Today Hardee's rolled out a new sandwich . . . the Prime Rib Thickburger. (Post-Dispatch/AP article) It is described on the menu as "a 1/3 lb. 100% Black Angus Thickburger topped with melted Swiss, then piled high with slices of Prime Rib, grilled onions and finished with Horseradish sauce, all on a bakery style Ciabatta roll." I think I'm hungry.
Thankfully there's one restaurant out there dedicated to selling people what they want . . . food that tastes good . . . instead of what the health-nuts are telling us we should be eating. And what some of them think we should be required to eat.
Be grateful that for the time being we still have the freedom to eat what we want. The rest of you can have your salads. I'll have a burger instead - or popcorn cooked in peanut oil - or whatever else the do-gooders tell me to avoid next.
P.S. Hardee's didn't pay for me for this post. But if they want to send me some free Prime Rib Thickburgers, I'd certainly take them.
P.P.S. I tried to find find a loadable photo of the sandwich at issue. I couldn't. To see it, look quickly when linking to hardees.com here. Note that you can also print a coupon for $1.00 off.
