It's Carl's Jr. in the West & Hardees in the East. You'll probably never see a Carl's in the East--- but never say never!
I'd like to have a Hardee's out here. Love their biscuits!

Pretty much the same menu, different name. I see that Hardee's had a similar "Philly" burger a few years ago. Last time I saw a Hardee's was in Delaware. Which seems to be the cutoff line.
 
One fast food place I miss is Roy Rogers. There are still a few around, and one in Trenton. Love the biscuits and fried chicken! They haven't tried to sell a roast beef/burger with Swiss and pass it off as a "Philly" yet........
 
 


Hardee's is a Southern Thang! Y'all up North just wouldn't understand and appreeciate the finer points of Southern Cuisine!

    Oleo certainly predates it. I remember oleomargerine (In Connecticut then oleo came in a bag with a color bead. The oleo was white and you had to break the bead and squeeze the bag to mix in the color.) when I was a little kid, and that was long before 1953 when Cheese Whiz first hit the market.

    When I was a kid in New Mexico, my dad told me that oleo was white because ranchers wanted people to know they weren't getting butter when they bought it. The coloring was there as a compromise. I don't remember a bag (I was thinking maybe a tub), but that makes sense. Butter came in short, fat ¼-lb. sticks that you could buy individually; my mom always kept one in the refrigerator, guarded jealously against childish depredations.

    The dairy industry lobbied hard to make sure that oleo was white. The industry opposed oleo because they feared it might cut into the use of butter.

      It might be helpful if you explained that to all the Hardee's customers at the Hardee's up here in the north.

        If they were serving up some genuine southern cuisine, then I would love to enjoy the "finer points" of said cuisine. (I think I'm getting your sarcasm, but just in case..) There are many southern style soul food places in this area that are fantastic, and will be better than any mass market fast food place like Hardee's. Looks like they are just another burger joint. But then again, I do like a BK Whopper on occassion. But I like McD's fries better... what to do, what to do..........

          That's odd. I wonder how my former next door neighbor owned the franchises for Hardee's in the upper Midwest from Minnesota to Montana. I guess that's a southern thang for Canadians.

              Just don't be so hard on BillyB, he'll complain and have your posts deleted after he's told you that you went off your meds.

                      You ain't making me cringe at all. It's like having sex with a condom. You can fool yourself into thinking "that's good", or you can have the "real deal". Those "in the know" will accept the only the "real deal" and accept no substitutes.

                        How about everyone stops bad-mouthing what others may like or not like about the varieties of these sandwiches, and stick to the topic without needling the others.  That goes for ALL of you.

                            Hi Mayor Al,
                             
                            I speak for myself, but what you see here is just a bunch of siblings smack talking with each other. No malice intended, although it may appear that way sometimes. I don't take any "zingers" personally, and I hope that the others don't take my jabs in a personal manner. It'a all in good fun, and , after all, how can one take things personally on an internet forum?
                             
                            I know that sometimes you must feel like you are babysitting a bunch of kids, but we're all adults here and just having a good time discussing things and putting each other down in a playful manner.
                             
                            Thanks,
                             
                            -Trent

                                      So... is it OK to ask if anyone but me thinks that Cheez Whiz Italia might be good on a Philly Cheese Steak? But... that stuff has gotten kinda hard to find. :~(

                                          Cheez Whiz "Italia?" - maybe it's got hair in it. (along with the garlic)

                                          What's the difference between regular vanilla ice cream and French vanilla ice cream?

                                                nope. just a  frozen slab of meat and nacho cheese from the ballpark. 
                                                I would hope you wouldn't waste truffle oil on that.

                                                  I agree 100% - that's the point. Truffle oil, balsamic reduction, bleu cheese, swiss cheese, et al. have no place on a Philly cheese steak.
                                                  It doesn't look like they are using steak-umms, but those slabs definitely look like they were frozen. But the meat doesn't look chopped/formed in the picture. It is still a disqualifier for a Philly, but it looks like it would make a good sandwich.

                                                    I submit it would be wasting a cheesesteak to add it to truffle oil.
