The restaurant that I miss the most isn't a fast-food chain...but it was a national chain...

Beefsteak Charlie's

Anybody remember them?

GREAT steaks, GREAT salad bar, GREAT sangria!

I'm not trying to take-over this thread, but I really, Really, REALLY miss Roy Rogers.

Not Roy himself...his fast-food joints.

Roy's Double-R-Burger was by far-and-away, simply the very finest burger I have ever, ever had anywhere.
AND I'm including those new "7 Dollar Burgers" by comparison.
ALSO, Roy's Fried Chicken Recipe was the very best. A Thousand Leagues better than "KFC's"!

Recently, I discovered Roy Rogers restaurants along the Pennsylvania Turnpike...Bonita & I stopped to try them out with great interest, only to be sorely disappointed.

There was one in the Paramus Park Mall as of June last year, but it is now history. There may still be one on Bloomfield Ave in bloomfield, but I'll have to verify it. And there may still be one in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.

Other than the one you mentioned Eric, it is sad to see that AT has virtually faded from existence.

After all, how much more brilliant can you get than putting a batter-dipped deep-fried hot dog on a stick?

BEEFSTEAK CHARLIE'S YES!

Remember the TV commercials? The one with the husband and wife practically having orgasms over the all-you-can-eat shrimp, then the waiter shows up with their steaks. They look disappointed at the waiter and say, "Steaks?"

We went to a Roy Rogers in Maryland (Off of 95 I think) just last October.

WHAT is a CORNDOG?

I think it's like corn meal shaped like a hot dog on a stick that has been batter dipped and deep fried.

They had a similar one with a hot dog called the Crunch Pop.

More a case of them having forgotten about the steaks and now after all the shrimp they have no appetite for them.

Remember their song, "You're gonna' get spoiled, we will treat you right!" which SNL lampooned with their sketch about "Pre-Chewed Charlie's"?

I remember one in Madison Square Garden we ate at before a Rangers game a couple times.

...And are the Fish 'n' chips good Chris?

Sad to say that here in England it's so hard to find a good fish 'n' chip shop, they are mostly run by chinese and Indians with very variable results (mostly bad to barely edible), Harry Ramsdens is the most famous here in the UK but I think they're vastly overrated, the best here in my home city is an Italian run buisness from a shop that's older than America, it's fantastic and if you ever make it here the treat is on me! (I'll definitely take Mark H & Laura when they finally get heresmile)

p.s. I'm not slating our enterprising Chinese and Indian community...just that they don't know how to make GOOD fish 'n' chips!

A corn dog is a hot dog on a stick, covered in batter and deep fried -- dip it into some mustard or ketchup and chomp away.

I don't eat much fast food anymore, but I love Taco Hell, Wendy's, and Jack in the Box.

"...And are the Fish 'n' chips good Chris?"

Well Timmer, it's been two years since I last visited the place (Danville isn't a regular stop for me)...but they certainly were delicious back then!
And yes...a corn dog is a batter dipped frankfurter, deep fried and stuck on a stick like a lollipop.
If my memory serves me, Beefsteak Charlie's tagline was "We'll feed ya'like there's no tomorrow!"

I don't recall that tagline for Beefsteak Charlie's. I do remember in their later days a bunch of ads with Beefsteak Charlie's nerdy nephew Beefsteak Chuck ("He went to restaurant school!")
