You’ve seen the commercial for the new Grilled Cheese bacon burger being the first grilled cheese sandwich you can feel comfortable buying in front of others without being looked at as a child but is the Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger from Carl’s Jr. as good as it looks? Great question.
I had the Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger combo for lunch yesterday and was initially excited. The ad makes the burger look appealing and meaty (both Carl’s Jr. signature traits). It comes in 3 main sizes Single, Double or Six Dollar Burger (half pound) and the price for the combo is a respectable $4.99, $5.99 or $6.99. Even the Carl’s Jr. employee said it’s been a top seller as of late.
The Grilled Cheese Bacon burger was served quickly and looked delicious. The bread on this burger is amazingly wonderful with the right combination of chewiness, softness and buttery goodness. The burger looked delicious and the cheese and baking were oozing out (a very good thing). It’s a good looking sandwich but is it really a Grilled Cheese Bacon BURGER? That is the question.
Halfway through this burger I realized that if I was eating it at 7am it would have been amazing. I was eating it for lunch and bought it because of the word burger. The Review: The Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger is a delicious breakfast sandwich but NOT an amazing burger.
As a burger it’s a 6 out of 10.
