ST. LOUIS Hardee's is resurrecting an old signature item that never actually appeared on its menu. The 1,906-unit chain said it would feature Burger Chef Big Shef, a signature of the Burger Chef quick-service chain in the 1970s and 1980s, as a limited time offer at restaurants in Indianapolis; Terre Haute, Ind.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; South Bend, Ind.; and Dayton, Ohio.
Burger Chef, once the nation's third-largest burger chain, had a strong following in those areas.
