Tucker Shaw faces down Hardee's Monster Thickburger as well as some of the biggest burgers in fast food.
Here, he complains that the Monster Thickburger (right) was too much to fit in his mouth:
Success was not mine, for as the irresistible force (M.T.) met the immovable object (my face), my grip failed. In one seamless, slo-mo movement, patty slipped across patty, mayo oozed, bacon flopped floorward, bun split, and the entire construction crumbled.
What I salvaged was divine—in the most disgusting way. Well-seasoned beef, appropriately gooey cheese, remarkably crispy bacon, fresh roll. Too big by half for mortal stomachs but perfect for extreme eaters. Less fulfilling, alas, was the Philly Cheese Steak Thickburger, a gilded lily that piles cheesesteak fixings—undercooked onions and shaved beef that gets stuck between your teeth—atop the burger mountain.
Other burgers reviewed in his article include the Carl's Jr. Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger ("sagged under its own weight"), Wendy's Baconator ("bacon was limp and the cheese unmelted"), and Burger King's BK Stacker ("even the four-story Stacker is disappointingly compact and too greasy").
