I tried Burger Master once. It was back in 2002, shortly after I arrived in Great Falls; sadly, I did not like the burger and never returned. But I know that Burger Master is beloved by Great Falls – lots of memories from folks who grew up with Flying Cheeseburgers and Green River drinks. Maybe it’s similar to Taco Treat – you have to have grown up with it to really appreciate it.
But still, it’s pretty sad to see Burger Master being closed down. The crazy long drive-thru, the logo…classic stuff. I suppose once the West-side location shut down a few months ago, it was just a matter of time, and now it’s official: tomorrow will be the last day. Any of you plan to make one last trip and grab some pix?
On a more positive note, however, our local Starbucks has escaped the corporate chopping block (full list – PDF). I figured we were safe, since we don’t suffer the over-saturation of large markets, but it’s still reassuring to know that my French Roast beans and quintuple-shot Americano will still be here.
