We ate here today

It’s between Battle and Hastings. As in Battle of Hastings? 1066?

Oh, well. We should’ve ordered the greasy breakfast; the burgers weren’t great.

I always promised her Stoatliness I’d take her to all the best places 🙂

You’ll NEVER get good burgers at a place that PRETENDS to be route 66… However, If you ever get to Santa Rosa New Mexico, the Rocket 3 diner has GREAT Tex-mex…

They’re not so much pretending as making a bad pun.

Always go for the lamb burger.

“How would you like that cooked?”

The food service on the I-95 New Jersey Turnpike was wretched despite being a national franchise. It was a long time ago. If they haven’t gone out of business, it’s probably worse now.

I still say the Donner Pass Picnic Area has it beat.

So, I’m driving along in Jolly Old, and the effort of staying on the right left side of the highway motorway, and the effort has left me famished.

I see the sign for a typical roadside cafe – say the Route 1066 cafe- what’s the best thing to order?

I just discovered that those retarded idiots in Frants say “Cat Bees” when they mean “4 kisses”. WTF?

I mean, thank God they invaded England in 1066-ish, or we’d be stuck speaking a language that makes sense.

I looked at their website. It’s kind of expensive.

EVERYthing in England is expensive, Scott. I don’t know how people get by, and I’ve been doing it for years.

Some Veg: fried breakfast, probably. The bacon is more like country ham, and you’ll probably get baked beans, if you’re not careful, but breakfast is decent.

They do a surprisingly nice (and common) chili, though. If they do spell it chilli.

Be glad it’s “1066”, and not “666”, else you might have entered a scenario from some wretched made-for-TV movie.

Hmmm, eggs and ham with Chili. Substitute some hash browns for the Beanz, and teach the waitress to call you Honey, and you could pretend you were in Texas!

Anthropology time!

Is that endemic, or exceptional?

Do Britons know how to make a decent burger, or is that skill limited to (North) Americans?

If no to first question in the sentence above, do any non-(North) Americans know how to make a decent burger?

(Australians, maybe?)

Good burgers are not common here, but I’ve had a few. Remember, Brits are known for roast beef, so they have the raw ingredients.

I’d go there. 🙂

Britons insist on adding stuff to their “hamburger” patties, and that is not a burger. That is a meatloaf sandwich. Hmmmmpf.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
