We Taste 9 Fast Food Vanilla Milkshakes (and Risk Permanent Brain Freeze)

Todd Brock 71 comments

Which fast food outlets have vanilla milkshakes that actually go beyond "boring, plain, and unexciting?" We picked nine nationwide chains, put our waistlines on the line, and braved the worst case of brain freeze in recorded history to find out. Here are our favorites. More

We Try the Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger (and New Buns!) from Hardee's and Carl's Jr.

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 10 comments

Thinly-sliced steak? Check. White cheese? Check. Onions and green peppers? Check—with even a slight bit of blackened blistering if you look closely. But I'm convinced that a huge part of my positive Philly experience came from the new bun. More

We Try the New Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger from Hardee's & Carl's Jr.

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 15 comments

This is like doing a shot of straight wing sauce and then chasing it with an otherwise-nondescript-but-still-too-blue-cheesy fast-food burger. More

Reality Check: We Try the New Bacon-Loaded 'Superman' Burger from Hardee's & Carl's Jr.

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 9 comments

I'm not sure six strips of bacon versus two really warrants a Superman comparison, but there's nothing not to like here. Except for the silly name they gave to the invented piece of porcine architecture that graces this movie tie-in burger. More

Reality Check: New Jim Beam Bourbon Thickburger from Hardee's and Carl's Jr.

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 11 comments

The new Jim Beam Bourbon Thickburger is a clever twist, sure to excite a certain demographic of young male fast food consumers who will be intrigued simply by the alcohol tie-in. Of course, a little T&A also plays well with that crowd, and Hardee's/Carl's Jr. never disappoints. But how does the real thing stack up to the booze-soaked, high-production-value fantasy? More

The Jalapeño Turkey Burger is one of the worst burgers I've attempted to eat in recent memory. More

Reality Check: Memphis BBQ Thickburger from Hardee's and Carl's Jr.

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 12 comments

The Memphis BBQ Thickburger's overall sensation: generic meat that tastes like barbecue sauce, with nondescript shredded meat that tastes like barbecue sauce, with some melted cheese that tastes like barbecue sauce, and some vaguely crunchy things that taste like barbecue sauce...and bread. More

Fast Food Onion Ring Roundup: Burger King vs. Hardee's vs. Jack in the Box vs. Sonic

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 59 comments

If you want a pouch of potato sticks, you can visit pretty much any fast food establishment on the planet. But if it's lunchtime and you want to put a ring on it, you've got to plot out your run a bit more carefully. The ring's the thing that decides many a burger destination. More

Reality Check: Carl's Jr./Hardee's Southwest Patty Melt

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 10 comments

While I didn't find myself scrambling to unsnap my uncomfortably-stifling garters or mopping at my perspiration-misted cleavage à la Miss Upton, the Southwest Patty Melt's jalapeños do bring a mild, mellow heat. More

Video: Kate Upton's Southwest Patty Melt Commercial for Carl's Jr. and Hardees

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 4 comments

In grand Carl's Jr./Hardee's tradition of making commercials featuring attractive women eating burgers in exaggeratedly sensual ways—Paris Hilton, Padma Lakshmi, Audrina Patridge, and Miss Turkey—model Kate Upton stars in this commercial for their latest burger, the Southwest Patty Melt topped with jalapeño slices, grilled onions, pepper Jack cheese, and spice Santa Fe sauce on grilled sourdough bread.

Carl's Jr. and Hardee's New Steakhouse Burger: 'Tastes Like It's Made by the God of Hamburgers'

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 5 comments

Finally, the Hamburger God has revealed himself. His name is Hamblor and he has the power to shoot onion strings out of his hands and shatter a blue cheese-based bust of himself by using his mighty voice. Like any good god, he has nubile, burger-loving goddesses by his side and rides on a monstrously huge St. Bernard bearing a cask of A.1. sauce around his neck. You can join his kingdom on September 28 for the chance to rise to immortality win free burgers and other prizes from Carl's Jr. and Hardee's. More

Reality Check: Hardee's Turkey Burgers

A Hamburger Today John M. Edwards 18 comments

Hardee's pitches their turkey burgers as "just as indulgent as our other burgers, but all under 500 calories"; each sandwich, they claim, "is prepared with a thick, juicy turkey patty." Don't believe a word of it. More

Chain Reaction: Peach Milkshake at Hardee's

Drinks Carey Jones Post a comment

Though peach season is still a ways out, Hardee's is now advertising a "Hand-Scooped" Peach Milkshake as a seasonal offering. Reasonably creamy, though not exactly thick, it's got a pronounced peach flavor that recalls canned peaches—nowhere near as good as fresh peaches, of course, but not as bad as peach syrup. More

Are Carl's Jr. and Hardee's the Same?

Yeah, that's not confusing. Since this question keeps popping up in the chain burger polls, I figured I would address it in a separate post (and thus give me something to refer to every time someone asked this question): Are... More
