Carl's Jr. Breakfast Sandwich - Nah, it's just not that good

rworange Jul 4, 2006 03:17 PM

Burger, egg, bacon, cheese, home fries all between two sesame seed buns. You would think that had potential. It tasted like nothing.

All I remember was there was too much catsup on top of the homefries ... something visit-specific.

However, I just kept thinking with each bite, why doesn't this taste like anything but ... soft.

Although I don't usually eat at Carl's Jr. just based on their nasty advertising campaigns in the past ... the food doesn't rise above their unpleasantness for me ... after months of driving by and being intrigued, curiousity got the best of me.

It is just not worth the calories or cholesterol.

As tasteless as their commercials.

      It's not just their breakfast sandwiches that are tasteless. Two weeks ago, I had to grab something to eat so I could take some medication and Carl's Jr. was the only thing nearby, so I pulled up and ordered their Breakfast Burrito.

      Two bites later, the rest was in the trash. I wish I could say it tasted bad. Unfortunately, it didn't taste like anything. At all. Even the eggs were tasteless.

      Never again.

        Yeah, that's excactly it. It is not bad, it doesn't taste like anything and for all that fat and calories it should.
