A famous name from the East, Burger Chef served burgers with gusto (and sported great architecture to boot) during the mid to late century. Alas, this 1956 outfit is no more.

Located in the New Jersey area is White Manna. This hamburger joint is a classic old eastern chain. But hurry in quickly for your greasy burger as there is only 2 left in New Jersey.
