Everybody-

I saw this site and my memory of that Gino Giant came back.I still think till this day that was the best fast food burger ever, with their special sauce.Also the KFC chicken back then really was finger licken good...

I LIVE IN COCOABEACH FLA. NOW. BUT IN 1972/73 I LIVED IN WEST PHILLY.I ATE AT THE ONE AT 63rd AND GIRARD.AT THE TIME 63RD ST.WAS A BORDER LINE THAT SEPERATED BLACKS FROM WHITES.ME BEING A WHITE BOY, AND LIVING ONLY A BLOCK AWAY, I TOOK MANY CHANCES GETTING JUMPED BY THE BLACK DUDES JUST TO EAT ONE.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THAT DAM BURGER WAS WORTH RISKING YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU WERE A KID.YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IN THE 70'S WE HAD GANGS AND WOULD FIGHT DIFFERENT ETHNIC GANGS...

IT'S FUNNY I JUST TOLD THAT STORY JUST LAST WEEK.GUESS WHAT? NOBODY EVEN KNEW WHAT A GINO GIANT WAS IN THE SOUTH.ISN'T THAT A SHAME? OH WELL I'M GLAD I EXPIRENCED IT ALL...

YOU HAD TO WATCH IF A BLACK DUDE WAS COOKING THAT DAY YOU MIGHT FIND SPIT IN YOUR BURGER AND VICE VIRSA,IF A WHITE GUY SAW A BLACK DUDE AT THE COUNTER SAME THING.SO WE WOULD LIFT UP THE BUN AND PEEK IN THERE,IT WAS ROUTINE. SORRY TO GET SO GRAPHIC, BUT IT WAS TRUE.HELL THAT MADE IT EVEN MORE RISKIER TO GET ONE.SO YOU SEE HOW MUCH WE LOVED GINO'S BACK THEN.I WISH I COULD GET ONE NOW.
OH! THE GOOD OLD DAYS...

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES,
MIKE ROMOLINI
COCOABEACH,FLORDIA
