Zack's Hamburgers

Last day of Vacation!
This is the final stop for our 3 day tour/ family vacation we took last summer in a region of North Carolina.  We mostly spent our time in Mount Airy aka Mayberry, but also squeezed in a couple of places in Charlotte.

Zack's Hamburgers was one of those places!
It has been around since 1975.
The building and sign design are super cool!  I believe they are older than 1975 though.  

These kind of angles are calling out a 1950-60 time frame.

I thought this was a fun feature to the building.  It originally had a walk-up window exposed to outside but at some point they walled in a climate controlled sitting area on the perimeter leaving the awesome angled window section in tact.

The bathrooms are located outside because originally there was no inside!  I really liked the concrete decorative wall on the left.

Here is the "Burger of Burgers"! With cheese fries!  Bonus: Crushed ice!

The outside seating area is neat too but I enjoy the luxury of air conditioning so I opted out on this atmosphere.

It was the first time any of us had been to Zack's.
 It was excellent! I would be a regular if I was a local.

So there you have it, 3 days and a crap ton of fun stuff squeezed in.  I didn't even post images from some of the other places we visited such as IKEA, and a few other Mount. Airy museums and shops.  While I was planning this trip I made bunches of calls to the places we wanted to go to way ahead of time for additional information.  I wanted to make sure none of them were hosting any special events like  'Moron Mondays" or just happen to be closed on the days we would be in town. Three days doesn't have much wiggle room for issues.   Luckily for us 'Moron Mondays' are only held on the sixth Tuesday of every month.

I love places like this. I live in MA and in my town we have the original Honeydew Donuts, which is a NE chain. My claim to fame!

Honeydew Donuts is such a cool shop name! I don't think I am ever going to be up MA way but if I am I will have to look it up!
