2 - fresh cut fries at most any fast food place
3 - A&W / Stewarts root beer in a frosted mug
4 - Wendy's salad bar where one could dress up their baked potato

    03. Popeye's original onion rings.

      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!

                          Oh yeah, two more:

                          *Those weird fried tacos that Burger King sold for about three days

                          *Anything from Wendy's Superbar

                            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.

                                  LOVED the Arch Deluxe and Chili McCheeseburger.
                                  The BK Broiler was good and so was the Chicken Cesar burrito at Taco Bell.

                                        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.

                                              When we were first married 1974 or so we used to go to arbys often, they had that roast beef suspended by chains in a hot glass box... it was wonderful actual roast beef..

                                              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.

                                                        I miss the Big Chef from Burger Chef and the condiment bar
                                                        The original Enchirito from Taco Bell and the Bell Beefer
                                                        Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips....I know they are back east Ohio and PA mostly.
                                                        The BK Whaler and Yumbo...mmmm

                                                          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.

                                                          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.

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