LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – We had some fun with the WLAF Throwback Thursday photo from WLAF’s Charlie Hutson yesterday. Thank you for helping us identify everyone in the snapshot.
We heard from Glennis Broyles. Mr. Broyles was the original owner-operator of the Burger Queen. He tells us that he sold the store in about 1975.
Thanks to Rusty Orick, Sharon and David Henegar and Ramona Costanzo-Atkins, we now have the folks in our photo named, and they are: Jay Huddleston, Ramona Costanzo-Atkins, Maria Widner, Jimmy Pierce, Rita Lynch, Dorothy Joan Smith and Sharon Branscomb.
Burger Queen was right where the Domino’s sits today on West Central Avenue. BQ was home of the Imperial Burger and the triple decker Royal Burger, along with chicken dinners. Breakfast was also served at BQ from 6-10 Monday – Saturday. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/21/2022-6AM)
