El Dorado Freddy's: Chain Restaurants in Poems and Photographs

by Danny Caine Author and Tara Wray Photographer

In this collection of photographs and comical poems, author Danny Caine and photographer Tara Wray explore the culture and identity behind the American tradition of chain restaurants, drive-thrus, and 2000 calorie meals for 10 bucks. Set in the Midwest, El Dorado Freddy's not only deals with our absurd relationship to these businesses and the food we know we shouldn't be eating, but also with the singularly American identity that they have come to represent.
