My first experience with a Hardee's was at college. They were open all night and I took advantage of that. I coudn't get enough of the big deluxe(or the big beef either). After college, I drove 40 mins. at 2 a.m. to satisfy my craving. Yes, I had a couple of beers that night.

Hardee's did not "become Carl's Jr." Hardee's was purchased by the owners of Carl's Jr. so that they could incoporate certain items from Hardee's menu, like the $6 Burger. Hardee's was well-known in the South and changing the restaurants over to Carl's Jr might cause them to lose business. Carl's Jr streamlined the way Hardee's was doing business and caused those restaurants to do much better business. :)

I had a high school history teacher who claimed to be the first Hardees employee to make a Big Deluxe. True story.

I worked at a Hardees in the early '70s and made my share of Deluxes. They were made with mayonnaise, unlike the Huskee Junior, which was two "charco-broiled" beef patties with a thick slice of gooey melted cheese in the middle, "special sauce" (thousand island dressing) and a handful of shredded lettuce, all on a seeded bun.

Yes, Justin, I loved the Frisco Burger. The thing they have now just isn't the same at all.

I miss the old Big Deluxe...it was clean, just lettuce, mayo, onions and pickles (at least I think that's all it had on it) and wasn't so goopy and over the top like the Hardee's burgers now.

Hardees needs to bring the Big Deluxe back. It was better than any burger by Mcdonalds or BurgerKing.

The husky deluxe was the best fast food burger EVER...it came with lettuce tomato and mayo and was wrapped in clear plastic...it was replaced by the big deluxe which came in a yellow carton...the big twin had the thousand island-like sauce...I really wish they would bring these sandwiches back and have them taste like they actually did back then.

I just ate a Big Deluxe. Theyre over here at the Hardees in the Middle east. They serve everything from the 80s and 90s. The only problem is what do they cll that burger now because i cant find it on the nutrion facts

We have a very similar burger to the husky junior here at Carl's Jr in California. It's called the "Big Carl" and it really is good. It reminds me of the old Hardees back in the day.

Sorry to tell you Alaylanna, I ate the Big Deluxe when I went to Kuwait, Unfortunately its not the same as it use to be when I was a kid. In the middle East they serve a Super star or a Famous star on a different bun and call it a big Deluxe. I know they also have those there, but not like the old big deluxe with that special sauce
