• Customer: "Do you use 100% fresh Atlantic cod in your fish sandwiches?

    Cashier: "Well, the filets are flash frozen, square, and cost 59 cents. You tell me."

    Customer: "So, is it fresh?

    Cashier: "Yes, the damned thing is fresh!"

    So when you got a fish sandwich, it didn't come wrapped like all the other stuff? Seems like a risky deal.

    What's risky is holding that flimsy paper tray with one hand...especially with those thick shakes!

    I love the sign in the background. Do you know if there are any more Burger Chefs?

    Sadly, the Burger Chef chain is gone but I have heard of a few operators who still use the name. The majority of the Burger Chefs here in the southeast were bought by and converted to Hardee's.

    We had one in my hometown until the late '70s.

    The evil Hardees (I'm joking here) also bought out Dee's fast food in Salt Lake City, and took down all the wonderful neon clown signs.

    How did they ever find enough creepy, disembodied hands to serve at all their restaurants?

    Back then they would not make flimsy carton trays. Things were made with quality not cheapened down for profits like todays standards. Soda was sold in bottles not flimsy plastic bottles like today.

    As a kid, we used to all go out and collect empty 5 cent return bottle to raise money for BurgerChef. Only 25 cents bought a Funburger with a great toy inside. Hmmmm, "Fun" burger or "Happy" meal. I'm not sure which idea came first--BurgerChef's or McDonald's, but somebody was copying somebody's idea! Its the same thing--a burger and a toy! But, BurgerChef had more class, lol!

    I worked at a Burger Chef in the mid-1970s. The fish sandwich was known as the Skipper's Treat. There was one regular, a young man, who could never prounounce it. He'd say something like kipper's snick.
