Review: Carl's Jr. - Biscuit 'N' Gravy

Long a staple at sister chain, Hardee's, Carl's Jr.'s Biscuit 'N' Gravy is a simple affair: a made-from-scratch biscuit smothered in hot sausage gravy.

It's 99 cents per order.

This one is a pretty good value and doesn't come pre-smothered (a good thing since the biscuit would end up pretty soggy otherwise).

It comes in a Hardee's-branded box either to highlight the biscuit recipes origins or because they haven't made Carl's Jr. boxes for biscuits yet.

They gave me a lot of sausage gravy. The gravy container was actually bigger than my biscuit and the biscuit was actually a good size already. Especially when you consider what you pay for an individual serving of mashed potatoes and gravy at KFC, this was like the gravy steal of the century!

The gravy had a nice thickness but a bit of a muted flavor: slightly creamy, slightly peppery. Not bad, but I wasn't jumping off the walls for it. There were a good amount of sausage bits in it though.

The biscuit is new to California so I was looking forward to trying it. It had a nice, crusty shell and was spongy soft inside but there was a bit more chew to it than I would have like. I also wanted it to be more buttery.

Overall, Carl's Jr.'s Biscuit 'N' Gravy was just okay for me. I probably wouldn't go for it again, but I would point out that there aren't many fast food options for biscuits and gravy and it is pretty cheap for what you get.
