In a continuing search for something I haven't seen before, I had dinner at a place called Spangles. It is a Kansas fast food chain in the style of Johnny Rockets. It has the shiny metal siding, the large plaster statue of Elvis, and walls covered with records and advertisements for sodas and milk shakes. But it is more oriented to the fast food crowd than Johnny Rockets, in that there is a drive through and there is not a waitstaff, certainly not one that sings to you.
Did I just mention singing? That's right, I was recently read that Dan Snyder owns Johnny Rockets. According to this Washington Post article:
Have you ever been to a Johnny Rockets where they sing and dance? I have not.
At any rate, another exciting food opportunity only available here in Kansas is Dimple Donuts. It certainly looks unique, huh? Be aware; they do not take credit cards
