Has any daring W'er tried one of these? I think I clogged an artery just reading the article.

But of course!

I still think Fuddrucker's is better (and bigger!), but it's not like it's so much different from the "Six Dollar Burger" they were offering before. The problem is if you want the goodies you kinda have to get just 1/3 pound instead of the 2/3 pounder. (I prefer the western bacon cheeseburger version, myself. The mushroom one's pretty good, too)

I'm just wondering if Carl's Jr. is offering the same dealio as their Hardee's counterpart?

Carl's is currently featuring a Double Pastrami burger - two patties topped with a heap of Pastrami.

I've yet to order one, but I will. Oh, I will.

Thickburgers are the best thing Hardee's has ever done. I haven't bought a burger from another fast food chain since. I tried eating one of the 2/3 pounders back in June just for kicks. I could barely finish the burger, and I basically couldn't move for the rest of the day. Completely ridiculous.

Eh, you can get all that on a burger from Steak 'n Shake. Their triple patty burgers weigh in at 3/4 of a pound. Plus, you can their totally awesome milk shakes.

Packers FB William Henderson was working the drive-thru at a Hardee's near Lambeau Field on Monday, pushing that new burger. He signed a bunch of stuff (including the box they came in!?), and proceeds from all Monster Thickburgers sold there that day went to his diabetes-fighting charity. (More Packers-in-the-community info here.)

He's also put together a Packer beefcake calendar to raise funds for that cause...

(image removed)

...featuring several Packers in, uh, less than a full game uniform. Makes a great Christmas stocking stuffer for the ladies. :-)

Good ol' William...such a legit class act and great guy. And I'd say that even if I didn't work with him every week on Monday Night Kick-Off.

And yes, I ate that gargantuan burger thing. I skipped the next meal (a rarity for a true Wisconsinite like yours truly)...but it was worth it. Oh, the cholesterolicious goodness.

Forget the burgers, the commercial for them, with the girl eating one while riding the mechanical bull is the best part of this entire burger being brough to us!

They were recently touting the "Double Six Dollar Burger" and that one looked like it came with more trimmings. No butter though, that I'm aware of.

They actually had the Monster burger before, back before the whole Thickburger thing started. I always missed it when they did away with the old line of burgers. Now it's back, and I'm happy. Why? Because it's the one major fast food burger in my area that already comes without lettuce and tomato, so I don't have to make a special order. Yes, my priorities are screwy.

Now if Wendy's will just bring back the Monterey Ranch Chicken instead of this Wild Mountain crap, I'll be in the middle of a personal fast food golden age.

I know... I'm gonna die. But I'll be well-fed.

The Hardee's "Monster Thickburger" redux is basically the pre-CKE ownership Monster Burger in a thickburger form (2/3 pound instead of 1/2 pound). Carl's isn't offering it at this time.

The funny thing is, Hardee's commercial for the Monster says "The largest double-patty burger in the country". Yet their own sister chain is offering the double-patty Six Dollar, which is two half-pound patties.

Carl's Pastrami is a good one. The Pastrami Burger has been a staple of the regional chains around Salt Lake City, and it's nice to see it in a larger presence. I hope Hardee's picks up on it as well.

I finally had one last night. It is a single patty with Pastrami on top, and much smaller than the ad (Hey, go figure.)

I'll have it again, but to be honest, I think I'd rather get the Pastrami burger double pastrami hold the burger. I don't know if that is an option, though.

I was surprised at how much I liked pastrami on a Hamburger bun.

I want one! Pity we don't have any Hardee's restaurants here in Canada, though.

Added incentive to take a day trip into Niagara Falls, NY one day.

I'm a 300+ pound man, and I think the notion of something like this is grotesque. Granted, I'll eat the pounder at Fuddruckers, and I'll put any all you can eat Crab legs, wings, shrimp, or chinese joint out of business, but I refuse to eat an amount of fast food that huge. Fast food is gross as it is, and piling more onto the bun really doesn't seem like it'll make it better to me.

How's this for a "Good Morning Burger"? Courtesy of the Reuters newswire...

Carl's Jr. on Wednesday introduced the Breakfast Burger, a hamburger topped with a fried egg, hash browns, bacon and cheese, that weighs in at 830 calories and 46 grams of fat.

I think I could go all day on that.

I honestly think that Carl's Jr. is specifically targetting me for death with their recent burger moves. (He typed while finishing off his Pastrami burger combo)

I'm gonna have to try that. Red Robin has a similar burger, minus the hashbrowns, that I absolutely love.
