Last week’s post about the probability of a McDonald’s opening on Broadway — and not in Pike/Pine — cracked open the love/hate relationship we all have with fast food chains. Often unhealthy, usually 100% business optimized, we’ve noted that chains seem to, eventually, die on Capitol Hill. We’ve also noted the tide of nostalgia that sweeps in whenever we write about the chains — especially those dearly departed locations of yesteryear including but not limited to Taco Time, Taco Bell, KFC, a Jack in the Box and two Burger Kings, a Boston Market, plus a Sizzler and a Skipper’s.
Here are a few pictures we’ve managed to collect of fast food restaurants Capitol Hill past. Thanks for sharing with us. If you have something more to share, let us know in comments or on Facebook.
Visiting the Broadway Jack in the Box was like visiting another planet. Thanks to Davey Jones for the picture.
