Anyone remember Henry's Hamburgers. They had great burgers in the Chicago area. I knew of 3 locations, on Fullerton and Central, on Western accross from Riverview and on Rt.83 in Wheeling. Does anyone know when they closed? Did the fast food giants knock them out of business?
Also I remember when I was a kid Wimpy's hamburgers downtown. Anyone know if this chain is in existance anymore?
Wow, do I remember! In 1963 I was going to school at the Ray Vougre School of Art in Chicago. At lunch time I would go around the cornor to Wimpys. The very best!! This Wimpys was right across from the the Old Water Tower just off of Michican Ave. I dont think it is still there.
In the 60's and early 70's there was a Henry's at 79th and Cicero, on the Northwest corner, and there was a Wimpy's at 80th and Halstead, just down the street from the Capitol Theatre and a funeral home. Lots of good memories of that area. I went to Olgesby school. There was a Wimpy's at the Evergreen Park Plaza years ago.
Yes, I just returned from Chicago. Took a wa;k to the cornor Michigan & Chicago Av. whefre I attended art school and ate Wimpys hamburgers in the 60's. Both were gone. So sad.
