Meat popsicles reign supreme at this cheery All-American fast-food joint.. In Short With more than 120 locations sprinkled throughout U.S. shopping centers, this quick-service chain has become a favorite among sububan shoppers. The employee-owned corporation staffs its branches with perky workers who don the brand's iconic 1960s-inspired uniforms: whimsically colorful jockey caps and striped smocks. The short menu offers 100 percent turkey franks, which are served skewered and battered, as well as all-beef wieners in a bun. Extras include "Cheese on a Stick" (also coated and deep-fried in the secret-recipe batter) and shoestring fries.
