mmm winkys. Used to be a winkys and a zayres in warshington.


There was a Winky's in Greensburg. Big rumor of the time was the burgers were made of kangaroo meat.

Winky's makes you happy to be hungry...

They sold burgers? Always got the fish n chips. Course I was probably 12 ish the last time I ate there. But I remember some tasty meals.

Winky's went out of business in 1982? http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=ms ... gers&hl=en

Seemed like I remember them being around in the late 80s.

When I was a kid, I couldn't understand the difference between Gee Bee and the Bee Gees

They declared bankruptcy in '82. Article says future was uncertain, so they might have been around till the late '80s.

I started at Grove City in 1989 and don't remember seeing one when iI went to Pittsburgh at that time.

That's easy, one was a store and one was a band.
