McDonald’s may wear the crown of fast food king, but for me Burger Chef will always be the top dog (closely followed by Burger Queen/Druthers).
While McDonald’s had the Hamburgler, Grimmace, and Ronald McDonald in their arsenal, I was always such a huge fan of Burger Chef & Jeff.
I remember as a kid going to a Burger Chef near Dayton, Ohio and getting what I thought was an actual autograph picture from Burger Chef and Jeff (like the one pictured above). I remember how exciting it was to meet them in person. Sadly I lost the autograph picture over the years.
I was pretty stoked when Hardees brought back the Super Chef sandwich a year or so for a limited time. It was a great tasting burger, but it didn’t have the same magic as it did in the 70’s.
