    wow…two of my favorite things combined on a bun…shame no hardees around though

  2. Adam Bomb says:

    Yeah, the Hardee’s in my city closed a few years ago ๐Ÿ™ Sounds like a good burger, though.

  3. I’ve yet to try any of these cold-cut on burger combinations….seems a bit strange to me. Anyone else feel the same? Anyone else tried it?

  4. brad says:

    Saw a sign for this at Hardee’s yesterday and have been thinking about it ever since

  5. brad says:

    Also, for all that and how big it is, 650 calories is pretty good.

  6. Cassaendra says:

    I swear that’s gotta be 650 calories per bite. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve passed by a Hardee’s for years. I think this may very well be what pushes me through their doors…

  7. Adam Bomb says:

    Bear: I had the Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger that Hardee’s had years ago, and I think it had roast beef on it. It was an interesting experience, but not something I’d eat regularly. It just seems like an awful lot of meat for one burger! I’d give it a shot once, though.

  8. maxchain says:

    This looks genuinely dangerous, and I want to try it.

  9. ChrisSh says:

    @Bear – I couldn’t agree more. Roast beef and angus burger just don’t seem like they would go together. Just thinking about the incredible different textures grosses me out for some reason.

  10. Marianne says:

    @ Bear … I’ll agree as well. Ugh!

  11. @Bear and @Ryan I’m with you guys and everyone else
    sorry but that just looks gross to me. ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Harleen says:

    I’m also with everyone else. Too much going on for my taste, and it just doesn’t look that appealing. Unless it’s bacon, I don’t need a meat topped burger.

  13. Jessica says:

    Okay, what is Hardee’s problem with topping their burgers with other meat products (other than bacon, of course)? They also do this at breakfast – they layer on three meats sometimes! I can only assume that this actually sells well, or they would stop. I can’t stomach two different meats like this. I would take the top bun and eat it with the roast beef, then eat the bottom bun with the burger, and I would have two sandwiches. I actually miss Hardee’s roast beef sandwiches. They were always so cheap – cheaper than Arby’s!
    Actually, I miss the old Hardee’s in general. They once had roast beef and fried chicken. It was like three fast food restaurants all in one!

  14. ratbuddy says:

    Cup of jus, not au jus ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ Bear

    I cant’ say I’ve tried the cold cut trend on fast food burgers, but a long running staple in my area, from an Irish Pub called Mike’s Place, is the Big O’ Burger. It’s a half pound burger topped with Virginia Smoked Ham and Swiss. I must say, it’s damn good, and I doubt Hardee’s or Carl Jr.s, let alone In N Out, could even come close to how kick ass it is.

    On the topic at hand… I love French Dip subs, but I don’t think I would want to mix one with a burger. It just seems so unnecessary to me. I haven’t had Hardee’s roast beef in decades. Do they still even serve plain old roast beef sandwiches anymore. There was once a time that the roast beef was their main attraction. They used “do” roast beef much better than Arby’s ever could.

    I’m with Jessica. I miss the “real” Hardee’s, and just can’t get behind the latest version perpetrating themselves to be Hardee’s, yet pimping burger porn.

  16. Adam Bomb says:

    @Jessica: Wow, I’ve never heard anyone say that they missed the “old” Hardee’s. I used to work there about 14 years ago, and it was abysmal. We had two Hardee’s stores in my city, and the food quality and standards were just poor in comparison to every other fast food place around. Maybe we just had a couple of bad restaurants…

  17. drpep says:

    That looks good and it does not look good. If there was a Hardees around I’d by one but the thought of au jus on the burger part is gross.

  18. Jessica says:

    @Adam Bomb: I also used to work there 14 years ago! How funny! I was 15-16 years old at the time, and I had to work breakfast-lunch on Saturdays and Sundays. I went in at 6 and worked until after lunch. The work was horrible, but the food in our restaurant was good, except for the burgers, which were horrible. I would eat the roast beef sandwiches, hot dogs, and fried chicken (plus the sides). It is funny that the are now known for their burgers! Actually, they always had the Frisco burger, now that I think about it. That was the only burger I would actually eat, but it only came around about twice a year. That is still what I eat, on the rare occasion that I eat at Hardees for a meal besides breakfast.

  19. Adam Bomb says:

    @Jessica: Yeah, I always liked the Frisco burger. I’d eat some of the food when I worked there, but I was pretty picky. We never did have hot dogs at our Hardee’s, though… We would regularly poke holes in the unbaked biscuits and drop them in the fryer. When the were done, we’d roll them in cinnamon and sugar to make donuts. We also sucked helium out of the tank in the back room…

  20. cress says:

    I remember as a kid the only thing I would get at Hardees(when dragged their by my parents) was a hot dog w/bun. It was good. I mean, who could screw up a hot dog? Hardees burgers used to be the ass-end of fast food burgers. They were awful! NOW..they are some of the BEST out there! AND I USED TO HATE HARDEES! I think adding more meat on top of beef is stupid also. Hardees burgers are good enough w/o adding OVERKILL on top of them.

  21. Jessica says:

    @AdamBomb – I think you unknowingly invented Hardee’s new fare – biscuit holes. They are exactly what you described – little biscuit dough pieces fried and rolled in sugar and cinnamon!
