There was one on Central Avenue in next to the Colonie Diner, at the entrance to the Price Chopper Plaza. It went from Hardees to Boston Market, and is now a pizza place.

Here's the recently closed Hardee's in Dillsburg, PA, about 20 min. north of Gettysburg on Rt. 15.  I used to stop here on the way to school, but I guess that won't happen anymore:

Ate at Hardee's twice when I visited Florida way back in the day. I used to like their curly fries. They seem to be a victim of harsh press and abomindable health violations which probably earns them the clunker prize of worst places to dine fast.

My grandparents used to Winter in Florida and their drive from upstate New York would always include a stopover or two at a Hardee's. They had a collection of coffee mugs.

One Winter I remember my family making the trip to visit the grandparents and we made certain we stopped at Hardee's. Their buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwhiches were excellent. Although, knowing what I know now of their ingrediants.. my stomach churns at the thought of digesting one.

Oh I hear ya buddy. I cringe everytime I see McDonalds or Burger King unveil a triple hamburger with cheese, mayo and bacon. How can you recover from such a saturated impact of grossness? My heart ached in fear when Hardee's unveiled that controversal one million calorie thing (don't remember what it was...) last year.

I drive from the Philadelphia area to Dover, DE about three times a year to visit a Hardee's.  LOVE their food.  Monster Thickburger, fries, and a Pibb.

There was a Hardee's near the intersection of PA 73 and PA 100 in the Gilbertsville, PA area.  Last time I checked (I go to Zern's Farmer's Market on occasion), it was a pizza joint.

I used to see quite a few when I lived up north and also in the Orlando area.  It was nice since they had more things than just burgers and I remember that they had good ham & cheese sandwiches and hot dogs.

An interesting bit of trivia - my daughter and I were standing in line at lunchtime in our local Hardees in Kissimmee, FL when we all looked out the window to see the space shuttle take off when we realized that it was the Challenger exploding.  It left a very spooky "Y" in the sky that stayed that way for the entire rest of the day!

Hardee's is still around, but yes, they have had lots of locations close down.  I think they have a difficult time coming up with an image that people associate them with.

I remember there was one on Chase ave. in Waterbury CT. I
believe it closed in the late 70's/early 80's. It was about the only fast food my parents would eat. Ever since then it's been a series of strip clubs.

Here in Rhode Island, Hardee's bought out most of the remaining Burger Chefs about 1983-1984. They all closed within a year. I don't believe there are any Hardee's at all in New England or at least close to me

The ones here in my area of Southwest Virginia, and Eastern Kentucky and Northeast Tennessee are still open. We have one in about every town. In Wise County there is five. About every town in Wise Co has a Hardee's.

Here's a former Hardee's it closed down about 1990, it moved about a mile or two down the road to a new shopping center and is still open there, when I get the time I'll take a picture of it, but for now here's a picture of the old Hardee's it was built about the same time all of them in Wise County Virginia was built and that was the late 1970's. This Hardee's was located on Main Street right in center of the city of Norton, Virginia. Built right beside of Long John's Silver, and Pizza Hut. They have all closed since and all are something else. It is now a  Yamato Japanesse Steak House.

I currently like the slammer burgers, but they are a bit costly for what you get.


The ones in Michigan were nearly gone way before that. I count over 100 former Hardee's in Michigan, most of which were gone before 1997. One, in Pinconning, is still vacant about 14 years after closing (and it opened in 1989 too; ouch!). Pics: http://www.angelfire.com/mi4/malldirectories/hardees/hardees.html

Hardee's must be one of the best fast food chains out there. The burgers actually taste real, unlike McDonalds that taste like they are soaked in swamp water. Wink

The ONLY one in my area closed in the 2000s and was remodeled into an Arby's. They were owned by Acme. There was one in Hershey PA that closed years ago as well... now a local bank.
