Carl's Jr swings for the fences

http://foodbeast.com/content/2010/07...-cheeseburger/



Carl’s Jr. simply couldn’t sit still too long while KFC hopped into the sandwich game with their Double Down from days ago. It looks like they’re trying to make some waves with this new “Footlong Cheeseburger” they’re testing out at one of my local Santa Ana, CA, locations. The sandwich comes along with some chuckles, to say the least. It sells for $4 (the plain cheeseburger), and the deluxe is set at $4.50 (comes with all the fixings, lettuce, tomatoes, onions). The combo meals are set at $6.50 for the cheeseburger version and $7.00 for the deluxe footlong.

The 12-inch burger is wrapped like a sandwich, and sticks out of most of the to-go bags offered up at the location, so it was definitely an interesting sight. I’m not sure how well the burger will fair, it’s basically just a few patties and ingredients mimicking a sub sandwich, which may end up not helping its overall appeal. The dough on the bread seems a little off, but the execution of the entire sandwich still remains interesting and I’m intrigued to say the least. As for the patty, it actually consists of smaller individual patties, instead of one larger piece (which may have earned it some more “craziness points“). Maybe they will make some modifications if they decide to roll this burger out nationally. Until then, what do you guys think of the pictures, or if you’ve tried it yourself, please share your thoughts with us!

Actually, I'm kind of overselling it.

Carls Jr could really have made more of an effort.

I think it looks like garbage, but in today's bigger and better age I love the concept. They need to trick that shit out with some different cheese choices and bacon. Mu'****in' BACON! It is the candy bar of meats. Hell, how about an option to top it with eggs? If you're going to do it, kill people. All the way.

Toss in mushrooms as another option, and I'm with you all the way.

That sounds like the perfect breakfast burger, but, instead of hamburger patties, how about sausage patties... --- ... --- ... ---

Hmmm... you'd think someone who wanted more cheeseburger would just order more than one.

That's what I was thinking.

It will be interesting to see how it does - just looks like a silly half ass gimmick to me.

Well, so was the double down by KFC. At $5 a pop, it's a ripoff of some magnitude.

Soon to be followed, no doubt, by the 18 inch Long Dong Whopper and the 40 inch McMuthaburger from hell's own kitchen.

Hardees was my first introduction to Carl's Jr. I had no idea when I walked into Carl's for the first time it was the same place. I loved Hardee's when I lived in NC so I was happy to find Carl's.

I don't eat there that often. It's about 20 miles from me and I don't get up that way more than once every month or three. When I am up there though, I usually make a trip to Carl's Jr.

I'm pretty sure I paid almost $7 for that damn thing.

So if Hardee's and Carl's Jr are the same place, does that mean Hardee's will also have this?
