Penguin Point used to have a pretty decent breaded tenderloin, I had one about a year ago however, and it was awful. They changed oils I am told. R.I.P

I used to like the Burger Chef regular hamburgers.

Burger King--way back when--had a ham and cheese thing called "Yumbo" that was really good. This was when they called their fish sandwich the "Whaler."

McRib! Although, there is an alright alternative at QuikTrip stores, for when I get the urge.

I miss Wendy's Spinach Salad. :(

My friend at work misses the Filet O Fish from the 70's. She says it was so good back then that she used to request it for her birthday meal each year. She said sometime around 1979, 1980 something about it changed.

All these great memories! I remember the fried chicken at Hardees as well. I loved it!

When I got discharged from the army in 1976, my first job was as a manager trainee at a Jack in the boc in El Paso Tx.

I remember they had a sandwich called a Jack Steak Kind of a pressed mystery meat like the mcrib. Any one else remember these?

That is so unfair! I've asked several times and they used to tell me it was discontinued. Now they just look at me as if I have three heads (and I swear I don't, really).

In the cincinnati area we have JTM meat products and they have a riblet that is identical to the McRib.

In the summer we will go through a bunch of these when the family gets together.

Our Taco Bell has the previously-discontinued tostadas, chili cheese burrito and enchirito, but what I most miss is their green chili salsa in the clear packets.
For McDonald's, I miss the Arch Deluxe, with the creamy dijonaise, the McRib (which still shows up once a year for a month or so) and all the limited-time items that they used to feature like the patty melt, Barry Sanders burger (double cheeseburger with bacon and barbecue sauce), etc. And of course, the REAL french fries.

I'm bringing this thread back from the dead to ask a question...

Does anybody remember the Spicy Nachos (not the recent discontinued one, which was good as well) or the Beefy Nachos from the mid-90's at Taco Bell? I want to say the Spicy Nachos had flavored tortilla chips and jalapenos...

I'm still glad there's a free-standing Roy Rogers 5 minutes to my east.

Another missed item is the Super the way it *used* to be at Arby's. It used to be piled with shredded lettuce and sauce and now you get one sad limp piece. There's nothing "super" about it anymore!

I hate to admit it, but I picked up a McRib sandwich at the drive-through window just the other month. Too sweet, too messy and pickles don't go with sweet BBQ sauce.

They seem to come and go on the menu every few years.

Taco Bell's Pintos 'n Cheese used to be much larger than the current tiny portion.
Also, the Burger King in our town had a very nice salad bar.

Me too! In fact I went through the drive-thru one day last week just for that and it was gone from the menu. I just pulled out and left.

I also remember when Krispy Kreme doughnuts were big and light and fluffy, more along the lines of a Dunkin Donuts glazed doughnut.

I too miss the tostadas at Taco Bell, and I much preferred it when they used to apply sour cream using a squeeze bottle so that it came out in a thin line instead one big blob in one area of the super tacos or burritos.

my wife, who is pregnant, and therefore not drinking alcohol, decided to have a shamrock shake as a St. Patty's Day treat. Much to her dismay, the McD's in DC did not sell them this year.

The Taco Bell "Big Beef" Taco. It was a big crunchy taco - made the standard taco look small. They were the best thing Taco Bell ever had, IMO.

I work at McDonald's and we have the double Fillet-o-fish and Shamrock Shakes. You could probably also get a fried pie if you asked.

But I miss:
Arch Deluxe from McDonald's
Homestyle and Honey Butter Melts from Burger King (OMG those were good)
Fajitas from McDonald's

I remember the Jack Steak at Jack-In-The-Box. I loved that sandwich! It had a little steak roll with the split top and cornmeal crumbs dusted on the edges. The pressed mystery meat was actually made of the same meat as the frozen patties "Camp's" you find in the frozen food section. It also had a sweet dark smoky barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion rings on it. I recall getting that with a Bonus Jack and a lemon turnover--what a meal! Can't get any of those anymore.. :-(

Culvers here in Indiana has dropped it's seasonal menu WALLEYE Dinner and Sandwich. They still serve the fried Cod, but will not have walleye again 'til next Winter. I do like that fish, and will have to order it on our next visit to Wisconsin!

Jack in the Box used to have a Jack Steak Sandwich...I loved it...but that was many moons ago. And Sonic took away my Sonic Burrito with chili and cheese. I'm sure I could come up with some more but those 2 come to mind.

Jack in the Box Nachos. Chips, chili, cheese, jalapenos, etc.. These were great. They came on a large plastic plate with a plastic cover. It seemed like they always poured about 2 cups worth of jalapeno peppers over the top and these could be very spicy. I have some serious cravings just thinking about them.

