“Ruins of Karnak. American cheese.”
Sounds like Arkansas.
I could eat the fuck out of a “Frozen Niagara” right about now.
At $0.45 it’s a bargain.
The spelunking theme.
AND, I imagine it’s tasty.
I agree. The Frozen Niagara is a winner. Ix-nay on the emium-pray ologna-bay in the Ruins of Karnak. And the American cheese.
Sheila, I didn’t get it at first, but now, I’ll say, “I’ll say.”
Aw, who could say NO to a bologna sandwich (chunk, please, fried in bacon grease) on white bread with mayo?
Oh, and in case you were wondering: the difference between braunschweiger and liverwurst, discussed.
Okay, I’d say yes to a fried bologna sandwich. No to the American cheese.
Danny’s favorite at The Black Forest in Minneapolis.
A rich, delicious, liver pate made with herbs and brandy. Garnished and served with rye bread.
half: $7.75 / whole: $11.75
I ate the shit out of it.
I’d eat the fuck out of it. And gecker while I ate the fuck out of it.
I wonder how many Cave Attractions currently boast restaurants? If we go on a field trip to a cave, I want to go to one with a cave-themed restaurant.
Yellow mustard doesn’t actually exist. On the palate, at least.
French’s Mustard: An American Classic.
I wanted to say Premium Bologna!
