    Is there a Huddle House near any of you, or is it just a "Southern" thing?

    We used to have something called Burger Chef & Jeff:
    Plain hamburgers, in a plastic bag (to seal in the heat), and a 'fix'ns bar' where you would build the burger anyway you wanetd/liked. Mid 1970's.
    So Good.

    Also had Howard Johnson's.
    Friday, all you can eat Fried Clams....not shitty peanut sized clams, or a handful of clams ontop of a bunch of french fries....REAL large fried clams, all you can/could eat. up until the late 1980's.

    :(

    Burger Chef turned into (bought out by) Hardees which was then bought out by Carls Junior but without a name change on the east coast. Was our go to fast food as really young kids. Funny part is a never ever liked Hardees, when they bought out BC I went to McD's or Wendys - preferably Arbys for a couple beef and cheddars and a jamocha shake :D

    Cracker Barrel is the shit and I don't care what you damn yankees say about it. Waffle House is great too... at 2:30... A.M.... when drunk. Couple eggs over easy with some all the way hashbrowns, break the yolk and let the taters just suck it in... Yum!

    Hardees always had this odd smell.... like they used too much liquid smoke - it was inviting and disgusting all at the same time.

    Holy shit. I thought I was the only one who knew about HoJo’s Friday clams. Growing up in central Illinois that was the family outing every Friday night. Being that I grew up on a farm we showed up sometimes 30 minutes before close to get our fill of clams. So many memories of that place burned into my head.

    Moons over my Hammy with hash browns covered and smothered. Man I'd crush that right now.

    Maybe one of the best fast food items there is. Last time I lived anywhere near an Arby's they still had 5 for $5 though so its been a while.

    I remember showing up to a WH with some friends. We all ordered, the last guy said, "I'm not very hungry. I'll jus take a couple of pancakes"

    "Did you just order pancakes and the wafflehouse?"

    "Yeah"

    "You know, they're a waffle place...it's in the damn name"

    Not all of my friends are smart.

    Cracker Barrel used to be good. It was a reliable road food stop for me for a long time. Something changed in the last 5 or 6 years though. Breakfast is still usually ok but heir dinners aren’t as good. Last time we ate at one it was just terrible.
    Waffle House is what it is. It works. It doesn’t pretend to be anything special (except on Valentine’s Day when some locations put out table cloths and take reservations). Have never tried Huddle House. I feel like you are either on team WH or HH. Can’t cross streams.
