Saturday Night Funny At All American Hamburger In Massapequa

Little kids are too cute. They always ask why even when they are past the ''why" stage which normally starts at around 2 or 3.

I decided I wanted All American located in Massapequa, New York. My Grandmother used to take me there on weekends when I would sleep over which was usually every single weekend. It is my favorite memory of her.

After I placed my order, a Mom with her two, cute little daughters ordered them hot dogs and french fries. The older girl, who must have been around 7 or 8, says to her Mom, "why can't I have a knish and french fries instead of a hot dog and french fries?"

"It's not healthy says her Mom". Ooooookaaaaaay, yes, a hot dog is so much better than a knish? NOT!

The confused look on the girls face just made me laugh to myself. It reminded me of that commercial where two girls were promised ponies and one girl got a real pony and the other got a toy pony. The one that got the toy, knew she was getting a bum deal.

That was the highlight of my day, lol.

Jackie, I used to LOVE that place growing up!  I revisited it recently (and have pictures somewhere) and forgot about all the grease (which is probably why I loved it so much).  Still, the lines are long---it is a Long Island institution :)

Hi Carole! Yes it's a great institution, lol. I got lucky tonight. I was able to walk right in, place my order and leave in less than 5 minutes. I guess the below freezing temperatures keep people in :)

Jackie, What in the world is a knish? It must be a popular item if it's being served at restaurants??? Maybe an east cost thing???

Hi Ruth, It's a thick bread pocket and it's square or round and it's filled with potato. Much better than a hot dog! :)

Hi Toula, Me too. I love that commercial. That little girl threw daggers at him with her eyes, lol.
