Review: Rally's - Cheese Champ

Rally's Cheese Champ is one of the bigger burgers that the chain offers and features a seasoned hamburger patty, with cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato, red onions, pickles, mayo, and ketchup.

The Cheese Champ is normally $3.39, but this one only cost me $1 with a coupon.

The bun was soft, but sturdy and hearty. It had a pretty nice feel to it; yielding but it's not going to fall apart on you.

They went with an ideal amount of ketchup and mayo; enough to taste, but not get all over the place (sorry, Carl's Jr.!)

The produce was mostly fresh and in good condition. The tomato was a good-sized slice and relatively firm rather than too ripe. The onions were few but crisp and the pickles were pretty standard.

The cheese was nicely melted over the relatively thick patty. The burger on the whole wasn't that big compared to other chains, but the patty was a really good size for it. It came off with a nice, slightly salt-and-peppered flavor and beefiness.

Overall, Rally's Cheese Champ is a solid, if unspectacular, burger. It doesn't really shine in any area, but still does a good job all around. It seems a little pricey at $3.39, but is a steal at $1. Then again, the $3-plus mark is about what most competitors' signature burgers are going for.
