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?
