P.T.’s Olde Fashioned Grille is the originator of the paper burger order ticket, an owner of one of the area restaurants said.
“We were the first ones in town and we have been here since 1990,” said Joe Pate, owner of the P.T.’s Olde Fashioned Grille at 2420 S. 17th St., Wilmington [Map this].
Pate said when he began working for P.T. ‘s in 1993, the burger ticket was in use.
“I was a customer before that,” he added.
The rectangular-shaped ticket allows customers to include their names and circle all the items they want on their sandwiches, along with choosing drinks and sides like fries.
The system offers diners a stake in the action, Pate said.
“The customers like being part of the experience,” he said.
P.T.’s Olde Fashioned Grille has four restaurants in Wilmington, one in Leland and one in Chapel Hill.
