When I visited New Orleans about 6 months before Katrina, I noticed a Fatburger franchise was located in the French Quarter, right near the riverfront. I thought that was interesting, considering there are none in Texas (so far at least).

I think that little original stand should stay put, be restored, and start serving burgers again. I mean, hell, WHY NOT?

LOS ANGELES TIMES

Lovie Yancey, 96; founder of Fatburger restaurant chain

By Dennis McLellan, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
February 2, 2008

Lovie Yancey, founder of the Fatburger restaurant chain, which began with a popular post-World War II hamburger stand in South Los Angeles, has died. She was 96.

Yancey, who had pneumonia, died Jan. 26 at Olympia Medical Center in Los Angeles, said her daughter, Gwen Adair.

Yancey had already operated a restaurant in Tucson and was living in Los Angeles in the late 1940s when she began thinking about launching a new food business.

"I settled on hamburgers because they were the fastest-selling sandwich in America," she told the Wave newspaper in 1985.

Yancey launched her foray into fast food by partnering with Charles Simpson, who worked for a construction company and reportedly used scrap materials to build a three-stool hamburger stand on Western Avenue near Jefferson Boulevard.

Opened in 1947, the business was called Mr. Fatburger.

"The name of the store was my idea," Yancey said. "I wanted to get across the idea of a big burger with everything on it . . . a meal in itself."

In 1952, Yancey shed both her business partner and the "Mr." in the hamburger stand's name, and Fatburger was officially born.

"I think of that stand as like a little postwar survivor that's a tribute to the entrepreneurial spirit of an African American woman who really did usher in what became a very good model for a franchise business," Adriene Biondo, chairman of the Los Angeles Conservancy's Modern Committee, told The Times on Friday....

There was a Fatburger for a brief time here in Pittsburgh but has been gone now for almost a year. I liked it, but wasn't anything special.

I've eaten at all the locations in Las Vegas and Henderson (since 1995) and have never had a bad meal! They've always cooked everything to order.

Deanna, I literally work across the street from the Westwood Fatburger. I try NOT to eat there, if only because it's not cheap and I value my arteries, but I can say that the quality seems to have come a long way since your last visit. I will add, though, that the one in Sherman Oaks (which used to be down the block from me several residences ago) was superior to the Westwood location, at least by my admittedly shaky recollection.
