We are currently in the season of Lent so the Redhook Beer-Battered Cod Fish Sandwich is being featured at Hardee’s. Next in line looks like a big contrast… call it the battle of good versus evil. GrubGrade reader Grant (@gwalkamoly on Twitter) sent over a menu image of the newest Thickburger from Hardee’s and it’s called El Diablo (The Devil in Español).
El Diablo Thickburger features Cheesy Jalapeño Poppers, sliced jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, bacon & a fiery habanero sauce on a Fresh Baked Bun. Grant says El Diablo had “good texture and heat.” Priced at $6.19 for the 1/3 lb. burger and $7.49 for the 1/2 lb. burger. Also available as Big Chicken El Diablo. El Diablo hasn’t been released nationally yet, but some locations get the next LTO early (Springfield, Illinois) so keep an eye out for it.
