Who doesn't remember eating at Howard Johnson's? Wonderful entrees like the turkey dinner and the famous fried clam strips, along with great ice cream sundaes (pineapple was always a favorite). All of the Charlotte locations are long gone, but for a chain, the Ho Jo's Restaurant always was a good choice.
1960's commercial for those wonderful fried clams!
