    Is "Roy F. Tener" the predecessor of Tener's?

    Yes!

    According to Tener's website:

    Ray F. Tener opened his first Western store in 1930. His love of people and strength of character were the building blocks of the Tener’s Tradition. Nearly 80 years later, our stores are still owned and run by families born and raised in Oklahoma.

    Cool stuff. My dad once worked for Rent It for a while in the '80s. I worked there one summer as well. I didn't realize the business was that old.

    It's funny to see the phone numbers. Roy Tener's is CE .... something. My phone number growing up was 2-2556 in the Rogers (RO) exchange, so we told people it was Rogers 2-2556. I'm just grateful that I have a phone that stores numbers so I don't have to know all ten digits, anymore!

    Anybody else remember what business had the number CEntral 2-3311? Hint: it was one of the most widely known numbers in the city for quite a few years...

    This is a wild guess but was it Paul Meade Insurance{tall paul}?

    Nope, not Tall Paul -- but that was a good guess!

    Time and temp?

  10. Default Re: 1969 Ads: Patio Hamburgers to Rent It

    Nope; I don't remember that number... Maybe the 232-3311 number wasn't as widely known as I remember it to be!

    Wasn't that the old number for the Oklahoman??

    Seems like I remember it being printed on the front page of the paper for a long time.

    Bingo, Pete!!!

  14. Default Re: 1969 Ads: Patio Hamburgers to Rent It

    Paul Meade was something like 524-1541.

    Yes, 599-1234 still works. However, the rather lengthy intro message is an ad for a hospital. I remember when it began with "Part of all you earn is yours to keep".

    I played in a band in my early 20's and I had a girl come up one night in the middle of a set and ask me for my phone number. I told her 599-1234. A few minutes later she came back and yelled at me "That's time and temperature!" and I said "I get off at two and how hot am I?"

    BBQ: That is baaaaaad (but it did make me smile)...but begs the question, did it work? LOL

  18. Default Re: 1969 Ads: Patio Hamburgers to Rent It

    Interesting...looks like the movies in the one ad ran the gamut from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to a rated X film, The Killing of Sister George (probably PG by todays standards)

    Hmmm, wonder of Ramon Griffin does portraits? Repetition is one thing...

    lol . . . =)!
    it's almost like the start of an old Monty Python sketch . . .
    Customer: I understand that you do portraits. I'd like to have a portrait done.
    Counterguy: Sorry. We don't do portraits.
    Customer: Yes you do.
    Counterguy: No. We don't.
    (etc.)

    I will say that I doubt the Rent-It Ad would be deemed acceptable today.
    Unlike The Killing of Sister George. (well . . . not the killing per se . . . but the movie about it . . .)

  20. Default Re: 1969 Ads: Patio Hamburgers to Rent It

    Radical: true..true..didn't make it all the way to the that one.

    Question: the Charcoal Oven ad mentions other places/locations. Were they sister restaurants operated by a different name?

    Something I've always wondered about "The Charcoal Oven" is whether the concept was some sort of national franchise. Back in Boulder, CO. we had a Charcoal Oven that was more of a restaurant than a drive-in but served some of the best burgers ever (at least up until the late 60s). Then they added pizza to their menu and it became more of a barely-above-average pizza place. In 40 years down here I think I've eaten at the Charcoal Oven maybe three times (on account of it was so far west of where I was living)--and this was at the older location before they moved but I seem to recall that I thought they were pretty darn good burgers. In an old-fashioned setting. I especially liked that authentic charcoal char on the meat--but I always had to remind the person taking the order that I didn't want to see any pink in the middle. I would have said, "Cook it to an internal temperature of 142-deg" but this was back before digital thermometers . . . or even digitals . . . were invented. =)

    Mr. Vernon Eccles, The Patio, was a very nice man. I swear that Dolores
    invented the Cesar Burger.

    Does anyone remember the Patio? Apparently not.

    At any rate, around 1984 I ate an entire Caesar Burger and rings with only
    one napkin.

    That should be a world record.
