I miss the McSteak (?) sandwich.  It was an oval-shaped patty, sort of like salisbury steak, with some sauce concoction that was kind of a cross between gravy and A1.  It came on some sort of roll, not one of the burger buns.

Also the McDonald's onion nuggets.

Wow, what a terrific thread, I am glad it has been "re-activated" with recent posts to have it come back onto page one. I went through the entire 7 pages worth of posts to get up to speed on this provocative journey down memory lane
 
I am with Westlay from Charleston-IL and my So Cal colleague Cat Tracks, the Carl's Jr California Roast Beef sandwich was dynamite and when they went corporate eliminating them back in the late 70s or ealy 80s, it teed me off so much that after years of being a regular consumer of their Cali roast beef, burgers and hot dogs-which they also stopped serving, I have never returned.
 
As also mentioned, I miss the original Jack in the Box breakfast croissaant sandwich and their Spanish omelette
 
The original Mickey Dee fries were so much better, they ranked 2nd in my book after In n Out fries, now they are kaka
 
The previous Coca Cola was far superior to the current "classic" which although they want you to belive is their previous formula, it is not. My best pal worked at the Coca Cola Botttling plant in Downtown L A when the change over occurred so I got the inside scoop of their plans ahead of time and purchased several cases of Coke before the changeover
 
I also miss Wendy's birch beer, no longer offered, theirs was a fruity-redddish color style,
as Ricky asked Lucy-"waaaaa appaned" to the Wendy's fish sandwich they had about a year ago?, it as a very tasty and hearty fish filet sandwich that should be returned
 
When traveling to visit relatives in Metro NYC in the 1960s and 70s, I always enjoyed drinking Nedick's orange drink out of a paper cone container placed into a metal holder and munching a frank with their "Boston" style bun.
 
I miss Pabst's premium beer, Andeker-far better than Michelob
 
Bring back Helm's Bakery........
 
Finally, although not food or drink related, I miss the original Van's canvas sneakers with their legendary ground-glass soles, the onliest sneeks I have ever worn that would have the tops wear out before the soles-even when using them to play basketball on outdoor courts. When Mr Van passed away in the late 70s and the children turned over the firm to corporate America franchises after being a local So Cal phenom, they stopped making the ground -glass soles, what a shame!

JohnJax, Wendy's has the fish sandwich on their website, saying "for a limited time only."  I think that "limited time" is Lent, which begins this Wednesday (Ash Wednesday).  Last year they advertised the fish sandwich, including with coupons, in our weekly Catholic newspaper.

Thanx for the heads up, if they are using the same fish filets as last year, I'll be consuming it often until they stop serving it again. I am not a catholic, roman or greek, so pardon my ignorance. Is eating meat on Fridays or during Lent still prohibited?

I think God has enough to worry about, pretty sure He doesn't care about our eating habits.

You must try the Wendy's fish fillet. But be warned, our Wendy's keeps asking me to try this new Bacon Blue/Bleu Burger. It looks like it has bacon & blue/bleu cheese, hence the name.

Yes, that's still the policy, no meat on Fridays during Lent (which began today with Ash Wednesday).  I'll try the Wendy's fish this year.  McDonald's fish sandwiches used to be much better, now they're disappointing!  Here's the Wendy's home page advertising the fish; hope you're able to find them near you:

I think Sonic still has the fritos chili pie here in Texas.I'll have to look the next time I go there. Hardly ever eat at McDonald's but I don't ever recall seeing around the San Antonio area the Shamrock Shakes.

Without disparaging catholic dogma,  I'd like to know whay the meat-the flesh of a fish is not considered "meat" while the flesh of other animals is considered meat? IMO, quite bizarre

Jack in the Box had a delicious patty melt back in the 90's.
1/4 lb patty
grilled onions
bacon
cheese
mayo sauce
all on, and this is the most important part, rye bread.
not a patty melt without rye bread (like the sandwiches they try to pass off as patty melts now)
I've emailed them a few times asking if they are ever going to bring it back and no response.  lol.

