I’m guessing they don’t serve goat cheese on their burgers... strangely that’s where my mind goes!
I love ‘70s SNL so much. I had a VHS tape of Gilda Radner’s greatest hits when I was a kid
Now there is a no-nonsense cheeseburger!
This is everything! How fun and fantastical. No burgers here but an inedible veggie burger with unfamiliar ingredients. Lol. The SNL cast then was so magical. And love Bob Newhart too. Quite an eclectic installment. Thank you for another Time Travel Kitchen Adventure!
So, I'm reminded of when I first started my business in the late 70's and in order to get several real estate editors to the Chicago suburbs to tour some new model homes I asked Sam Sianis to cater our bus trip. He did and every single reporter came. It was awesome! (Beer helped. LOL)
The DC location closed at some point during the pandemic. Too bad was a solid lunch option.
It’s like a burger speakeasy!
This was a blast Jolene. Kudos for celebrating National Cheeseburger Day and sharing a bit of hidden Chicago. I did not celebrate the holiday -- bad planning. Real fun to know it inspired the SNL skit.
This is the place that is more of a cultural experience than a restaurant. Unfortunately, I’ve been to the one in DC which is not.
This makes me think I should write about Ollie’s Trolley which is DC’s historic burger!
Cheez UNDER the burger? What sorcery is this? Also, “Your goat is too smelly” 😂brilliant x
Added to my maps as Want To Visit 😆👍
Now I just need to find myself in Chicago.
What a great bit of Chicago history. I love all the connecting pieces!
I just watched the SNL sketch, hilarious! I'm really craving a "cheezborger!" What a fun and informative read❤️
Cheezborgers—yet another reason to visit your beloved city, Jolene! The Billy Goat Tavern sounds like a great find—and a super read!
I went to Billy Goat with my college newspaper crew and the energy was so wild--no other place like it! No Coke!
Baseball curses and food! There’s a book in there, Jolene
