An interesting question. I hope this link helps with some history and a quick answer:

Druther's - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cool thread....Burger Queen and Druther's bring back great memories.

We had both in Pikeville back in the early 80's...Druther's had a great fish sandwich.

Sunny, the few Druther's that were left were bought out by Dairy Queen. Last one I knew of in western Kentucky was in Princeton. My boys looked forward to going down there and getting one of their double cheese burgers!
Somebody mentioned breakfast at D.Q. The Druther's in Morganfield was bought out and is now a Long John Silver's, but kept the local Druther's management. And what did they bring with them? Druther's breakfast! Should see people look at you when you say you're going for breakfast at Long John Silvers! Somebody joked for a while wondering if they had fish eye gravy! lol Place is busy all morning. Beats the "golden arches"!

Every Druthers around got replaced with Dairy Queen, The one in Mt Washington Ky. kept the Royal Burger. I don't know if their still making these or not, I use to go there a lot. But times have changed, I did go to White Castle with my son yesterday though.
