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.

There is a single solitary Roy's still operating here in Cincinnati, over 500 miles away from the next nearest one. It is owner operated and is much like the original franchise. The Double R is very, very popular there, perhaps more popular than the signature roast beef sandwich

I wrote up the Cincinnati Roy's back in August of last year, and here is a link to the thread in question:

Popeyes in Northern Virginia (D.C. suburbs) still has the best onion rings around here, although spiciness varies by store.

Nearest Hardees is in Fredericksburg, VA. And, while I miss the Big Twin, I also miss the BK clone of a decade or so ago.

Wendy's no longer makes the Chicken Club.

This is a sad day for America.

I wish they would stop messing around with their chicken sandwiches. IF IT AINT BROKE, DONT FIX IT.

BK's International chicken sandwhiches.

The french was the Chicken Cordon Bleu, the Italian was chicken parmesean and the American was (I believe) a chicken club. A whopping 3 countries in their "international" line - LOL, but I remember liking them when I was a teen in the 80's.

This is a great thread. :)

The beef-related frying liquid that Paul from Knoxville mentioned was actually "tallow" (http://tinyurl.com/y7fyo8). Irrespective of how that fat was rendered, wow, those fries were the best on the planet without question.

P.S. If somebody mentioned the word "tallow" here before me, I apologize.

Shoney's/Bob's 'Big Boy Burger'. I'm still aghast that they canceled a signature item from my childhood.

Another thing I miss are the old Arby's Crispy Fries from the '70s. Get a big holster of crispies and never mind the burger.

Shoney's may have sold-out the Big-Boy Logo and items, but they are still very much alive. Frisch's has the license here in Indiana for the Big Boy Image, and the menu items. In the Mountain States JB's does the same. AND In SOCAL I know of at least ONE BOB'S BIG BOY that has the legal license to use the Logo and Menu.

The one I know of is at the Main Street Exit in Hesperia, just west of I-15. It opened in the late 1990's claiming to have purchased the defunct corporate logo for BOB's. It is a retro diner kind of like Peggy Sue's out in Yermo.

The Big Twin, circa the early to mid '70's, was my favorite of all FF burgers, hands down. I have mentioned this before. The Hardee's (other than breakfast) crowd would quadruple if the original burger cooking method was re-introduced. For those of you who may have missed it; those WERE the good 'ole days. There is zilch business in any of the Hardee's locations in my area in SW Georgia after "breakfast" is over. I have learned that the employees of these places now park their vehicles in "prime" customer parking spaces after the breakfast hours just to give the illusion of business, etc. That is pathetic. DISCLAIMER: Not originally from where I currently reside.

I'll put in a few positive remarks about our Hardees here in Chipley:

1. Not throwing in the towel. A few years ago, they used to close at 6PM &
that gave the rest of the business to the competition. Even though it's 1.5
miles from I-10, it's the first place many of the Fla. 77 traffic from "downtown"
sees. Of course, the new Sonic is going to give everyone fits!

2. Improved service - they bring your order to your table; the restaurant is
neat & clean. Yeah, the breakfast shift is still popular, but lunchtime has
good crowds (high schoolers, travelers, etc....)

3. Truckers - the only FF outlet in Chipley that has a truck parking area,
despite not being next door to I-10.

4. Seniors - have a group that comes in the afternoons to chew the fat (no,
not the burgers); it's a nice, quiet atmosphere compared to the McDonald's
down the street.

5. And where else can you get ice cream, malts & hand-dipped shakes?

At the risk of being publicly humiliated, let me say that I'm one of the very few people that actually REALLY MISSES McDonald's ill-fated ARCH DELUXE hamburger. From the peppercorn bacon to the premium bun, I thought it was top-notch for McDonald's.

But then again, what do I know, I also miss McDonald's Spanish omelet breakfast bagel, Taco Bell's chili cheese burrito, and even (gasp), the old PRE-Roy Rogers/Carls Jr Hardees 1/4 pound single cheesburger (w/ 2 slices of cheese, rare back then) that used to drip down your neck if you didn't have a napkin handy!

Arthur Treachers battered chicken (no, not the fish, but battered the same way).
Still nothing like it exactly.

Ginos Giant, the Gino Genie (actor Dom Deluise), & the original Kentucky Fried Chicken licensed under the strick supervision of Colonel Sanders himself. Sadly most of them eventually turned into Roy Rogers restaurants whose food made me physically ill (Marriot uses too much MSG)

Kenny Rogers Roasters, better than Boston Market by a mile even if Kenny Rogers didn't know what he was doing and also the best fast food macaroni and cheese ever invented! Nobody understands if you're gonna do mac & cheese it's NOT supposed to be day-old mush!

Oh, also Popeye's Cajun Sparkle seasoning (technically not discontinued or a purchased item, but few locations seem to have it anymore) and Bojangles "Dirty Rice" (also not discontinued, but there are none around much anymore and Popeyes imitation dirty rice is so inferior and dry)

Finally, Kentucky Nuggets are still available if you don't mind traveling to Maryland (see my other post).

Church's has a pretty good dirty aka "Cajun" rice. Nice & hot with jalepenos. Agreed Popeye's dirty rice is the pits now. Remember making it from scratch daily many years ago (fresh scallions galore...). Popeye's RB&R still pretty good, IMO. I gave up on their chicken years ago.

I will check out Church's Cajun Rice next week while I'm in Florida. Thank you!

Also, I noticed Bojangles is expanding, so maybe there's hope after giving up on Popeyes.
Bojangles also has some awesome fast food breakfast items too which Popeyes doesn't.
Popeyes red beans & rice may be good, but try to find some of it in their new Cajun burrito. What a great idea gone completely wrong. I've never gotten anything but a dried out chicken strip, dried out rice, and a couple dried beans. Pathetic.

The Mc'Donalds "QLT" Was the burger that was served in a special foam 2-piece foam package similiar to the egg breakfast tray that had the bottom bun, a quarterpounder patty on one side of the divided tray and the top bun, with cheese (if ordered) lettuce, tomato & mayo on the other and when the top foam lid was snapped on the bottom foam tray the hot stayed hot and the cold stayed cold as their advertising stated.

I never liked them much because they were the most expensive item on the menu at the time and I always preferred the cheese to be melted.

The "QLT" wasn't around for long as I recall (a year or two) and I remember them available around 1973 0r 74.

The "McDLT" came along much later to compete head-to-head with the Whopper as the original "QLT did not have onion, ketchup or pickle

If anyone thinks I'm incorrect on any this please let me know.

Hardee's use to have pretty decent fried chicken. I like them because they were only two miles from my house. Any other fried chicken was ten miles away. If you could catch them right out of the fryer, it was pretty good along with their cole slaw and mash potatoes. Regardless, it is long gone and no longer available.

Only their company owned discontinued the fried chicken. I have found some franchise owners still doing it.

I am not saying they were great but I am saying they were handy.

Their biscuits are still very good.
