I kinda like the idea of him running a DQ...

"I'll have a burger and a sundae."

"You want drugs with that?"

How about a "Meth Blizzard"?

EXACTLY.

I agree that Boyd is a quintessential badass outlaw. As such, he takes chances that would be appalling to mere mortals. Still, Boyd is very smart and very resourceful, so my money remains on him in his contest with the arrogant boys from up in the hills.

Although Justified is filled with characters who are immoral or amoral, those are the kinds of folks Elmore Leonard writes about. Thus, it seems to me that those who are appalled by the violence and immorality portrayed in justified should stay far, far away from Leonard's books.

Whats the Dylan line..."If you live outside the law you have to be honest."I think one of the most fascinating things about Justified is that most of the characters do have a moral code, and in fact adhere to it much better than most "normal" people adhere to theirs.Its just that their definition of right and wrong doesn't quite mesh with society's.

Agreed.

Laugh all you want, but time was when DQ was THE place to be around these parts ...

Eh ... exactly ... of course we eventually got a Sonic (Drive In .... Whoooo Hooo!!!) and the DQ era began to decline.

That's right. Sonic built a better mousetrap and severely damaged Dairy Queen. For example in the metro OKC area, which is Sonic's HQ, there is no longer a single Dairy Queen. Of course there seems to be a Sonic on every street corner here these days, so Dairy Queen's decision to move on is certainly understandable. I think Dairy Queen still does all right in smaller Oklahoma communities, though. There are many of them in other parts of the state, including two in the metropolis of Durant, OK, population 15,000. Thus, maybe Boyd's insistence on getting a DQ franchise makes sense.

If I were Boyd I would have angled for a Hardee's franchise (Carl's Jr. in the west). They're very numerous and popular in the hinterlands and along the interstates and seem to have adopted a corporate strategy of ceding the cities to their rivals. Can't find many of 'em in metro areas anymore. Boyd's not a city boy. And Hardee's serves breakfast! Boyd and Ava seem like people who would appreciate starting their day with a good biscuit & gravy. It's what mountain folk do.

On another subject, Justified was the answer to a Jeopardy question last night about TV shows. The only bummer--it was the $1000 question, meaning they thought it would be the most difficult to answer! But, one of the contestants got it right.

1) I think you mean it was the question... "What is Justified?" biggrin.gif
2) What was the answer?

I thought of that, too. As long as Boyd was extorting a fast food franchise from the overmatched hill boys, why didn't he extort a Hardee's, Sonic, or any one of a number of other fast food franchises that are bigger and "hotter" than Dairy Queen is these days.

Mmmmm....home-made biscuits & gravy.
The thought brings me back to a winter 35+ years ago I spent with my grandparents in the hills of SW Missouri....squirrel gravy, rabbit gravy, sausage gravy, gravy, gravy, and more gravy.....smile.gif

Sonic recently expanded to my "parts" and I gave it try...
Once was enough, thank you.

Even though I can't have sugar anymore, I'll take the food from DQ anytime over Sonic's....tongue.gif

The three food groups that act like a culinary catalyst and make everything better: Gravy, bacon, & cheese. biggrin.gif

Looks like DQ is pretty popular in Ky, check out this list of DQ's and in particular notice how many are in KY.

This page is hilarious, good reading biggrin.gif

For people in the South, what about Whataburger? Good fast food right there tongue.gif
I don't eat there anymore since my health kick though.

Can't wait for tonight. We'll see what happens to Boyd's plans.

Sonic is far from high end fast food but I rather like it for what it is. The hamburgers are adequate and they also have onion rings that are decent. My grandson, a chicken connoisseur, tells me that their chicken nuggets are excellent. A lot of people also like their shakes, although I have not eaten that kind of thing for any years. If I want ice cream I'll go to Braums or Baskin Robbins for the real thing. I was never, ever a DQ fan and to tell the truth didn't learn they were gone from OKC until this discussion caused me to check them out.

One more word, or actually one more great desert, Braum's chocolate chocolate chip ice cream. Talking about it while having none on hand is torture.smile.gif

I love Hardee's. There is one about 2 miles from my house and I had two sausage & egg biscuits (2 for 1 coupon) from there yesterday. And, Butterfinger Blizzards from DQ are WONDERFUL!!!

We don't have a DQ here, but we do have a seasonal Dairy Barn, love their shakes.

I don't know about today, but back 20-30+ years ago Tommy's was THE place for a burger in LA. Talk about a shack, those campers on the back of pickup trucks are mansions in comparison.

post #2218 of 3235
Sonic does not offer them anymore, sadly, but they once had a chicken-fried steak sandwich. It consisted of a deep-fried hamburger patty breaded to better retain the juice (some would call, "fat"), and give it a tasty crispness at the same time. I ordered mine with chili, cheese, mustard and onions. I called it the "Michelle Burger" in honor of food-nannies everywhere.

It was scrumptious!

I am anticipating tonight's episode more than any show's this season. The image of Raylan's muni-cop buddy blasting away with a machine-gun has me fired up and finding out who Thompson is will answer the tease.

Huh...I should know about it, but I don't.

Last time I lived there was 35 years or so back.
At that time, for me at least, it was In and Out burger mania...back when they made GOOD burgies.eek.gif
We don't have any franchises up here in Oregon and so a couple of years while in Vegas, I dragged the wife (after waxing poetically for years about 'em) to one of their outlets just off the strip.
I think it was on the other side of the freeway from New York, New York.
Anyhoo, I was embarrassed...the food had changed radically and NOT for the better IMO.frown.gif
I still dream of my In and Out burgers, with fries....from the Azusa store.

Sorry again, for going OT....yet again.

Now, back to all things Justified.smile.gif

Tommy's is near downtown LA, Rampart and Beverly, and I'm pretty darn sure that was the only one in town 35 years ago. In-in-Out is good too, especially if you order off the Secret Menu. cool.gif
