I've never heard of Arthur Treacher's or Yankee Doodle Dandy.  There are Jack-in-the-Box aplenty out here in California.

What about In-n-Out Burger?  or Fatburger?

My favorite school food of yore would have to be "Square Pizza!"  Yes, it was technically "rectangular."  No, it wasn't good pizza.  But I'll be damned if that stuff wasn't yummy.

That, and "mix your own Chili" Fridays back in elementary school.  Take your bowl of chili, add in your fries, ketchup, chocolate milk, dessert cakes, whatever else was on your tray, mash it up and eat it.  Yum-ass!

The salad bar in middle school was quite popular with me as well.  Was where I first heard the phrase, "Hey, you want some lettuce with your croutons?"

Yankee Doodle Dandy was a burger place, I don't know if they are still around.  Notably, they served hotdogs there.  They have been gone from this area for a long time, but I remember them making a tasty burger.

Jack in the Box seems to have retreated to California.  They used to be all over, but I remember a few salmonella outbreaks in the late 70s or early 80s...

I have never heard of any of this except for Jack in the Box.

Around here there are a few I can think about off the top of my head-

Shoneys
Something Caesars pizza.

I looked up Arthur Treachers, and the franchise still exists.  I just havent seen one in years, however.

All this talk of Fish and Chips is making me hungry.

Shoneys!  I remember many drunken mornings eating their breakfast buffet.  Food never tastes so good as when you are drunk and up late.

Got plenty of 'em in Texas.  Their horse-meat tacos are, as wbs coined them after I made him try one, "fast-food heroin."  They're also incredibly great when drunk and/or hungover.

They had a death by E. Coli back in the early/mid-90s, and took a huge hit, but they're still alive and kicking.  Doing quite well, too, if their ads are any indication.

Actually I take it back, I think I might have eaten at an Arthur Treacher's a couple of times.  There was some Fish n' Chips place near where I lived for a few months more than a decade ago.  I don't remember the name, but it was obviously a chain and it wasn't a Long John Silver's.  It was very likely an Arthur Treacher's.

I too am now hungry, and my brother flaked on lunch plans, so I've got to come up with something to eat now.

Yep... they're all over Tennessee as well.  I actually remember one in my hometown in the late 70s, but they disappeared from the area until about 5 years ago.

There are some Shoney's in Nashville, TN. There used to be a few in Chicago (my first job was as a busboy there), but they came and went in about a year.

For fast food pizza delivery, Roundtable is still pretty good.  I have one literally around the corner so you can imagine where I tend to order pizza from.  biggrin

I've been kind of pissed lately.  Im in Chicago, and there are literally NO good pizza places around where I live (especially pizza by the slice places).  WTF?  This is the pizza capital of the world!

Even one of the nicest spots in the city, North and Wells, has no good pizza by the slice places nearby.

Shakees - my god their pizza buffet was killer.  Every imaginable pizza, plus a deluxe salad bar, plus a taco bar, plus ice cream bar, oh and fried mush rooms.  All for about $6.

Burger Chef - All I can remember is that my dad took us there often.  It must have been cheaper than McDonalds.

York Steak House - You could get a steak dinner for about $7.  Ahh I remember taking many a cheap date there and then off to the Econo-Lodge  :lol:

Ponderosa Steakhouse!

Good memories.  There was one right around the corner from a videogame arcade and minigolf place when I was a kid (Haunted Trails, in Burbank, IL).  Go destroy $10 in video game tokens, play some minigolf, and eat at Ponderosa.

How about H. Salt Fish & Chips?  They used to be everywhere when I was a kid but they've all but disappeared.  I found one not too far away from my house a couple months ago and was overjoyed.

Oh yeah, good point.  It probably was an H. Salt.  Definitely seen those in California before.  Maybe even recently.
