Rockyfeller Hamburger System, No.22 – Camp Bowie

The Rockyfeller Hamburger chain was founded by Robert M. Chesney of Fort Worth who owned and operated the restaurants until the early 1970s. This prefabricated metal diner was constructed in 1937 by a contractor named Wilk of Tuba, Oklahoma. It may have been altered somewhat during the 1950s. One of four Rockyfeller hamburger stands originally in Fort Worth, the chain was known for its nickel hamburgers during the Depression era. The building, one of two remaining Rockyfeller diner structures, was moved from its original location in 1987 with plans to reconstruct it at another site.
