Midwesterners love their Maid-Rite Diners, and now Texans can see what all the spelt-rong fuss is about. The first Texas Maid-Rite Diner will open in Arlington at Green Oaks and Pleasant Ridge near the Kroger for "excellent visibility." The Maid-Rite menu is packed with traditional diner favorites such as hot dogs, French fries and a long selection of "rite" sandwiches, plus a whole separate barbecue menu. From PegasusNews:
Founded in 1926, Maid-Rite Diner is a MidWestern favorite known for its "loose meat" ground beef sandwiches served on hot buns. According to the release, Maid-Rite Corporation is in "extreme expansion mode" -- sounds dangerous -- "contemplating offering Maid-Rite franchises in all areas of the United States." They want to open 40 to 50 locations around Dallas-Fort Worth. Yikes.The diner also appears to host a Miss Maid-Rite competition. Here's hoping the restaurant's Midwestern origins will mean a panic level lower than that rolled out for Texas' In-N-Out openings.
