKinley and my younger brother worked at Munchies, I remember at the end of his shift at times would bring home a great big greasy bag of Munchie bugers and we would chow down.

MUNCHY'S (Munchies?)

Postby Klassik57 » Wed Sep 02, 2015 1:49 am

Does anyone remember eating hamburgers at Munchies? It was located about a half block north of McKinley Ave. on First St. The hamburgers there were 12cents and they were really good! My old boyfriend and I would be riding our bikes to a friends house almost every weekend, and we'd stop there on the way. I remember well that we could get 2 burgers and french fries for under $.50! People used to joke about what kind of meat they were using (horse?) and I think they may have had some soy in them but they were really good.

I worked at Foster Freeze at ninth and Ventura across Ninth from Munchie burger. We bought munchie burgers took the home and put more stuff on them. Before Munchie Burger there was a bar called the Jolly Inn there. The Hells Angeles hung out there.

I'm pretty sure it was Munchies. There was also one on Ventura between First and Cedar. This was about 1971 or so and as a ten year old kid my freinds and I used to beg my brother to drive us there. We all loved the burgers and of corse the price!

Norm Christensen owned the Munchies at 1st and McKinley for awhile, he opened up Norm's at Shaw and Blackstone and also bought Clawson Boats, which and a Honda dealership, and morphed into Clawson Honda, which he sold in 1975.

The best part of the Munchie burger was the sauce which made it taste rather delicious.
It was a creamy mustard with a hint of hickory smoke and in 40 years I have not tasted anything as good.
We were kids when Mom drove down to First and McKinley to get them. We miss the burgers but have the great memories!
