Rax, anyone?

Does anyone remember a fast-food-type restaurant named Rax that used to be on Route 30 near George Street, I think where the McDonald’s was before it moved across the street?

(Wow, how’s that for a lot of used-to-bes in one sentence?)

Anyway, my mom used to take me to Rax all the time. But not only have I never heard of or seen another Rax, no one I talk to around here remembers this one.

With the wonders of the Internet, I did find this Wikipedia entry on Rax, which seems to indicate the chain met with rather sad circumstances. On the bright side, however, when I leave next week for a two-week vacation driving across the country, I might be able to hit one in the midwest.

Anyone else remember Rax?

  1. Yes I remember Rax restaurant on the Golden Strip in Williamsport, PA. Enjoyed their salad bar. Did have lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced. Wondered why they closed up? Friends and us use to eat there on the weekends.
