Does anyone remember”the Gobbler”?

cart087Our daughter, Julie sent me the following link from a Madison TV station featuring a story about the old “Gobbler” restaurant on I-94 between Madison and Milwaukee.  The story was originally published/aired on December 10, 2015,

After looking at the story, it jogged my memory.  I did some searching, I found a few more stories to add to the history and mystique of this Wisconsin icon.  Take a look, and if you wish, add your comments in the space provided below.  Cheers!  ChuckR
