Sure, if that is what you like.  I'll pass.

I remember a Hot and Now in Lafayette Indiana that I ate at moderately frequently back in 1993, near the Lafayette Square mall.  Recently I was looking at that area on Google Maps and discovered the area where it was, SW of the mall, has been completely redeveloped so of course it's gone now.

Hate speech is a nonsense concept; the truth is hate speech to those that hate the truth.

People who use their free speech to try to silence others' free speech are dangerous fools.

We had one of those in Ypsilanti.  It was closed for several years before it was finally torn down.  I thought it would have made a good drive-through marijuana store.

I was hungry and only had a $5 on me, so after going to the K-Wings game, I went to McDonalds and got a three dollar combo.  Going to Mickey D's reminded me of another nasty burger joint that we had in Michigan called Hot and Now (sometimes called Hot N Nasty or Rotten Cow).  I was curious if this chain was anywhere else in the United States or if my fellow boardmates had a similar kind of place local to them.

I was never impressed with Mattoon, Illinois' Burger King. There are others that have left me underwhelmed, but the names escape me.

Apparently, the only national chain from the double drive thru boom that survives largely intact today is Checkers/Rally’s.

And probably not coincidentally, many of their new locations are remodeled Hot 'n' Now sites.
