the "international" buffet at Wendy's...which really only included Italian and Mexican type foods. So, I guess the whole world was really represented there! Seriously, who in the world doesn't eat spaghetti and soft tacos?

That was the "super bar". Tacos were very good. At the Wendy's I ran we had only hard shell corn taco shell, though. Super Bar still operating, BTW, in some "elite" mega-high volume franchises.

any of those in the East Coast?

when I was on the Atkins diet, the salad bar at Wendy's was great. Tunas Salad, and lots of salad items. Then, most of the salad bars left and they started selling preprepared salads. Bummer.
Super Bar would be good, but I'd just like the salad bar back.

the problem with a McDLT was that it used twice as much styrofoam as a BigMac since they had the sandwich in two parts.

I remember the switch from styrofoam to card board. I wasn't happy then, but in retrospect, it was a good change.

In the late 80's and early 90's, the McDonalds in the Kansas City region at least had a burger of the month. The three that I remember were;

1. The Patty Melt - Quarter Pound Patty on a Rye Bun with grilled onions and chedder cheese sauce.

2. The McJordan Burger - Quarter Pound BBQ Bacon Chesseburger complete with 2 onion rings on it.

3. The Mushroom Swiss Burger.

I miss this one. 1993.

Wendy's had a patty melt when I worked there in 1992. Rye bun, fried onion, swiss cheese & I think 1000 island dressing?

Fried pickle o's from Sonic and their steak sandwich, and Hardee's Husky hamburger. Our Popeyes here still make delicious onion rings.

For a short time McD's offered a Johnsonville Brat which was pretty good. I also miss the chicken littles from KFC.

I miss the Roy Rogers Roaster(chicken). It was pretty good,in fact the Washington Post used it as a "ringer" in a taste test with some higher class (and price) roast chicken and it won.

But then again, I pretty much miss Roy's as there is little left of a once quite good chain.

I still see the brats once in a while. I think it's more in the fall during football season.

Arby's had computer touch screens to order from but no one could do
it.(maybe too simple) so they took them out and I don't remember carved roast beef then.


A recent memo from corporate office stated we will be getting those.

Arbys jalapeno bites with the bronco berry sauce were discontinued by our company a few months ago. I loved those things and the sauce it came with.

Back in the early to late 70's Burger King had a ham and cheese sandwich called "The Yumbo"...does anyone remember this sandwish? It was on a 6", seeded hoagie bun and was wrapped in yellow wax paper.

Anything Roy Rogers had was good too...Roast Beef tasted like Roast Beef and their chicken was always fresh...whatever happened to them?

I remember that one, the "Yumbo". Was pretty good. I imagine the food costs on same was pretty high. Too bad. BK needs to realize that their current offerings involving traditional beef & chicken products are not what consumers are looking for 100% of the time. Oh well.

What about the BK Broiler, a quality product I would be happy to get at a roadfood place. But they keep changing the name and the product so I don't bother anymore.

Roy Rogers' Double R-Bar burger. It was a burger with ham and cheese on top. Smothered the top roll with Roy's Horsey sauce and BBQ sauce and a few onions.

I miss Roys and the few left at the highway rest stops are a poor remnant of the original outlets. There are a few real Roys centered around Frederick, MD.

It was the Cheddar Melt and it was pretty good.Not a big fan of cheese sauce though.

That's because it's not cheese so much as hydrogenated oil. But before I looked at the ingredients, it was great!!

Adjudicator: You are the only person I've known other than me that remembers the Yumbo. Glad to know that I am not getting senile and making up sandwiches that never exsisted.

You mean, of course, nothing much has changed aside from the fact that Arby's no longer uses an actual beef roast and no longer carves a roast for each individual order. Arby's now uses an emulsified and formed meat product made from beef chunks, ground beef and water with chemicals and preservatives. Actually, this is taken directly from Arby's own nutritional chartdescribing the makeup of its roast beef:

"Trimmed boneless beef chunks (minimum 70%) combined with chopped beef for a maximum of 12% fat. Contains up to 9.0% of a self-basting solution of water,salt, sodium phosphate"

We had the Yumbo here in Connecticut, too.
I had forgotten all about those things.

I also remember the salad bar at Wendy's.


How about the McDonald's MDX ?
