A few years earlier, on my first attempt to eat from Hamburger King (547 S Decatur Street) in Montgomery, Alabama, was closed by the time I got into town. They’re only open Monday through Friday, 7 AM through 2:30 PM.

I made sure not to have a repeat of my previous debacle this time around. Another important thing to remember is having cash on hand. Hamburger King is cash-only, but there is an ATM.

Hamburger King, which opened in 1970, is a tiny spot with a few counter stools and a couple of tables for four. If you’re into dives, then this is the place for you, and I mean that in the most loveable way possible. It’s my kinda joint, no-frills.

I was very close to ordering breakfast but knew that only a cheeseburger and a hot dog with cheese were the way to go. Fries aren’t available, only chips, so I skipped out on those. My burger and dog were ordered with cheese, mustard, onions and cooked on their well broken-in griddle.

I didn’t have the luxury to hang out and eat another burger since we drove through Montgomery and were on a time crunch. I’m glad I tried the hot dog, but this is Hamburger King, and there is only one head of household. Next time, I won’t even hesitate to order two cheeseburgers, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll do a ham & cheese sandwich too!
