The Perfect Fry at an Airport?

Feast your eyes on the most perfectly prepared McDonald’s fries I have had in ages. Where did I find such wonderful, golden brown, crispy delight? At DFW airport in Terminal C. Wow. I probably hit it just right, but they were ON THEIR GAME that day. Outstanding.

I Wouldn’t Mind if Carl’s Jr. Brought Back Western Wednesdays

Over the early part of the summer Carl’s Jr. was doing something crazy. They offered the Western Bacon Cheeseburger for $1 on Wednesdays. The deal ran through the end of July, but it was incredible. You could buy up to four at the price and no additional purchase was required. Carl’s Jr. seems to recognize the toll that their ever-increasing menu prices are having on the everyday consumer. In addition to this special, the popular $5 All Star meals and a number of other rotating special prices (e.g. the California Classic) are giving guests at least a couple of affordable alternatives to their bigger ticket items. Insert applause.

Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s Charbroiled Slider All Star Meal Review

carls jr slider all star meal

With the introduction of sliders to the Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s menu there is now an additional All Star meal. We previously reviewed the All Star meals and found them to be a decent deal at a fast food restaurant known recently for it’s ever-increasing menu prices. Of the now five All Star Meals, the Chicken Tender one is still the best deal and the best, nutritionally. But the sliders do offer a nice alternative to one of the burger-based choices.
