Needing some lunch while on the road and traveling through the Midwest, I pulled into a Hardee's for a burger. It's been awhile since I've had a burger at Hardee's, I usually order the ham & cheese combo.
I went with the Frisco burger on this visit to the nation's 15th ranked fast food restaurant chain based on sales.
The Frisco Burger has a long on-the-menu, off-the-menu history at Hardee's dating back to the early 1990's. The current form is a 1/3 pound, charbroiled Angus beef patty, combined with bacon, Swiss cheese, tomato, a unique onion-flavored mayonnaise, all served on a buttered and grilled sourdough bread.
The burger was served up hot and fresh, along with fries right out of the fryer. Part of the Hardee's 'Thickburger' menu, the Frisco delivers on flavor, it tasted great! The burger was juicy, the bacon was crisp, the Swiss cheese was melted just right and the tomato combined with that onion-mayo was a perfect compliment. Whoever developed this burger did a really nice job marrying all those flavors and the Hardee's restaurant I visited prepared both the burger and fries perfectly.
I enjoyed my to-go meal, but it came at a fairly steep price for a fast food restaurant. My Frisco Burger, medium fries and medium drink cost me $9.53. And while that Frisco provided premium, gourmet burger taste, for that kind of money I'd rather be enjoying it at a tavern or a place like Red Robin with a cold beer to wash it down with.
This burger is not Bachelor on the Cheap friendly, nor is it a smart eat while driving down the interstate..... There was shirt spillage involved.....
The Hardee's Frisco Burger gets 3 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.
