Carl's Jr. Steakhouse Six Dollar Burger

cjsteakhouseburger.jpgI was excited to try the new Steakhouse Burger at Carl's Jr., seeing as how it's apparently made by 'the god of hamburgers.' These new Steakhouse Burgers are topped with blue cheese, Swiss cheese, onion strings, and A.1. steak sauce. Blue cheese isn't exactly favored by everyone, but personally I love it and in this instance it balanced well with the sweetness from the steak sauce. This is actually the first time I've ever seen blue cheese on a fast food burger, and I was thoroughly impressed. The onion strings were definitely the least noticeable thing; and towards the end of the burger I found a little pile of onions which probably should've been spread out more evenly. Also the onion strings were not very crispy and I was disappointed at what could've been another standout attribute. Lastly, the patty itself was flavorful and very meaty- albeit a little dry. Thankfully, the creaminess of the two cheeses came into play here. Although it may not quite live up to divine standards, Carl's Jr. proves once again that it can make some of the best, if not the best fast food burgers. The addition of blue cheese alone makes this a resounding success in my book.

While the Bleu, and Swiss cheeses were a really tasty diversion, on this new burger from Carl's jr./Hardee's...the bun fell apart quickly. The onions were not crunchy, but soggy and gooey. The A-1 steak sauce overpowered everything on the burger, except the cheese combination, which was sad. This burger held so much promise...if prepared right, this taste combinations should have been a hit for me, but, at the end of the munching, all I was left with, was
a taste-mismatched, soggy mess. Sorry Carl's/Hardee's. Maybe your next creation will be better.
