  1. I loved their “Big Chef” sandwiches. I can still remember the day I found out “Burger Chef” went belly up. One of my favouite meals was to go to a local place called “The Hot Dog Shoppe” and get their cheddar-chilli fries and then run to Burger King and get a couple “Big Chefs” I go to “Burger King” and the place was boarded up… A day which will live in infamy.

    • Thanks for sharing your memories of Burger Chef. It had to be a sad day to see your Burger Chef boarded up. General Foods must have done something to cause the company to be sold to Hardees and eventually go out of business. Wish we had 45 cent combos today.

  2. Do you remember “Winky’s?” Not as good as Burger King as I recall.. the local one was more famous for their cockroaches than their burgers..

  3. Winky’s only stayed in business from 1962 to 1982. Their slogan was “Winky’s makes you happy to be hungry”. Their slogan should have been “Winky’s makes you happy if they forget to include cockroaches with your burger”.
