Oh Boy! Look what I'm serving up next week!

If you live in Lorain County, then no doubt you know who this is. It's the advertising mascot of Midway Oh Boy!

This winking burger boy has been the symbol of the popular Midway Oh Boy restaurant on Lake Avenue since it opened in 1953, and his appearance hasn't changed one bit. An Oh Boy double-decker hamburger serves as his body, and he makes the 'OK' sign with his thumb and index finger to express his approval.

Midway Oh Boy's fans express their approval by regularly jamming the booths of the restaurant while they enjoy the one-of-a-kind Oh Boy with its top secret sauce. It's one of my most favorite places to eat. (That's the link to the restaurant's website on the right side of this blog's home page.)

So stop back here at the blog next week to learn about the history of the restaurant and see some vintage Midway Oh Boy advertising. And maybe even a few surprises!

(But don't expect to see the secret recipe for Oh Boy sauce.)
