Who Remembers WINKY'S Drive-In Restaurant? How 'bout that slogan? "Winky's Makes You happy to Be Hungry!"
Winky's was just a few blocks from where I grew up all of my life in the 6th Ward of Altoona. Do you remember some of their specialties,
Hamburgers were ONLY 15 cents!
The Big Wink - outsold everything.
The Ground Round - the big quarter pounder burger - mayo, lettuce, tomato wasn't the combo people wanted
The Great One - a big roast beef sandwich - again, mayo, lettuce, tomato wasn't the combo people wanted
..but I LOVED their chocolate milkshakes!
