I'm a big fan of this guy's blog. I mean,how can you not like a blog with a title of "Smokin' Chokin' and Chowing with the King"? Smile

Glad to see Madvek's is still going. I'm pretty sure the original owners, George and Vi, have died, so I wonder if it's still a family outfit. I remember George always having a lit cigarette hanging out of his mouth when he cooked and served.
Used to eat there after almost every Little League game - huge basket of fries for a quarter, and the loose-meat burgers were great, even though they did use a plastic squeeze bottle to put some sort of phony cheese on them. Don't think cholesterol had even been invented yet, so there were no health issues to worry about.

Madvecks is now owned by the family that owns Dicks Body Shop...the wife runs it. As far as George goes he was not the nicest man...I had a girlfriend that worked there and his hands werent always fixin fires. If you know what I mean.
