Hamburger Inn
Mangum, OK
former Golden Skillet
Oklahoma City, OK
The Hamburger Inn opened around 1928. The concrete building was produced by Portacon Buildings of Tulsa. The interior seating consists of six stools. [map]

This former Golden Skillet building now houses All Pro Cleaners. The sign has been adapted. This fried chicken company was established in 1964. The first location opened in 1968 in Richmond, VA. The chain grew to more than 200 locations mostly in the South. In 1981, the company was sold to Dairy Queen and most locations closed shortly after that. There are only a few still in operation, mostly in Virginia. However, there are many repurposed buildings with their giant skillet shaped signs left. For more, see this website. [map]

former Mr. Burger

This former Mr. Burger now houses Burgers & Fries. I believe this regional chain was founded in the 1970s. The only locations that I know of that are still open are in Dimmit, TX; Abilene, TX; Guymon, OK; and Hooker, OK. There were other locations in Arkansas. There are still a few repurposed signs around. [map]
