One Way Journey
Had a good lunch today with GeezBob at Cassell's, one of the last old-fashioned burger joints in the mid-Wilshire section of Los Angeles.
When I first moved back from Washington, DC to Los Angeles I lived two blocks away, but it's been years since I've been to Cassell's. It's still good, but a little dirtier than I remember.
You order at the grill and push your tray down the counter. After you get your sandwich you pass by the "buffet" on the way to the cashier. The "buffet" consists of burger condiments (all home-made at Cassell's), potato salad, cottage cheese, pineapple chunks and peach halves. Big signs warn: only one trip through the buffet, so don't even think about going back for more peach halves.
