Thanks to all of you who replied to “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” It was fun remembering some of the old favorites of yester-year. Richard Thompson made me flash back to Scotty’s Sandwich Junction, which was located on the corner of Washington and Sycamore in Kokomo. I’m not sure when Scotty’s closed, but I’m thinking it must have been in the early 80’s. If any of you out there have additional information, please feel free to jump in!
While doing a little research, I found this old commercial of Scotty’s. You can view it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-Ev1UT6s74.
If anyone knows any of the THEN teenagers, let us know who they are.
Chrissy Waddups couldn’t remember the name of the restaurant that made those HUGE baked potatoes with pulled pork and cheese. I need some help here. Was it Queen Gyros on Markland or Taco Grande on Lincoln Road? She also gave shout outs to Create A Cake and Backyard BBQ.
Some of the other “favorites” were Pizza King, Martino’s pizza, Whiskey Creek’s chicken strips, and our hometown original, Louie’s Coney Island.
I think my favorite childhood memory is Mr. Softy! I can remember hearing the music coming down the street and running home to get a quarter to purchase a twist cone or a Super Man popsicle! My favorite grown-up memory is meeting up with friends at Hacienda to enjoy a Frozen Long Island!
