Shocked to find recently that a Wendy's single was something like $3.49!
The few times we go to Mickey D's or Burger K, order from the DOLLAR menu. Or just go into Mickey D's for a 'senior coffee'.
Usually just want to use the bathroom facilities.

Yes, I do remember college years (late 60's) when a meal was under $1.

You have to remember that when these prices were in effect, the minimum wage was about $.40/hr and a good living wage was around $60 a week!

My, how things change!! I wonder if we weren't better off!
