West Jasckson Avenue
I found this site through "Test Pattern" on msnbc.com...how wonderful! We had a Burger Chef on West Jackson Avenue (next to Pizza Hut, by the old mall/Malco entrance, just past Country Club Road intersection across from the Fraternity Row campus entrance) in Oxford, Mississippi when I was real little; I was in Happy House Daycare and Kindergarten (before the state made K education mandatory) and we would get Burger Chef as a special lunch. Back then Oxford was so small that there was Burger Chef and Sonic...and that was about it. Getting our first McDonalds was a BIG deal! (of course, now there's two McDonalds, an Applebees, a Home Depot...we're becoming victims of suburban homogenization.) The Burger Chef closed by the time I was six or seven...it became a Mr. Gatti's Pizza, then the recently-closed "Buffalo Cafe" (can't recall whether it was the same building or not, but DEFINITELY the same site!) I miss the taste of a Burger Chef burger to this day, but Burger King comes kind of close.