 Hardees:  big twin, mushroom and swiss, fish sandwich, BLT cheeseburger
 
Dairy queen:  fried mushrooms, beef nuggets (fried like chicken nuggets)

mcdonalds: mac jr., double big mac

KFC: the ORIGINAL popcorn chicken.  it was more like fried chicken skin. omg it was sooooo good. im sure people complained that there wasnt enough chicken in them and they evolved into what they are now. i thought the first version was the best. 

Long john's:  SOOOOOOOOOO MISS THE PEG LEG!!!

oh me too, steak and egg biscuit was awesome. i worked there in the early 90's.  moved to kansas where we have a hardees thats almost 100 miles away, and they dont serve hardly anything from the original menu. 


hardee's frisco sandwich was good with the onion mayo that came on it. i used to get a side of the onion mayo for my fries.  hardee's also had beef and cheddar sandwiches and you could get a side of the cheddar for curly fries. mmm.

I remember seeing advertisements in 1995 in Port Angeles, WA fr McPizza, I still remember laughing about it, so McD's has obviously tried it more than once.  What I miss:

Wendy's salad bars
KFC's all-you-can-eat bars (still available some areas)
International Chicken Sandwiches from BK
And that really is it....didn't eat much fast food growing up, and try not to eat much now, but those 3 stand out:)

Hardee's long-gone fried chicken was the second-best fast food bird that I've ever had. The only FF chain with better chicken, IMO, was the now defunct Golden Skillet chain on the East Coast. By the early '80s, GS had become a subsidiary of International Dairy Queen, which proceeded to run the fried chicken chain into the ground. I also miss the fried apple pies that McDonald's used to offer; McD's current baked version is a poor replacement.

Add me to the bandwagons for McDonald's fried apple pies and Hardee's char-broiled burgers (man, I've hated those new Hardee's burgers since they day they were introduced).

I really wish Arby's would bring back the Triple Cheese Melt and Market Fresh Ranch Chicken sandwich. Also miss the sliders from the dearly departed Little Tavern (much better than White Castle, IMO--though I'll take a White Castle burger any day of the week!).

Not too many years ago Arby's had a pot roast sandwich that was pretty decent, although I can't remember if it was a "limited time only" item or on the regular menu.

For a very short time in the early 90s - probably 1991, that was when I was seeing this girl who worked at the Arby's across from Kennesaw State U. - Arby's had a "Chicken Fajita Pita."  For a few months there, I was eating about five a week.

A long time ago a joint called the Lil Duffer made a pizza burger.  An old friend and I were remembering them the other day.  Google shows there are still Lil' Duffer joins in Iowa.  I'd like to know how they made the pizza burger.

I continue to miss the little fried burritos that Carl's Jr used to have, as well as the larger one that J in the B had. Carl's Jr has a fried burrito now, but it's not quite what they used to offer. Those little guys were great at 2AM after the bars close.
I also miss the Ortega cheeseburger that Naugles used to have, as well as their burrito which was mostly lots of cheese.
Taco Bell used to have a chili-cheese burrito that was good.
Yes, the McDonald's fries cooked in beef tallow were great, and they used to permit me to order a quarter-pounder done medium rare. Yum.

1. McDonalds Steak Sandwich - which was test marketed here in the mid west back in the early 80’s. A grilled chopped sirloin patty on a hoagie bun - very good taste but didn’t sell very well.
 
2. Original Recipe KFC - the way it tasted back in the 60’s and 70’s when it really did have a unique spicy flavor. Current modern day O.R. Kentucky FRAUD Chicken is bland an tasteless and devoid of any original 11 herb / spice flavor except for salt and pepper a little.

The only thing I can think of that I miss were the old Popeye's 'chicken' nuggets that were almost all fried bits that came with a little packet of flavor crystals.  I found them and the rather strange sweet and sour sauce quite addicting.

Our Sonic carries the Pickle O's but they use to have a great fried steak sandwich. It and the pickles are the only thing I would order. Now I am hooked on their $1 hamburger; it comes w/mayo, lettuce, pickles, onion and tomato. I always ask for extra mayo as they don't tend to put enough on. It and a orders of fried pickles makes a great lunch.

