Carl's Jr.'s Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger takes a bit of buffalo wings and adds it to a burger, and features Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce, blue cheese crumbles, Swiss cheese, mayo, red onion, tomato, lettuce, and a charbroiled beef patty on a toasted sesame seed bun.
The premium Six Dollar Burger version comes with a Black Angus beef patty at $5.19, but I received this one courtesy of Carl's Jr.
This burger definitely subscribed to the "if it doesn't get all over the place, it doesn't belong in your face" Carl's Jr. slogan of old. There was plenty of Frank's RedHot to go around and it had a tangy, savory bite with a decent amount of heat that built up gradually and had me sniffling as I finished a half.
While buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese are a tried-and-true combination, it's also very salty here and makes it a bit hard to enjoy.
The Swiss cheese was creamy but, like a lot of fast food cheese, didn't add much in the way of flavor, at least not over the buffalo sauce and blue cheese. Adding in the second cheese was pretty superfluous.
The veggies were solid and plentiful, as tends to be the case with Carl's Jr. Six Dollar Burgers.
