YAY!! Somebody remembers it!!  :D

I started thinking about it, and I think they may have only put the mixture on the Big Shefs, which were very similar to a Big Mac. They shredded the lettuce and then put some sort of mayonnaise on top of it. It kind of reminded me of tarter sauce, but I think it was probably something else.





















I remember too!
I think we had those when I lived in Maryland.
I was just looking at the website for In and Out Burger in California!
I love that place. Wishe we had those out here!  :(

I remember Burger Chef. There were at least 3 here once upon a time. I ate at In and Out Burger in San Francisco. It was very good. One of the best fast food restaurants around here is Hardee's.

Just went to look at the article.  GOD I hate AOL.  WTF do you do about that effing floating Flash ad?  Sits right on top of the article and there's no close button?

Anyhoo, I shrank the text enough to read it.  They have some good writers!  Very clever.

I agree with you Jack! Hardee's IS very good. My favorite fast food restaurants nowdays is Arby's and Wendy's, although I really don't stop at them too often anymore, maybe once or twice a month. :)

We had lots of Burger Chef's around here Chuck, but they were headquartered in Indianapolis, so that's probably why there were so many of them. I always thought they were just an Indiana chain, but after reading some of the posts here from people in other states, I guess I was wrong! :)

Anyway, Burger Chef was very similar to McDonald's. Just about every sandwich McDonald's offered, Burger Chef duplicated, and often times the names were very similar too. Big Mac (McDonald's) Big Shef (Burger Chef). If I remember correctly, they spelled Chef with an "S" for some reason. ::)

And then they had the "Super Shef" but I can't remember what that was. I just remember the name. lol

I'm going to Google "Burger Chef" when I get home and see what I can find, I'm curious now.

McDonalds could never get my order right.   :laugh:  I hate mustard, and I hate onions.  (I'm probably the only Italian who hates onions  :laugh:) so I would always ask for that to be held from my burgers.  I always ended up having to scrape them off the burger, and I could still taste it anyway.

(aaaahhhhh the legacy of the picky eater  :laugh: )

Burger King always got it right.   ;D ;D

The equivalent of Hardees in Los Angeles and apparently in many of the western states is Carl's Jr. I was wondering what was going on when I started seeing commercials with the same advertisements as Hardee's. It must be kind of like in the West the restaurant in the East known as Shoneys is called Big Boy. They also had a great diner in LA called Johnny Rockets. They had the jukebox things on the tables and everything. Mel's Drive-In also exists in LA and in fact the one where the old movie American Graffiti was filmed is there.

Allow me to complicate things even FURTHER Jack! ;)

In the Midwest (Indiana and Ohio) Big Boy is called "Frischs (pronounced "Frishes" like the word "fishes" but with an added R in it) and up north in Michigan Big Boy is called Elias Bros. :)

I am familiar with Shoney's. I've seen them many times during my travels down through the South. We have a Shoney's here in Indiana too, but it is more like Waffle House or Bob Evans, and it is entirely separate from the Big Boy restaurants.

I TOLD ya I was gonna make it MORE complicated! ;) ;D :laugh:
