The Kwikway Lives in East Oakland

When my favorite fast food restaurant closed on Lake Park in Oakland two years ago I said goodbye to the good old non-trendy restaurants. Afterall, we had lost Biff’s , Daves, The Hofbrau in just the past few years . There were three Kwikways, all built around 1960. The sauce on the hamburgers is a tangy blend of onion, chili, tomato, onion you won’t find anywhere else. I even froze some burgers for posterity when I knew Lake Park was closing its doors (see OldiesCountry.com for full story) …
But, lo and behold , happening by 62nd and International Blvd after an A;s game we ran into the familiar ‘lightning’ logo.
Despite its very bad (as in dangerous) location, I had to try it to see if it was still the same. Actually , its called Kwikway chicken now but I’ve always gone for the burgers.
And, yes, it’s still the same, though you don’t want to go there in the evening and take along a friend or two…
This is five star terriory – Qiuality, price, even ambience (*in a strange way, though it appears the front facade has been remodeled , but the big logo sign is fantastic…

Burger

The r eceipe is unchanged in 50 years. who would have thought the worse location would have outlasted the others… but go for the burgers or even the chicken . Where else can you get a double burger for 99c – and not just a McDonalds burger with mustard and catchup but an ’Oakland ’ burger with spice ! One of a kind for sure… The Lake Park location is being restored architecturally, from what we hear, though the food there will be different. So, long live the last remaining Kwikway at 62nd and International, Oakland!
