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.

anyone remember the taco light at taco bell? The shell was kind of like the base they use now for the Mexican pizza--this was in the 80's. Also, Hardee's used to have a pretty good fish sandwich. the McD fries (original) were the best.

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.

Long-time reader, first-time poster. I do miss the following:

- McDonald's Arch Deluxe
- Burger King's Italian Chicken Sandwich
- Roy Rogers. Period. I am near some of their rest stop locations, but it's not the same.

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.

Around here (KC Area) BK has brought back the Italian Chicken temporarily. Also, Wendys is going to discontinue at least here the chicken strips.

The beef stroganoff baked potato @ Wendy's was always pretty good, IMO. Ditto for the chicken a 'la king one, also. Both were d/ced in the mid '80's. Hell. A Wendy's burger was actually pretty good back then, also...

Pete- Just get a pair of jumper cables...run them from your Harley to the terminals on your pacer battery when you come up to the drive-thru window. It all works out!!

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.

Pete,
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.

But the "charco-broiled" taste will never be back.
