Is that the one that shows Andy Griffith, or is that the other one?

Holy Irony Batman!  About five or six years ago, Chris Trail opened a second Ike’s at 51st & Union just a few doors to the west of Linda-Mar.  It lasted about six months or a year.  IIRC, David Sharp was a partner in that or they were trying to get David Sharp to partner up.  They were also talking to Beautiful Brands about franchising at that point.

LindaMar shows Andy on a set in the corner. The "other one" might be Arnolds hamburgers just west of Union. Not a bad place, and much better parking, I just never cared much for Happy Days decor.

I would never know to look at you that your culinary expertise is so profound.  Sounds like something I missed on their menu I should no longer miss.

40+ years in the same spot. Last time I had food from there was in the mid 90's and it was still as good as the first time in 1971.

There are those old-timers who will tell you that the current owners "f*cked up the fries."

Just spent a week in Hood River, OR.  Rode through the orchards on horseback grabbing cherries off the trees and eating them. Never was much of a cherry fan, but after that experience I can't get enough. I'll have to try this.

Went to Arnolds temporary site re-opening in the Crystal City strip mall on a whim.  Lots of car collectors brought their babies and it was a nice (if not hectic) atmosphere.
I loved the taste of the burgers but was overwhelmed by the amount of salt.   Maybe that is the appeal?  Ill give it one more shot in 18 months when they have their "permanent" location ready.

This was the thing I did not like about Smashburger.  Way too salty for me.

They earned the name "Suckburger" for a reason.

I ate at Smashburger once about 8 or 9 years ago and have never been back. Too many other good burger places.

We drove by and they were closed...Sunday, I think it was.  I never understood the attraction - they just aren't that good.  And the last time we went - which will always be the last time - both burgers were WAY too pink inside!  Like they had only drifted 'close' to the fire!  They tried to "fix" it by putting in the microwave for a while (at least that was the flavor profile the second time around) and giving us a $3 off coupon for our next visit.   Lol...

So many better places around.  And Lot-A-Burger has the perfect "too much salt" ratio down pat.!!  Much better than Arnold's.

But I guess there is always a market for just about any old kind of slop - El Charro up in Claremore has a huge fan base in that town!!   Some of the worst Tex-Mex on the planet.!!   They even have a couple of Listeria Palace Chinese places there that are better...!
