Said "/burger joint/" was the "Burger Chef". I was twelve when it
opened up. Up until then I couldn't stand a hamburger. Hot dogs were
what I lived on. Anyway, a friend's mother took us there for lunch and
they didn't have hot dogs, only burgers. However, they weren't your
normal fried hamburger. They were "Char-broiled" burgers. So, I tried
one and I fell in love with them!
