Carl’s Jr.’s New Bacon Thickburger Comes with a Half Pound of Beef

Mile-High-ThickBurger

Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s have added a new Mile High Bacon Thickburger to their menus. Apparently what makes a burger a “Thickburger” is that it comes with one-third or one-half pound of charbroiled Black Angus beef. We have to give Carl’s props for not throwing a gimmicky ingredient into the mix. It’s just appears to be a well-balanced bacon burger.

The Mile High Bacon Thickburger is stacked with red onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, American cheese and Applewood-smoked bacon, along with the aforementioned generous amount of beef patty. The burger is served with Carl’s signature fresh-baked buns.

The Thickburger will be available for a limited time only at participating Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations. While prices may vary depending on the location, the approximate price for the burger is around $5.59. Customers can also download a $1 off combo coupon here.

Now bring back the Bourbon Burger.

Carl’s Jr. Throws Entire Barbecue on a Burger, Dubs it Texas BBQ Thickburger

carls-texas-thickburger

More overloaded mega burger options from the fine (if slightly overzealous) folks from Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. Because their menus were just *so* boring before.

Less an homage to barbecue season as a way to eat an entire outdoor cookout with one hand, Carl’s new Texas BBQ Thickburger is messiness incarnate, featuring a sludge of spicy barbecue sauce-steeped sliced brisket, fried jalapeño and onion strips, American cheese, an Angus burger patty, and the brand’s special “Fresh Baked Buns.”

In case that’s not hefty enough for you, it’d still probably be best to skip the fries, considering each quarter, third, or half-pound burger has a sodium count ranging from 1890 to 2900 milligrams, well over the maximum recommended 2300. Or probably the amount consumed by an average Texan at lunchtime.

Hardee’s & Carl’s Jr. Launch Blue Cheese Steakhouse Burgers

For those of you who crave the idea of fast food burgers with a blue cheese topping, Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. have you covered, at least for a limited-time only. The burgers, whether in the form of Hardee’s Thickburger line or as Carl’s Jr.’s Six Dollar Burgers will all feature burgers topped with blue cheese, Swiss cheese, A.1. steak sauce, mayonnaise, crispy onion strings, lettuce and tomato on a sesame seed bun.

The new burger will be supported by a “Hamblor” campaign, an initiative that invites you to enter some mythical kingdom…a visual companion piece to help promote both the new burger and the new motion picture Immortals. Not sure how they’re bringing the two together, but the hamburger looks good…

Hardee’s: Introducing Turkey Thickburgers? [Rumor]

According to the credible folks over at BurgerBusiness, we’ve just gotten word that Hardee’s restaurants in the St. Louis area are testing a three-item Turkey Thickburger line. This may prove to be an amazing move for the brand, presenting a (stereotypically) leaner meat product as a substitute in their burger construction. Out of the gate, the burgers come in three varieties:

  • Turkey Thickburger highlighted by a ground-turkey patty, lettuce, onion and tomato ($3.49)
  • Mushroom Turkey Thickburger ($3.69)
  • Hawaiian Turkey Thickburger with a pineapple slice, teriyaki sauce and Swiss cheese($3.69)


Let us know if you’ve gotten a chance to taste this new line of Turkey Thickburgers and what you think! We’ve reached out to Hardee’s for comment, we’ll let you guys know if we get any additional information or imagery.

Angus War: Carl's Jr. to Offer Money-Back Guarantee

angus-war

As we reported a few posts back, CKE restaurants are none-too-pleased with McDonald’s Angus Third Pounder menu additions. In conjunction with their inevitable campaign to enforce their 6 Dollar Burgers (and Hardee’s Thickburgers), Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s plan to offer a “money back guarantee” to any customer who purchases their 6 Dollar Burger/Thickburger and don’t agree that their burger is better tasting than the McDonald’s Angus burgers. We will have more information about this offer when it becomes available to us. (Thx FFM)

Hardee's: Padma Lakshmi Commercial

As reported almost a month ago, the sexy Top Chef host has taken to Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s to promote their new Western Bacon Thickburger. For some reason, it’s a lot more arousing and “food-pornesque” watching Padma eat a burger than it was watching Paris Hilton do it. It could be that Padma eats sauce off of her leg, but who knows. Either way, the commercial is finally here, and we got the extended version after the jump as well. What you all think?

Hardee's: Bacon Western Thickburger (Limited Time)

For a limited time only, Hardee’s is bringing in the big guns with their Western Bacon Thickburger. Looks like bacon, western sauce, cheese, a thick burger, onion rings, and more sauce. Can’t have too much sauce right? (That’s what she said)
