Damn! They come early for you! I didn't get mine last year until after the games started - if I wanted to attend the first 2 games of the year I had to call the box office and arrange to pick up tickets because the deliver (DHL) sucks so bad.

Season ticket holders are the best, too - none of that crap all over them like ticketmaster has.

Did they send you any gifts or anything?

Nope! Just two pocket schedules, stub hub info and 10 food and soda vouchers for week day games from May - September

That's not bad. The Dodgers gave me this thing with the tickets that looked like a purse last year. They gave me some coupons that were mostly junk - free hamburger at a Carl's Jr. (Hardee's in the midwest) [$1.39 value...they only gave out a cheap hamburger w/o cheese] and gay stuff like that. Not a single Dodgers-related coupon.

A couple times I forgot to bring water and got thirsty and bought soda/water at the stadium...I would have loved a coupon! I bought 1 (World Famous?) Dodger Dog last year for $4.50 - it tasted like one of those kind you get at the grocery store where it's like a dozen for $1. The bun sucked, too.

They aren't very good (neither is Carl's Jr.). You aren't missing much.

A couple years ago Wendy's and Tim Hortons purchased most of the Hardee's stores in Michigan. And then converted them or shut them down. They closed most of ours in OH and WV.

In 1982, General Foods sold Burger Chef to the Canadian company Imasco (which also owned Hardee's)

Hardee's brought back the Big Shef burger on a limited-time basis in
2001 at select Midwestern locations, and has done so again as of April
2007. Now we don't have either. And I used to love Burger Shef growing up.

Speaking of Hardees, Carl Karcher (the founder of Carl's Jr.) died this year. He and his wife founded Carl's Jr. some 60+ years ago.

They say Carl Jrs is upscale from their Hardees division. Is it any better?

Who says that confused There's no way that's true! I've been to both and worked at one (Carl's Jr - for 3 years). The cash register menus are identical at the two places. The menu includes tons of fancy stuff that they don't offer at Carl's Jr.

When I ate at a Hardees in Iowa my burger was served in a plastic basket with a fork down the middle. Carl's Jr. wraps them in paper.

I like Burger King better myself! I love the commercial where the whopper and chicken sandwich guy go to Wendy's and ask for a whopper. When they hear they can get a baked potato; they say Baked Potato; What is this Russia!

Hardee's today

In 1997, the chain was acquired by CKE Restaurants, the parent company of the Carl's Jr. fast-food restaurant chain. (Imasco retained the few remaining Roy Rogers locations, though CKE is reported to do some supplying of them). Over time, some Hardee's restaurants were converted to serve higher-quality hamburgers and other products available from Carl's Jr., and also took on the Carl's Jr. star logo in the process.

The only thing I could possibly see that referring to is the hamburger itself. Carl's Jr. has this stupid Six Dollar Burger that's 100% Angus beef. Hardees calls it the Thickburger.

Some Hardees serve alcohol and stuff like that - no Carl's Jr. does.

We had the Thickburgers before Hardees closed. I like Burger King Whoppers, Wendys burgers, but McD fries best.

Burger King fries aren't that good! Mcdonalds, Wendy's and Rally's fries are better than BK

Very true GS! And the coating on BK fries make them the highest in calories of any fast food place! They used to have good ones.

I'm like GoGetEm - Whopper, Wendy's and McD Fries but we have a lot of Jack In the Box around here and I'd put them in 3rd place.

Ok now I've got one for you - We're getting the Butter Burger - Anyone got any thing on this one? What's the Beef? Smile Culver's® Restaurant and Frozen Custard.

Hi phil50, hope to see you during our new LIVE game day action thread today (3/1/08 at 1:00 pm eastern time)

Culver's says it is

Quote :





The ButterBurger®
is made just the way you like it. You can order them plain, with any
combination of condiments you like such as pickles, ketchup, mustard,
onions, tomatoes and lettuce.

A Butterburger® is made from fresh, never frozen, domestic raised steers.



also it says

Quote :


A ButterBurger is a burger made from fresh, never frozen
100% U.S. beef topped with a lightly buttered, toasted bun

Sounds good. There are several in MI, including one in Westland and Roseville. Their link is http://www.culvers.com/Welcome.aspx

No hamburger joint beats In-N-Out burger. Nothing is ever frozen. It's all made from fresh ground beef and the fries are made from potatoes right there on the premesis. Unfortunately the chain is only on the west coast.
