Worked there with some many other BHS townies! Mike Brown was the manager when I was there and Barney Hall was the Assistant Manager. Shelby was another manager.
I remember dashing there from the school when class let out for the day, trying to grab fries & a drink for the bus ride home. The place was a madhouse every afternoon at that time.
