Not here. Worked for Southwestern Oilwell Servicing in Lovington, New Mexico in the ‘60’s though if that’s any help.

No sorry,but I was partial to the swill they served up at Hoagie Hut. And you couldn’t beat the 99 cent breakfast at Scottys in Nitro,WV.

My fav was White Tower --- little tiny all fat burgers with fried onions on a toasted bun. Most folks would order two or three.

But sadly, there is no more White Tower --- good thing too. If the food Nazis hate McDonalds, they would got totally insane over the fat content of those burgers.

Never made it to Swenson’s during my time in that part of the world.

Have you gone to Siebel’s in Burtonsville yet? I ate there lots in high school.

I had a friend who worked at Burger Chef in Grand Haven, Michigan in the 70's. They changed it to a Med One in the 80's. Then late in the 90's (or maybe early in the '00's) they tore it down to put in a Home Depot and strip mall.

But bordens? No. I've only been to WV once (just passing thru)and never in Morgantown. So good luck in your internet quest to find this elusive breed of employee.

This was back in the late 70’s. We’d go and eat there after spending the day skydiving at the Cleveland Parachuting Center.

Ah yes,good old Nitro,WV. Where the railroad tankers had skull and crossbones painted on them. Hurricane..is that close to Saint Albans? Where they have the Chuck Yeager monument? It’s just a rusty old missile.

I remember that place. We used to slide in there for a Fat Tommy's Hunkaburger DeLuxe Platter after a long day of earth boring for the US Geological Survey at their China Tunnelling facility just outside Zanesville, OH.

Nah, I actually skydived there. It was Amish country, and they’d show up in their buggies and watch the morons jump out of planes.

The center is still in business and is pretty modern. When I was there it was all ratty Cessna 185’s and 32’ round surplus chutes.

I was in college, and ran out of money before I ran out of luck.

what’s your favorite burger joint

My father-in-law's farm. Ha grills burgers on nothing but mesquite he's harvested/cured over the years. Best burgers on earth.

Hurricane isn’t too far from St. Albans. I think there is a Yeager statue in Hamlin, where he is from, south of Charleston. My folks only lived about a year in Hurricane before they bought a place in Yawkey, just down the road from Hamlin.
