Maid-Rite: 1/3 Pound Pure Iowa Beef Loose Meat Sandwich

It’s a Loose Meat Sandwich (a sloppy joe without the tomato sauce), not much more needs to be said. This is the original and has been since 1926. Did not know this but they are also the first to¬†feature a “car hop” or drive-in service in the US.
