What Tiff Williams wouldn’t give for a double order of dollar wings and burgers from Murphy’s right about now.
“Things have changed so much and I haven’t been back in many years, but I loved Murphy’s Pub, where you could get dollar wings and burgers. We thought we were living it up by going and eating there," says Williams, now a Warner Brothers TV writer.
"I had a friend who worked there and would get us free drinks. It became a spot where we would meet and have some good times with friends.
"There was another spot that had the best chicken gyros. I have to say: Despite the U of I being in the middle of the country and two hours away from a major city, it had some of the best food I’ve ever had."
