    the bbq burger had soggy onions, not crispy. and the “monsterella” sticks are only longer…but they are also thinner..so you get the same amount as a normal cheese stick. and the flavoring isn’t all that. So basically, stick with the spicy chicken and the fry burger..both of those are delicious… and the chicken is a great value because you get a large portion of chicken for a dollar.

    I actually think the fry lovers burger isn’t that bad of an idea. Sometimes I want some fries but don’t want an order of fries. Maybe I want some mozzarella sticks, for instance.

  3. Rick says:

    Maybe I got a bad batch, but I really wasn’t impressed with the monsterella sticks. They didn’t have the stretch in the cheese that mozzarella sticks have. It certainly was an interesting texture with the fry batter but not something I would go out of my way for.

    I really wish Checkers would publish the full ingredients list for its new items, because clearly that picture is not just BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese on a hamburger. It looks by the image like there’s also onion rings and lettuce on it, but for all I know, there could be a blob of mayo under the BBQ sauce on each side, which would absolutely ruin the burger for me. And sadly, it wouldn’t be the first time a fast food place has done it. I really hate ordering food and not knowing what I’m going to get, and half the time the poor minimum wage paid cashier doesn’t know or care what’s on the new items either if I try to ask at the drive through. It’s a shame, because the picture looks good, but I’ve been burned often enough that it’s made me wary about trying anything I can’t confirm the exact ingredient list for.

      You complain a lot for something that costs a whole whopping dollar plus tax… are you serious? If you don’t want mayo just ask, it’s not rocket science dude.

      • Will Buckingham says:

        Clearly my complaint only applies to the $1 burgers listed above and is not a general indictment of their overall trend of not including full ingredient lists for the various sandwiches on their menu. There could just as easily be undesirable and unmentioned ingredients on a $6 burger, which would be a considerably larger amount to throw away if it made the food inedible to the buyer. For example, would you ever think Arby’s would put mayo on a BBQ brisket sandwich? Well they did, and I’m extremely glad I knew about it ahead of time, or I would have ordered the sandwich never even considering it might be there. More information is never a bad thing, and Checkers in particular is frequently lacking in it.

        • thehottoddy23 says:

          Agreed, Will. It is definitely hard to tell what is on the sandwich at times and even though you can always tell them “No _____!” to be safe, restaurants should definitely publish the full ingredient listing so customers are aware. As far the other user complaining about your complaints… um, this is a comment board and there are definitely going to be a few complaints on here so lighten up! Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

          • TJ says:

            You imply I said something obscene or personally hateful.. I merely thought it was a bit much to complain about considering the price. As you said, if you particularly hate an ingredient like mayo (I generally don’t like it myself), that’s a pretty standard thing to ask a place to omit. As for “a few complaints”.. this site is loaded with complaints by people expecting everything to be perfect like it’s gourmet food. I’m entitled to an opinion too. After reading the review today I’ll admit I was wrong and this sandwich is apparently terrible.. but perhaps you might “lighten up” a little yourself.

    I don’t each much fast food these days, but two or three eyars ago I was eating it pretty heavily and I must say if I’m going ot eat burger joing style fast food, it’s gonna be Checker’s. They have a diverse menu, to which they’re always adding new items or special deals, and they’re not ashamed of going big and unhealthy and putting taste over trends or healyh-conscienceness. And their price points on most of this stuff can’t be beat.

    Roadhouse burgers forever!

    • Robert says:

      Sadly I think Checkers/Rally’s has really gone downhill in the past 5 years or so. Their $1 burgers used to be so delicious. Now the meat on the burgers is way smaller and just tastes…off.

      The $1 Spicy Chicken is a FANTASTIC sandwich and such a deal, though.

      The Monsterella sticks are small. If you really like the fry seasoning, you’ll like ’em. If you prefer a typical cheese stick, don’t get ’em.

  6. Tom says:

    “Monsterella” sounds too much like “monstrosity” for my tastes.

  7. Nick says:

    I recently moved to Florida and I’ve been very impressed with Checker’s. To me, it’s Burger King quality at about half of the price. Had the BBQ burger and monsterella sticks. Both were good but they were out of marinara sauce. Ranch just isn’t the same for those.

    • Hmm... says:

      So burger king quality? That is a term that is rarely, if ever used around here. I never had checkers/rally’s but if it really is BK quality, I’ll never try them. I’d rather eat dog food.
