Two thumbs up for a new Hardee's burger!!
I've never been much on fast food. Largely because those types of places didn't exist when I was growing up. The best (and very few) we had here were a Dairy Queen here and there and an occasional A&W Root Beer stand as we made our annual trek north for summer vacation. As a result, I never got in the habit of eating at places like McDonald's, Burger King, etc.
When Glenn and I do stop for some quick eats, we usually stop at Hardee's. We've discovered that they are almost always clean, have friendly and efficient staff and the food can almost always be counted on to be fresh and hot.
Yesterday on our way home after a doctor's appointment, we stopped at a Hardee's we like. I saw a placard near the register that advertised a new Tex Mex burger. We both like that type of food so we ordered one of their new Tex Mex Bacon Thickburgers.
First, they had me at "bacon." And, yes, there were at least 3 good-sized slices on this baby, along with the usual suspects: lettuce and tomato. That's where the similarity to average ended.
The meat was topped with a goodly amount of pepper-jack cheese, slabs of roasted red bell pepper, chunks of jalapeno peppers and, finally, lightly sauteed onions. Great combination of flavors and it was a very attractive-looking sandwich. And...it tasted as good as it looked.
I think Hardee's has a winner here.
