Has anyone noticed how many Hardee's restaurants have gone out of business over the past 5 years?  They used to be EVERYWHERE and now you find so many "ghost" buildings along the highways and hometowns across the country.  What did you like best about Hardee's?  and least?
I currently like the slammer burgers, but they are a bit costly for what you get.

The Hardee's down south (Carolina's) are real nice, at least the ones we ate at during a road trip fo Florida. They are all updated, clean, and food that beats McBurgerKing hands down.

The few remaining ones in PA, which we passed on a school trip to Gettysburg, were still using the 80's-early 90's color scheme and logo(before the Carls. Jr Buyout). I saw many closed ones too.

We have about 10 Hardee's in Michigan, we used to have over 100. One that I frequented was only open for 6 years! (Closed 1995, still empty!) One that's still open actually went Burger Chef -> Hardee's -> Burger King -> Hardee's!

The ones around here are barely operating! They were really popular when i was little, but now they are slowly fading away. Why? Because Wendy's, Taco Bell, Mcdonalds, and Subway. I think more & more Burger King will head this way.

Burger King is a chain that is hurting as well.  We have lost 3 of them here in my hometown over the past few years.  We have also lost 4 or 5 Hardee's locations.  Arby's took their locations and built new stores.

I think places like: Wendy's, Taco Bell, and Mcdonalds are hurting restuarants like Hardees and Burger King. Although i think Burger King is in a much better position than Hardees.

Our Hardee's was only open 10 years. The building is still empty as well as 2 others nearby. I remember it was kind of clean, but not spotless. The fried chicken was good and the burgers.

Yeah, I've noticed that over the past 10 years or so, you don't see Hardee's as much. I saw it all the time when I was younger. It is true, I've noticed in the highway side restaurant clusters, Hardee's isn't there anymore. Though the ones near me seem to be doing pretty well for themselves. I enjoy their food, it blows away Mc'Donalds or Wendy's (IMO). I don't understand what happened. :-?

I remember going to a Hardee's in Clifton Forge, VA heading back on our Washington DC trip.  The place was alright.  One of mine classmates bought a California rasin and he did some sick stuff with it.  Good times. good times.:bigsmile:

Are there any Hardee's restaurant left in the Huntington area?  There's one in Cricleville, OH and another in Greenup, KY.

Remember those stupid Hardee's commercials from a few years back.  My least favorite was the one where the guy talked about his car being broken down and all he wanted was some fries and only Hardee's was around and he wondered how they could screw up french fries.  How un-flattering is that?

Another stupid Hardee's slogan was the: "Now introducing longer lines at Hardee's".  It was meant to make you think your food was being prepared to order, but most people took it as a slow long wait for fast food.  Bad idea alltogether. :yup:

There were 3 Hardee's restaurants in Albany:

Colonie: Central Avenue(Route 5): Became Boston Market - Now a pizza place.

Latham: Troy Schenectady Road(Route 7): Now King Buffet

Clifton Park: Route 146: Not sure of its status. May be another restaurant.

Rt. 60: Still operating, but is still struggling.

Downtown: Doing well. They do like classic car shows there once a month, so i think that helps. It's a nice location and is clean too.

The Clifton Park one was converted into a bank branch (at the time Troy Savings, now owned by First Niagara - they actually moved from a location across Rt. 9).  I think it still is a bank, but haven't been that way recently so I can't be sure.

Here is one of the few remaining Hardee's in Evansville.  This was the last one to be opened.  Around 1992 or so.

A former Hardees on Route 7 that is now a Chinese buffet.  This one closed quite a few years ago (10 or so) and was one of only a couple ever in this area (Clifton Park had one, there was also one in Cobleskill, don't know of others in the Albany area).
