Here's a drawing of a Burger King restaurant, which I based off of two locations in my area:

Nice...myself, I like the old mansard burger king better. In Tampa, there is only one old style BK open. The modern BKs look like it could be anything...

The Burger King that is near me, located in Penndel, PA, is still an old school 1980's Burger King, minus the current signage on the building.

I know this is a weird question, but does anybody know if ANY Target stores have a Burger King inside of it?

Burger King had locations inside Jamesway stores in the past. Currently, Burger King is opening restaurants inside Walmart stores.

The Ecorse, Michigan Burger King just reopened a while ago after it was closed for a few years. The exterior now resembles the remodeled Southgate store I have a photo of on the previous page, as does the Northline and Allen location in Taylor, Michigan.

The defunct Argentinian fast-food restaurant Pumper Nic (1974-1999) had a logo that resembled Burger King's logo in its early days (the 1970s and 1980s) and is named after pumpernickel, a type of German bread. Their mascot was a green hippo named NIC.





A typical Pumper Nic location in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina in the 1980s:

There is now also a Burger King inside the Taylor, MI Walmart, which replaced previous tenant Blimpie Subs about a year or two ago during a renovation that also saw the old Walmart logos taken down for new ones.

Burger King improved their Fish Sandwich. I used to not like it, but now it's pretty good.

The entry of BK to the Argentinian market forced Pumper Nic to change their logo, which seemed to take the wind out of their sails. Here's their later logo:

And here's their final logo, in which they changed their name to "Pumper" in their final years of operation before filing for bankruptcy in 1999:

BK in my neighborhood just underwent a very extensive remodel.

Personally I don't want my burger joint to look upscale and elegant.
I want it to bring back good memories of sucking down grease in the 70's!  Wink

I have a story:
I was camping in Monson, MA, and a massive storm hit the area while I camping. So we deiced to go to fast food, and the closest option was Burger King in Sturbridge. When we got there, there was a massive puddle in the parking lot. I kept going in and out of it. This puddle had to be at least 20 feet wide, and 6 inches deep. Here's the thing though, this wasn't just any storm, this was the remnants of Hurricane Mathew in October 2016.

A new Burger King is opening today in the Crafton-Green Tree section of Pittsburgh.
It is at the corner of Noblestown and Baldwick Roads.   The site was formerly home to a local
sporting goods store (Reed Sports) and a fresh bread and sandwich shop.  Both were
demolished to make room for the new BK.

Ironically enough, directly across the street is a restaurant that was a Burger King
back in the 80's.   It closed in the early 90's and is currently a Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe
(a local chain).  So BK bailed on this corner because there wasn't enough business,
only to come back twenty-five years later.

Also across the street, on the opposite side of Baldwick, is a Health and Wellness Clinic
run by a chiropractor named Dr. James Winer.  He single-handedly keeps a half-dozen
small radio stations in business by buying up hours and hours of airtime during the week
to hawk his products and treatments.  I suspect now that he is surrounded by Fast Food
(which he rails against) he will have plenty to talk about.

Back in the day I used to date a girl who lived on Baldwick Rd. and spent plenty of
time at that old BK location.
