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.

                                      Carl's Jr. -- California Roast Beef Sandwich (roasted peppers and jack cheese....best fast food sandwich ever)

                                      Taco Bell -- Chili Cheese Burritos (apparently available at some locations, but I haven't seen them in 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.

                                            McD's had a taco salad for a summer in 2003ish. It was actually lo cal...for McDonalds.

                                              McDonalds had the Cheddar Melt with fried onions, a cheddar sauce on a rye bun.We loved it!

                                                I miss Hardee's roast beef sandwich.

                                                Also, the steak sandwich from Sonic that was on the bun, not on toast.

                                                  It was the 70's

                                                  I was in college

                                                  Taco Bell had the Bell Burger

                                                  Jack in the Box had a delicious Spanish Omelet.

                                                  I miss the 70's.

                                                  At least some of it.

                                                    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.

                                                      how about those k-mart subs that they used to sell out of deli cases next to the check out counters?

                                                          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.
