You don't see a lot of Go-go in this town anymore, either.

The region's food culture changes, always. The 1960s-1980s gave us these chicken-Chinese-fish carryouts. Before then, people could get quick casual meals at lunch counters, steam-table places, and sandwich shops. And before that, there were restaurants serving food like chicken dinners, cheap fried oysters, and baked crab dishes.

The US lost most of its regional foodways by WWII. The more recent carryouts are the product of cross-polination between regions. Mumbo sauce probably comes from Chicago.
