It’s late on a Friday night. I’ll bet you can’t guess where I am right now. It’s probably better that way.

Lately I’ve been reminiscing quite a bit about a place called Burger Express.

It was a burger chain with at least two locations in New Jersey, but it closed when I was about four years old. I remember it so vividly. What I liked most, aside from the burger, was the train you could sit in while you ate. What I wouldn’t give to eat at Burger Express, in that train, just one more time.

The two Burger Expresses I knew of became Burger Kings at the same time. Today one is currently “Chen’s Hunan Chinese Food,” and the other has been razed and is part of a parking lot for something called “The Wine Library.”

When I search the internet for “Burger Express,” I find no information. If any of you out there can tell me more about the history of Burger Express, lunch at Hot D***a is on me.
