First McDonald's In Austin
I remember the first McDonald's in Austin. Way back before Ronald McDonald, the Happy Meals, the Big Mac, etc. It was parked on the extreme southwestern edge of Capital Plaza, near the H.E.B. This was back in the days when McDonald's didn't have indoor dining. It was more like an old-fashioned hamburger stand where you walked up to the window and gave them your order. Then, if you didn't take the food home, or eat in your car, you could sit on the outdoor benches on either side of the restaurant. It was all a sort of white porcelain look with a golden arch on either side.
