Burger Chef

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.

    Update: this place - Schroeder's Drive-In, in Danville, Ohio, has closed as of last October.  I believe this was the very last remnant, after the last actual Burger Chef closed in '96.  I had been hoping to go someday.

    I believe that's actually Danville, Illinois.
    Dang.  I've driven past Danville on I-74 many times but never knew about Schroeder's.

    I thought there was a still-open Burger Chef near Chattanooga?

    That is apparently "The Chef" in Cleveland TN and it does appear to still be in business, although they close at the baffling hour of 6 pm.

    When my younger sister and I were in college, we would sometimes eat lunch at Burger Chef. The Big Chef was always my favorite, too. This was at a time when there weren't a lot of fast food places all over the place. A simpler, better time.
