We still have an old fashioned Hardee's here in western PA...It's in a small town called Millvale (a suburb of Pittsburgh). It's been there for 30 years. The food is good and I like it above all other fast food places, especially the breakfast menu.
Here's the strange part...This place was a pioneer in drive through windows: They installed this contraption.....See, the drive through window was on the wronge side of the building, so the window was on the passenger side of the car, so they built this conveyor/chain driven thing, that held a tray of food...The employee placed the food filled tray on this conveyor, it travelled up the wall, over the car and down to the DRIVERS side of the car. (Picture the vacuum tube system of a bank drive thru, but on a larger and slower scale. Alas, this ultra cool food delivery system has been replaced by the conventional type......BUT, the saga continues....
There is an Arby's here (that used to be a Hardee's) that had the same drive thru system...It broke years ago, but Arby's was too cheap to get it fixed, so they use a wicker basket on a stick (like a church collection plate) to collect the money and pass the food through
the passenger window to the driver. It's like going to church and getting a roast beef at the same time.
But I digress....I like Hardee's.
