Carl's Jr. Philly Cheesesteak Burger features thinly-sliced steak, grilled onions, green peppers, Swiss and American cheeses, mayo, and a beef patty (in various sizes and number) on a plain or fresh-baked bun (depending on which version you go with). It's also available at sister chain Hardee's.
The Six-Dollar version was $5.89 but I received this one courtesy of Carl's Jr.
The Six Dollar is huge; it's actually bigger than some casual dining burgers and dwarfs most fast food premium burgers (albeit with more of a price premium).
As you can imagine, there's a lot of beef going on here but it feels more like its competing with itself rather than complementary. I'd taste beef and struggle to figure if it was the patty or the steak. It's not like bacon where it's different and distinctive taste. The steak had a nice texture to it and the burger patty was well-seasoned.
The fresh-baked bun was excellent. It was soft but durable and exhibited a freshly baked quality like that of quality bread. I wonder if they'll sell me just a bun so I can toast it and eat it with butter in the morning...
