I LOLed at that...and my 2nd favorite line was from Joan's mom..
"The Jews close everything on Saturday"
There was a Burger Chef in the Morristown general area in 1972.
Also, I think you meant Wesson's, not Wetsons. We never went there because by the name we got the impression that the burgers were fried in Wesson oil.
We had Burger Chef in my hometown in NC. I don't remember eating there until after Hardee's took over, but I probably did.
Typical man. The girlfriend is way cutie and nicer in every way than Trudy, but Pete still wants them both to be his.
Is it my imagination, or do they never make Don wear the ugly clothes?
As a kid I had trouble remembering which was the good burger place--Burger Chef or Burger King? Burger Chef was definitely known to be the bad one around here. I didn't even know that Hardee's was it. I guess that's why they need Don.
I lived in Brooklyn in 1969, I knew nothing of what was in Jersey. And yes, Wessons.
There were some smaller, more local burger joints, Big Daddys (Nathans brother ran that), Roll n Roaster and a couple of others.
That's kind of the theme of the show. The world is changing, and fashions are trending toward what we all now know was the hideous 70s era, but Don is still stuck in 1960, and while his attitudes might be becoming outdated, his clothes will remain classics.
Don should have been arrested for "felony sport coat" for what he wore to Megan's party.
Burger Chef originated in Indianapolis, so I'm not surprised that many East Coasters were only vaguely aware of it. I also remember it being a lesser version of McDs and BK. So did many other people, apparently.
This was my favorite episode of this season. Don got Peggy to realize and be confident in her own talents much like he did when he first recognized them. Not only is Don the Creative Genius on his way back (not all the way there, yet) but Don the Mentor is re-emerging as well.
Not sure what I think about Bob. His response to Joan's rejection was both harsh and desperate. I think he must not really understand her if he thought she would go for it.
It is just like Pete to feel more comfortable being miserable in NY than content in LA. Just can't himself, I suppose.
I'm really looking forward to when Lou is summarily dismissed/looked past as the looming battles commence.
I remember Burger Chef but never ate in one. I probably just remember commercials. Now, Gino's on the other hand. I loved me some Gino's Giant. I liked the Gino's Giant more than I liked the Big Mac.
70s fashion may have been hideous but they had mini skirts and hot pants back then. If only somebody had invented yoga pants 40 years ago.
The Burger Chef scenes were shot in an actual former Burger Chef, on old Route 66 in Rialto, California.
(Photo is a Google street view from a couple years ago -- it's apparently closed today.)
This is the closest we've seen i think:
this made me think of the classic Southwest Airlines commercials. We studied SW in one of my college classes and were shown some of their commercials. i wish i could find the one i'm thinking of on youtube, but all i can find are the ones below. they were just overtly sexual. the one i can't find had a hostess laying back on the wing very seductively, and i can't remember wtf she said because.. well.. it was a long time ago that i saw it.
edit: ok for some reason i can't get the youtube links to work right... so here's the URLs
Right, that hideous plaid thing.

Exactly. The irony was thick there.
That was awesome. I loved the awkward reactions of his audience.
So did Pete.
Was it plan A for her to fly back alone?
I (born 77) have never seen a Burger Chef but my mom used to always refer to Burger King as Burger Chef and it drove me crazy. She grew up in Philly, dunno if that's where she got it from.
Because he's not over Trudy, and also because Trudy is over him.
did my eyes deceive me or did the menu boards in the restaurant say "Burger Shef"?
Nope. The signature burger of Burger Chef was the "Burger Shef".
Thank you. I recognized the restaurant layout as being authentic and wondered if they had constructed a set or found an old Burger Chef location.
