Fried Clams at Church's?  When did they have fried clams?  I would have jumped all over that.

    Oh there are so many...where do I start? 
    I first remember eating fast food in 1983...so that is my first point of reference.
    BURGER KING:  Spooners (soft serve ice cream in a dish with oreo cookie crumbs), Original Chicken Sandwiches when they were delicious then, 2 for $2.22 (two burgers and two small fries for $2.22), their chicken tenders when they weren't shaped liked kings, but were delcious little chicken tender shapes, their old french fries (I actually like those better than McDonald's) - they were so good!!!, Sunkist soft drink out of the fountain.
     
    WENDY'S:  Hot Dogs in the delicious toasted bread bun, their old recipe fries which they recently changed to the awful natural cut fries with sea salt
     
    MCDONALD's:  Old french fries - they were soo good, Chocolatey Chip Cookies and McDonaldland Cookies in the little boxes, dessert that came with the Happy Meals, better tasting chicken McNuggets, fried apple pies shaped like a long rectangle.
     
    KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN:  French Fries (remember when they were actual fries not the potato wedges - the fries were out of this world), Extra Tasty Crispy chicken (the chicken breast used to be cut differently too - almost in half along the bone), All You Can Eat Buffets at many locations.
     
    HARDEES:  Their Big Roast Beef Sandwiches, their old recipe for french fries (they were kinda soft in a good way, salty, and yummy!), Frozen Yogurt Chocolate/Vanilla twist cones (so great on a hot summer day and very low in fat - tasted really like ice cream not frozen yogurt), cinnamon sugar dusted fried apple pies shaped in a long rectangle and came in a fun little box, Big Chicken Sandwich that was fried and tasted way better back then.
     
    PIZZA HUT:  Really good tasting pan pizza (for some reason now the crust tastes not as good and doesn't have that slightly crisp texture at the bottom of the crust
     
    RESTAURANTS IN DEPARTMENT STORES:  Why did they get rid of these?  I remember Montgomery Wards, K-Mart, Thalhimers, etc. had their own restaurants (more like cafeterias which served up burgers, fries, sandwiches, etc., but all made-to-order).  I used to love going shopping with my mom as a kid and getting a french fry and a Mr. Pibb as a snack while out and about, and the fries back then regardless of where you went (fast food or department store) tasted better for one reason - Trans Fats.  Now that everyone has gone to Trans-Fat free oils french fries just really aren't the same. 
     
    One last comment - it would be very smart of the fast food chains to bring back on a rotating basis their former items.  It would bring people out for a taste of nostalgia in droves!!!

      McDonald's - Burgers fresh off the grill as opposed to stale out of the holding drawer.

            I live in China, so I miss a lot of fast food. Within the past year, we have gotten several Burger King outlets and they are wonderful.
             
            KFC is everywhere here, the annoying thing is that most of my favorite items from KFC doesn't exist here. One is buttermilk biscuits. No cole slaw, which to me does not make much sense, since Chinese like cabbage. No extra crispy chicken, beans, or macaroni and cheese.
             
            McD's is not good here either. They sell the fried pies, but they are all funky ass flavors like green pea, mango, banana, etc. No apple either.

                  Miami Don. As a fellow south floridian  (you're about a hundred miles south of me) I'm surprised mango flavored anything would surprise you. I'm expecting mango and guava flavored potato chips any day now in the stores :)

                      I miss many of the old things.  And seriously, if you are allergic to something check ahead of time with the restaurant.  If you're on a special diet or are a vegetatian or vegan, check ahead of time with the restaurant.  But, don't ruin it for those of us who miss our favorite fast foods.  We have to eat too, you know and you don't have to ruin it for those of us who don't require your dietary specifications, for whatever reason.

                        Fried cherry pies from McDonalds

                        The fried cherry pies were so good, and also the fried apple ones.
                         
