Burger Chef - Wed, 08/29/12 10:50 AM
When I was a kids in the 60's I loved to go to Burger Chef on HWY98 in Fort Walton Beach.  The Big Chef sandwich had a great sauce.

Hardee's took over Burger Chef.  Carl's Jr. took over Hardee's.  But some Hardee's that used to be Burger Chef still retain some Burger Chef items on the menu.

The Big Chef was always my favorite.   I recall gagging over my first Big Mac - similar, but a much different item.   About every 5-7 years since, I've tried a Big Mac (primarily when enticed with a coupon) to see if it's really as bad as I recall.   It always is.   At one time, they ran an ad campaign something along the idea of one keeps coming back for a Big Mac.  For me, it's more that a big Mac keeps coming back on me (for many hours). 
 
Closest I've found is the Steak & Shake steak burger with their Frisco sauce.

Scramble, there are one or several great threads in the archives here on Roadfood about Burger Chef. There is still a franchisee of Burger Chef who rolls his own and puts out pretty much the old menu items.
