How could there not be a listing for this wonderful little chain. I believe they located were mostly in the Northeast and were all over the place. My town had a Burger Chef long before McDonalds or even Burger King. Their Burgers came in little plastic pouches and the fries were even better than McDonalds.  Bought out by Hardee's in the early 80's all the stores were either converted or shut down, eventually Hardee's left the area. Most if not all the remaining restaurants were converted into various businesses or bulldozed. As the buildings have been so modified one would never know they were Burger Chefs. This is one place I truly miss. :roll:

Great pics of the old Burger Chefs.  Unfortunately, the two we had in Evansville were both completely torn down and we have nothing to remember them by. :no:

One was torn down to make room for the Lloyd Expressway and the other was torn down and a medical building is in its place.

The one on Newport Avenue in Rumford is now part of a car lot, the building was kept, remodeled and serves as an office, the one in North Attleboro is now a jewelry store and the one in Warwick near the former Ann & Hope is a Rocky Point chowder shack.

Hardees took over most of them here and then a year later closed them all

This one in Newport News, Virginia is now a frozen custard stand. Instead of doing something strange with the original sign they just put up a new one.

Does anyone know of any Former Burger Chef sites in Connecticut? I've seen what could of been one in Middletown on 66. It was an Enterprise car rental, but the building was very much like Burger Chef's, if I'm ever up that way again I'll have to get pictures.
