Long lost chain


This restaurant chain never took off, likely their food was too well grounded for high flying North Hollywood. But this is the kind of place that folks in Warwick and Pittstown (often misspelled Pittston) dream about. It is likely that some hipster in a large metropolitan city has already recreated the concept with a one-syllable named restaurant or food truck. Perhaps "SPUD" or "TATES" or "PRIMANTI."
 
I suppose our more fortunate Southern friends could ask to substitute the meat in their Meat & 3 to achieve equivalent dining bliss.

People dining there found it stunted their growth at the same time as asking multiple women to marry them.

Do celebrity (non-chef) restaurants ever do well?  Other than Kenny Roger's Roasters there's been more flops than successes.

I must confess, potatoes are something I’ve never fantasized about. Perhaps a more exotic fruit or vegetable would have ensured success, or naming the chain after one of his many female “associates!”
Who wouldn’t want to dine at Judy’s Melon Fantasy, for instance?

Love all those potatoes pictured...but not all on the same plate. Imagine, someone thought this was a good idea!!

By the way, the reason I posted this in "Lighter Fare" and not "Non-Roadfood Chains" is because this was a parody advertisement. (That and I know about Joe Rogo's love of Lighter Fare Loaded Baked Potatoes).

What would a Rogo’s serve?
Thru sliding windows, of course.

You’ll have to use Rogo-ogle, not Google.
