Have You Tried A Maid-Rite Meal? You Should!
While driving home from Hilton Head along I-95 we discovered the Maid-Rite Diner.
We stopped at the Maid-Rite in Wilson, North Carolina at Exit 121 of I-95.
Maid-Rite hamburgers are truly unique. They're sort of a cross between a traditional burger pattie and an old-fashioned Sloppy Joe.
The sandwich, the fresh aromatic fries, the thick, rich shake -- all were great. And the service was quick, efficient and caring.
Maid-Rite began in Iowa but now there are dozens of Maid-Rite diners in 11 states and the operation is still growing.
Here's how it all began: In 1926, way back before Facebook, and even before TV, people just didn't know how to waste time. But, being really bored paid off for butcher Fred Angell.
He worked to get just the right combination of a special cut and grind of meat and a selected blend of spices. When a deliveryman tasted Fred's new creation, he said, "This sandwich is made right."
With that, the Maid-Rite was born.
Fred was quite a sandwich maker but not much of a speller.
Maid-Rite's select line of seasoned loose meat sandwiches are made from 100% USDA midwestern fresh ground beef served on a fresh steamed white or wheat bun, with your choice of ketchup, mustard, onion and pickles.
