Gino's Burgers & Chicken

Recommended Posts

Big news up here is the re-opening of Gino's in Towson this week.

It was a fast food burger chain from the 1950's started by Baltimore Colts defensive player Gino Marchetti. I remember going here as a kid. You could get burgers as well as Kentucky Fried Chicken there. In the 80's and 90's it was bought by Marriott and all the stores were changed to Roy Rogers restaurants.

I had heard that in the past year that a Gino's was opened up in King of Prussia, but now, they are opening a branch closeby.

On a quick look at the menu, they are serving burgers, chicken sandwiches, fried, onion rings, salads, and shakes. They are also bringing back the Gino "Giant" which looks like a Big Mac.

I have no idea when the next time is that I'll be in Towson, but this makes me feel nostalgic for the Gino's we had in my suburban Philadelphia town in the 1970s (maybe even the 60's). Until McDonald's opened when I was in junior high, it was the only fast food place in our town. I used to love the Gino Giant.