                        a gas station round here had deep fried apple pies, but they changed the recipe last year now and the crust is too sugary and not crisp or flaky enough so I stopped getting them. The caramel  thingy from Taco Bell is a poor substitute as well.
                         
                        I heard about a place in NYC that sells double fried cherry pies, but no way I will be in NYC anytime soon.

                                      I grew up in South Florida....
                                       
                                      Little Caesars: Hot ham and cheese sandwiches..the bread was made of pizza dough.
                                       
                                      Taco Viva: what ever happened to them? They had a yummy burrito I would get with melted cheese over the top....had to eat with a knife and fork.
                                       
                                      Burger King: Ham and cheese with lett/tomato/mayo/american cheese slice on a long roll.
                                       
                                      Rax:  The best milkshakes!
                                       
                                      Popeye's Spicy Chicken Sandwich: It's different now.  Used to be on a round bun with pickles, lettuce, mayo.  Craved them during my pregnancy.
                                       
                                      Pizza Hut: BBQ Beef pizza
                                       
                                      Sambos: too un-PC for 2011....but I used to love grilled cheese and hot dogs from there as a child....now that I think about it, it wasn't fast food.
                                       
                                      And here in Watertown, none of the McDonald's have strawberry sundaes!! They looked at me like I had 2 heads when I ordered one a few years ago.  UGH

                                            Miami Don. As a fellow south floridian  (you're about a hundred miles south of me) I'm surprised mango flavored anything would surprise you. I'm expecting mango and guava flavored potato chips any day now in the stores :)


                                            I love mangos!  I just had a mango shake at a little roadside stand in Pinecrest, FL the other day that was pretty good.  I sampled a mango BBQ sauce the other day that was darn good.  I'm glad they don't have mango pies at Mcdonalds - I wouldn't be able to stop buying them if they were any good.

                                              .... Burger King: Ham and cheese with lett/tomato/mayo/american cheese slice on a long roll.
                                              I remember the Yumbo ham and cheese sandwich, but it came on the same round roll as the Whaler fish sandwich.

                                                Fried cherry pies from McDonalds

                                                The fried cherry pies were so good, and also the fried apple ones.

                                                a gas station round here had deep fried apple pies, but they changed the recipe last year now and the crust is too sugary and not crisp or flaky enough so I stopped getting them. The caramel  thingy from Taco Bell is a poor substitute as well.

                                                I heard about a place in NYC that sells double fried cherry pies, but no way I will be in NYC anytime soon.

                                                 
                                                Rally's has the fried apple pies like McD's used to be.  I just wish they had the cherry ones

                                                    I grew up in the 1950's & 1960's near Charleston WV eating at the original Shoneys' restaurants. 
                                                    I miss- Big Boy sandwiches, the best sauce.  AT one time they made a large 1 bun, 1 pattie Big Boy-really good.  Kingfish sandwich-the best fish sandwich ever.  Onion rings- crispy,just a little grease, thick slices of onion-onion was cooked, but still a little crisp.  Slim Jim sandwich.  Fish dinner,same fish as on the Kingfish sandwich, very good.  Hot Fudge Cake-I make it still.  Strawberry pie- no goopy ,too sweet, too red glaze as you find now in strawberry pies

                                                      I loved the Yumbo and always ordered it when I was in the area. That was the 'only' thing I ever ordered. The melted cheddar cheese oozing over hot slices of ham ... it was to die for!  And if I'm not mistaken, wasn't it served on an egg bun?
                                                       
                                                      I was so dismayed ... no make that upset ... to learn they had taken the Yumbo off the menu.     I haven't been to the Burger King in about 30 years (since they stopped serving the Yumbo). If they bring back the Yumbo I might consider coming back to Burger King.

                                                        Burger Kings chicken strips used to have a slightly spicey flavoring to them before they changed to the current nuggets, those were pretty good.
                                                        Also while not technically discontinued, I wish McDonalds would put the mcrib on the menu and leave it, instead of this limited time crap every few years.
