P. Terry’s (story #5)

I have fond memories of eating at P. Terry’s burger stand, in Austin TX with my grandparents (on my mom’s side). We often get hamburgers, and lots of crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and perfect fries. The restaurant has several locations some outside of Austin and I think the first one originally opened in the 50’s or 60’s. My grandpa Wheeliss has his own story though about how P. Terry’s got it’s start. He tells it with a grin, holding his E-cig in one hand and with an southern accent mixed with something that I can’t describe. He tells it something like this “So there was this guy, and his name was Terry. He used to cook hamburgers in his back yard for his friends, and one day he was cookin, but he had to go peee.” here he would pause to chuckle, then continue, ” All Terry’s friends started chanting ‘Pee Terry Pee.’ Terry ran around and peed, and that is how P. Terry’s got it’s name.” Even though the story is kind of gross, I still laugh because it brings back memories of P. Terry’s.
