Double R Bar Burger

I was in Frederick yesterday and saw a Roy Rogers. Thought Double R Bar Burger. We don't have Roy's around here anymore. It was fantastic, or maybe it was just memories of old that made it taste that way. Every Friday on my way up to Frostburg to visit my girlfriend (now wife) I would stop at Roy's and have a Double R Bar burger.....that was twenty plus years ago. For a fastfood burger, it's great. Or is it just the memories that make it taste good? Does anyone else miss this burger?

  1. FYI, there are several Roy Rogers Restaurants in the Gaithersburg/Germantown area and the Double R also was my favorite though the RR fried chicken was a close 2d.

      I know about the two in Frederick, and thanks for the heads up on those in Montgomery county. I am in Anne Arundel, and we don't have any. I just don't get out that way very much anymore. And you are right, their chicken was always great, although I am a huge fan of Royal Farm chicken, for fast food chicken.

        If I'm not mistaken, their current "headquarters" are in Frederick. Thurmont has at least two, I think.

          I'm in AA as well. I think there is one at BWI. I've considered it, but never quite been that desperate. I assume it's a food court variety establishment.

      2. when I make a burger at home, I always put ham on it I loved them so much!

          I don't know why I've never done that Hon. Next time I make burgers I will, along with some gooey american cheese.... The comedian Jim Gaffigan does a bit about ham hamburgers....little does he know how good they are!

        2. Dunno how far you will go for Roy's famous Horsey Sauce, but if you go to AND you figure out how to use the locator on that awful Flash site, you'll find a good number of them in Maryland and close-in Virginia.

            They used to have one on the campus of UMCP and they have one in Solomons Island

              I grew up in Gaithersburg and LOVE Roy Rogers....always the Bacon Cheeseburger with Horsey Sauce on the Burger and dipping the fries into....I don't live near one now :(

            2. If you ever find yourself travelling through Manassas, we have two Roys-one just opened a couple months ago.

              1. This is my favorite fast food item EVER! Can't get it drive thru because I have to dress it just right - horseradish sauce, BBQ sauce and extra pickles. I tease an old school friend who moved away each time I have one because he loves them too. My nephew swears their chicken is the best but I just can't go in and not do the Double R.
