I ache for one of those New England style buns with a regional dog in it!
Aha. Why would anyone have time to read a newspaper there? I would be too busy eating. [:p]
I can truthfully say I’ve never seen a sign like that, and I was once an over the road trucker and have many RF type joints under my belt. Literally. And figuratively.
Sadly, descriptions of RF places do me no good without pics. I need that visual stimulation. [:(]
The place I am referring to is the White Hut in West Springfield, MA…in biz since 1939 and the ONLY place even remotely of its kind in Massachusetts.

Sadly, here in central MA…we’re dominated by the chains..Crapplebees, Ruby Snoozedays, Ahlove Garbage, Macmerunaway Grill….Picabadmeal Pub…99 Pub (99 reasons why I won’t go there)
…Chilly’s (my Chilly reception to the food)….Wronghorn Steakhouse,
….BarfOutback (after you eat there) Steakhouse, Draggin’ Donuts, and Honey Dew Not Eat Them Donuts…..

Where might this place be located as i’m hungry now?
