The 25-cent lunch special might be gone, but Rosedale Bar-B-Q still here

In the 1950s, my favorite childhood summertime treat was walking with neighborhood buddies to Old Hickory Bar-B-Q (I’ve forgotten the actual name) for a chopped beef sandwich in a hamburger bun with a small bag of potato chips and a RC Cola, all for 25 cents. Rosedale Bar-B-Q, known back then as Rosedale Sandwich Inn, also offered a special 25-cent noonday barbecue lunches. Today the 25 cent barbecue lunch in Chow Town will cost you $6.25 or more.