Okay, here goes:

*The spicy three pepper sauce from Arby's (for some reason the Arby's in Lapeer, Michigan had this about three years before any other Arby's I ever went to did)

*Wild Gordita from Taco Bell (had a nice spicy sauce that they have yet to replicate)

*Arch Deluxe from McDonald's (I was, like, 10 when this came out and I loved it. So much for that whole deal a bout this being a "mature" burger)

*Triple Crunch Zinger from KFC (loved the sauce)

*Wild Whopper from Burger King (came with a packet of seasoning if I recall)

*Shaker fries from Burger King (shook them up in a packet to get them
seasoned)

*Tendercrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch (I still have Darius Rucker's ad for this stuck in my head)

*Might as well add the Indiana Jones whopper since I know they're gonna pull it once the movie's no longer showing

Hmm, I'm noticing a pattern here. Damn you, Burger King!

The BK Broiler.

Grilled chicken breast, tomato, and raw onion. Tasty and healthy.

I think they still have it. They called it a Chicken Whopper and then a Tendergrill or Tenderroast or whatever.

I stopped hitting that drive thru when they changed the name the first time and felt it was a good time to break off the relationship.

Plus, What does it cost now, Over $4.00 ? I'd rather grab a Bahn Mi for that.

Yet one more, which I think someone else already mentioned: The green sauce at Taco Bell. My TB never had it, but East Tawas (now closed*) and Standish did. Not quite as good as a regular salsa verde, but it tasted great on a TB burrito. I actually found a couple green sauce packets in my dresser drawer when we moved a couple years ago.

*For the record, the East Tawas Taco Bell was in an odd location, about a mile east of the business district, inside a Citgo gas station. This was also one of the only gas station-based Taco Bells I've ever seen that was full-scale, not a Taco Bell Express. It was open from 1997ish to 2001, sat empty for about seven years, and finally became a local restaurant not too long ago. It's since changed hands again.

More than one poster in this thread has mentioned this McDonald's sandwich which I never had:


So, I had to look up the ingredients:



It seems to be a Big 'N Tasty with a potato roll, mustard/mayo sauce instead of mayo, red instead of white onions, bacon and no pickles.

I wonder what the public (who, presumably, was already eating at McDonald's anyway) found objectionable?

At first glance, I thought it read "A slice of plastic American cheese." Whoops.

It! Cola from Sheetz.

Maybe the "adults only" marketing? I thought that was all a crock; I was 10 in 1997 and I loved the Arch Deluxe.

for some reaason we stopped going and when they switched to the ....product ... they now sell I actually gave my cop hubby a sandwich to take to the crime lab to have analyzed.. it sure wasnt beef to me.

Coming from Canada, a lot of things I had never seen before, but some sound good. I miss the pizzas from McDonalds.

Things I miss:

Burger King Big King (destroyed Big Mac's, and still does in Canada), international chicken sammiches

KFC Chicken Littles
Sheetz hot pepper relish
Pizza Hut Chicago Deep Dish Pizza
McDonald's REAL apple pie, fries and McNuggets, McDLT
Wendy's Spicy Baconator, the spicier spicy chicken sammich with the pepper jack and jalapenos

Arby's (around 93-94) had a sammich with a piece of roasted chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, barbecue sauce and ranch. It came in a clear plastic box. I can't remember the name of it, but it was great! Anyone remember it?

Hi-C Ecto Cooler, New Coke (not ff, I know).

Honorable mention to the lowly McDonald's hamburger. It's not discontinued, but it's never on the menu, and for an extra $0.06, you get 2 slices of cheese and another patty. They should be like $0.75. I can't in cheap logic order a regular burger anymore...so sad.

While not exactly a fast food, I miss the freshly cooked, fresh hot peanuts that one could get at Planter's Peanut stores. It was always a treat to pick up a bag & walk down the street, sit in a park, etc - back when shopping was typically done downtown.

Hardee's Chicken Filet Sandwich circa 1984'ish... They were the only place (that i remember) that had a chicken sandwich, and it was really good and black peppery.
Mashed potatoes from Hardees or KFC when it was good and not as fake.
Arby's lite grilled chicken sandwich circa 1994-1995 when it was good.
Chick-fil-a Deluxe Sandwich circa 1992 (CFA makes me want to gag now, it's horrible)
Any french fries before they started putting that stupid crispy coating crap on them.
Chicken Tacos from the Taco Bell Expresses inside of Wawa when they also had taco bell pico sauce.
Classic Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell before they started using the green chicken.
Burger King Original Chicken Sandwich (if you get from right franchise still good, but about every 5th one has a big chunk of gristle that ruins it)
Blimpie Turkey Sub (no more blimpies around here)
KFC Potato Wedges w/ Ketchup and Honey on them.

The Superbar at Wendy's
 
Hardee's Charbroiled Burgers (they were so very yummy). I think they had catchy names, which I cannot recall at the moment. This was around the early 70s.
 
Sonic's Slaw Dogs
 
Anything at Roy Rogers. I especially loved their bacon cheeseburgers when I could eat them. Those days are long gone, just like all the RR's in this area.
 
The Cinnamon Crisps at Taco Bell. Not those styrofoam things they have now.

I do recall the original chalupas at Taco Bell as being very good - why did they change them?
