      It's the new TV ad campaign for(i think)Carl's Jr. Sounds pretty gross.

        They're selling it as a restaurant quality burger for people who don't want to deal with the hassles of restaurants--you know, all those annoyances like other people, waiters and waitresses, and tips. On TV the burgers look good. But all that corporate food looks good on TV.

          This could be a good concept.

            LA has definitely forgotten how to make a great burger. It doesn't surprise me that a major fast food chain is now exploiting the market.

              I'm so ashamed to be the first to admit that I actually had it. It was a larger than an average burger, 1/2 lb.?. It comes with onions, tomatoe, and lettuce. The burger was overdone and dry. Definetly not worth having again. Carl's Jr. should use some of that money from their advertising campaigns and put it into making better chow. Of course, isn't all fast food more about quantity than quality? That must be why Taco Bell survives.
