    I live in the midwest, so I hope that burger comes out here. Anyone know what the odds are of it making it out east?

  2. Snackeroo says:

    Now this is something I’ve never seen before, Cheetos on a burger? I should just make my own to test it out since I always have a bag of Hot Cheetos around.

  3. Sandy says:

    That is just wrong on every level.

  4. Alex K. says:

    I imagine this tasting good but being a soggy mess.

  5. Al says:

    I’m surprised that Jack in the Box didn’t think of this first… This is in their wheelhouse, and it’d be perfect for a munchie meal.

  6. Axel says:

    I’ve been putting Flamin’ Hot Cheetos into my McDouble for ages.

  7. BigBelly says:

    It’s all fun and games, until that sauce coated cheeto rolls down your shirt

    this seems pretty uninspired, and I can’t see the heat from the cheetos cutting through all that cheese sauce, not that they’re even that hot to begin with. CJ’s is a 10 minute ride to bring home, so I don’t know if the crunch would survive.

      Yeah, I think this would definitely be a “eat it there” proposition. Also, not really a fan of chips in sandwiches. The Taco Bell Fritos burritos don’t do much for me either.

  8. Tony says:

    I wouldn’t touch that burger with a 10 foot pole.

  9. CulinaryZerg says:

    Coming from a guy who loves hot Cheetos, nacho cheese sauce, and burgers….

    That thing looks disgusting.

    I can’t wait for the Andy Capp’s Hot Fries Burger!

  11. Jonathan Wayne says:

    This is just wrong and definitely belongs at Jack in the Box. I’d try this before I would try that disgusting Little Caesar’s bacon pizza though.

    Where in LA is this? I’m flying into LAX on Tuesday. Thanks in advance

    Tried this here in Los Angeles about a week ago. For those that think these are actual hot cheetos, they are not. They seem to be hot cheetos made specifically for Carls Jr as they do not have any heat at all and the texture is softer no crunch. This burger has even more problems as it is terribly dry as well, needed a sauce (hot cheeto sauce?) to go with all of the dry ingredients.

    I cannot get down with this trend of incorporating snack/junk food into fast food. The Doritos Tacos from Taco Bell are decent, but this doesn’t seem appealing at all. Maybe some folks will dig it, but I’ll pass 🙂

  15. Cory says:

    I’ll say that it looks quite good, but as I am a slob anyhow, this would be a nightmare to eat. I’ll somewhat regretfully pass on this, plus all the other chip-stuffed entrees out there (burgers, burritos, pizza). Feel, as well as taste, is part of the overall eating experience for me.
