Review: Rally's - Bacon Cheddar Crisp

Checkers / Rally's Bacon Cheddar Crisp consists of a seasoned beef patty, crispy bacon crumbles, ketchup, diced red onions, and warm cheddar cheese on a toasted sesame seed bun.

It comes as part of the 4 for $3 deal.

Just as a disclaimer, I don't live anywhere close to a Rally's so the burger sat for an hour before I was able to eat it. Still, it was pretty nice despite the lukewarm temperate.

There was a surprisingly generous amount of bacon in the burger, especially given the price. It seemed to amount to more than the three paper-thin strips you might get at some places. There managed to be some slightly crispy bits of bacon even after the hour-long drive (to go with the occasional chewy bits).

The way the bacon was compacted and cut made me think it was chili for a split second. Combined with the ketchup, the bacon added a bit of a barbecue flavor to the burger. The onions contributed to the same feeling and gave the burger some bite as well as a nice crunch.

The beef patty was still surprisingly moist and just meaty enough for a value burger. The cheese sauce was fairly mild.

The bun was soft throughout with a somewhat marshmallow-like sponginess. It held together well and didn't overwhelm.

Overall, Checkers / Rally's Bacon Cheddar Crisp turned out really well and represents an outstanding value for a fast food bacon burger.
