Ok, while I am a professed ridejock girl enough of the What ride went down the road and I saw this ride is it still around... Let's talk cookhouse! We all need a good cookhouse on the road... Some good and some left alot to be desired, Let's here what you have to say I am sure the "Foodies" here will like to here this one.
1.st pick... Peewee's cookhouse.. they had a mean cookhouse,made the best breakfast (scrambled egg bacon and potatoes on a sandwich. and no one had it better when it came to there biscuts and gravy..
2. Dick Swane... while he had a mean breakfast that didn;t taste like the night before's grease, I didn;t do much with his dinners.
3. "The Boys" I mean the chicken boys and the beef boys... while they gave a good carny discount they were a little high in price but could make a mean beef sandwich fill ya up kind...
Now let's here what you all have to say about cook houses..[8D]
it's never 'DANGEROUS' being who you are

Marvin Wells had a nice cook house, and I really appreciated a hot breakfast in the morning.

Think it was Gary Crabtree's wife that would cook for us out of her grab joint. My memory is a little shakey, but that was usually the only hot breakfast we could get on the midway and at a very reasonable price. Otherwise it was grillin out back with they boys after hours. And OMG working for Prevost, worked with a guy and his family that made some BBQ to kill for. Problem was the boys trying to kick me out the bunkhouse after eating that. At least it was toasty warm in the bunk that night. Might of flattened that mall we were working if some one had lit a cigarette in the bunkhouse. [:D]

Agree about that!
Always a good time at flashes, and good food!

Always a great place to cut up jackpots in the morning!

I agree with you, plus, Bill Morgan had a great breakfast, but Wells cookhouse was great for everything.

Although not exactly following the subject heading but if you ever find yourself in Northern California between Eureka and San Francisco is a small town called Arcata. Here you will find an amazing cookhouse that is still open to the public. It was for the logging industry back in the day. Great meat n potatoes place. Huge servings, family style.