McDonald's deep fried apple pie -Popeyes is pretty close,the cinnamon and sugar coating is a nice touch, also the McRib sandwich, had one it in Texas a few years back.

Burger King's steak sandwich, on the long roll with onion rings,lettuce and bbq sauce.

KFC the kentucky nuggetts were a favorite.

I will list a few items that may be available at places around the country, but have disappeared locally.

HoJo's 3-D burger. A precusor to the Big Mac, the 'special sauce'  made it something special to be sure.

While thinking of Howard Johnsons, add the seafood rolls they served, whether Clam. Lobster, or Scallop they were as close as you could get to the local seafood shacks !! ('cept for using Clam Strips instead of Whole-Belly's) Their Lobster Rolls were the 'Hot-Buttered Recipe' and were outstanding. Add to that their Butter Krunch Ice Cream...my favorite flavor.

Hardee's Fried Chicken. Haven't seen it since the Carl's Merger. We've lost all out Louisville/SoIndiana Hardees for a couple of years. I miss their Burgers too.

No access to the Carl's Western Bacon-Cheeseburger..Rally's does a fair job with their version, but the Carl's/Hardee's was outstanding for a FF Burger.

Baskin Robbins Pink Grapefruit Ice. My forever favorite ice cream flavor.

Our local Culver's does a fine job with their Walleye Sandwich. However it is only available seasonally.

Hardee's Fried Chicken can still be found at its original source Roy Rogers, but you are going to have to come to Virginia or Maryland to get a decent version of it.

If you find yourself in Canada, the McDs up there still served the fried pies.

First think that comes to mind is the original Arby's sauce.  Arby's has never been the same, I remember drowning my sandwiches back in the late 70's in that stuff.  I can't remember the name possibly bullseye if anyone knows.
Also Taco Bell's quesarito (?) cheese, green onion, and pizza sauce, then put in their cooker/steamer.

I miss the Hardee's Husky from back in the late 60's and early 70's - one of my fav burgers ever and the chicken fried steak sandwich from Sonic. Our Sonic's still serve the Pickle O's and I get them quite often though they are a little over priced but still worth it.

Carl's Jr jumbo chili dog: It disappeared last year after only three months, but I availed myself of them as often as possible while they lasted. A fat, smokey frank served inside a decent bun, smothered in very good chili (for FF) and topped with raw onions, hold the mustard please.

Jack in the Box sirloin barbecue bacon cheeseburger: Their version of Carl's western bacon cheeseburger, complete with the onion rings. I liked it better than the Carl's version, alas, it disappeared late last year from the line-up.

Jack in the Box "Frings": Tasty combination. Long gone.

Jack in the Box Chili-Cheese curly fries: Oh how I miss this item. I overdid these back in the nineties. The squeeze pump cheese product was so fake, so plastic, and SO GOOD. So was the chili.

I'm pretty sure Hardee's had the same jumbo chili dog. Wasn't bad at at all but no Hardee's or Carl's Jr here in this part of Florida.

Carl's bought up the Hardee Name several years ago, so the relationship of the two "Dogs" would be logical.

No Hardees anymore on the Indiana side of Louisville either. The franchiser went under and  all 12 or more closed a few years ago.  Still a few in Louisville (KY side) but none convenient enough to be worth a ride.

Carl's was one of the better FF choices when we lived in SoCal.

Does anyone remember a "burger" that was sold by KFC during the early 70's. I think it was called a "Colonel Burger" or something like it. I vaguely remember it, but know I liked it.

In the early 70's in Wichita there was a Kentucky Roast Beef about a mile from our house.  It only lasted a few years but it was definiteley an offshoot of KFC.  After it shutdown the owner converted it to a KFC as he owned the local franchise.  I think they also had burgers on the menu.

I think the volkswagon in that picture was my first car, just put a fence post and two-by-four bumper on the back!! Ok, burgers at GD Ritzy's and chocolate chip shakes at Rax.

I know it's probably because of the economy or something, but I miss Taco Bell's $.98 been burrito and hard taco combo!  I would get that with a Cheesy Gordita Crunch when they first came out.  Was that around 2002, maybe?
I love reading this thread, btw!
