Review: Carl's Jr. - Budweiser Beer Cheese Bacon Fries

Carl's Jr.'s Budweiser Beer Cheese Fries features criss-cut fries topped with Budweiser beer cheese sauce and crumbled bacon.

They go for $3.99 at my local Carl's Jr. but I received an order courtesy of Carl's Jr.

I lucked out as my fries came piping hot from the fryer and were super crispy but still moist inside. The seasoning added a nice but not-too-heavy flavor. I was very happy with the fries.

The cheese offered a sharp cheddar note to go with a thick and creamy consistency. It didn't have the tanginess you might get with other beer cheese. While it went well with the fries, there wasn't much to go around and I found myself scraping for cheese at some points.

The bacon was thick but not crispy. It was salty but not all that smoky. It's okay for fast food but could be better.

While Carl's Jr.'s Budweiser Beer Cheese Fries were a solid and very enjoyable dish they don't showcase the namesake cheese enough.
