Reality Check Jeremy Goldberg 22 comments

As part of their American Vintage campaign, McDonald's Japan released the Diner Double Beef burger, their image of a 1950s diner steak plate in hamburger form: double 100 percent beef patties with a fried egg, a slice of cheese, onions, Chicago-style steak sauce, and a mashed potato sauce on a classic whole wheat bun.

The newest burger from Jack in the Box features a beef patty with bacon mixed right into it, hickory smoked bacon, and creamy bacon mayo sauce on a new "gourmet" brioche bun. Clearly, we had to try it. More

We Try the Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy's

Reality Check Todd Brock 13 comments

While they're fancying up the bookends by going all ciabatta on you, Wendy's has also quietly upped their game with a few new toppings. It all makes for a tasty-as-hell-sounding burger, but the reality is far less impressive. More

We Try the Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger (and New Buns!) from Hardee's and Carl's Jr.

Reality Check Todd Brock 10 comments

Thinly-sliced steak? Check. White cheese? Check. Onions and green peppers? Check—with even a slight bit of blackened blistering if you look closely. But I'm convinced that a huge part of my positive Philly experience came from the new bun. More

We Try the New Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger from Hardee's & Carl's Jr.

Reality Check Todd Brock 15 comments

This is like doing a shot of straight wing sauce and then chasing it with an otherwise-nondescript-but-still-too-blue-cheesy fast-food burger. More

Hey, Burger King, we need to talk. I tried the new fry burger and now I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or just walk away. More

Reality Check Robyn Lee 9 comments

For a limited time, McDonald's in Norway offered the New York Beef made with a 100 percent Norwegian beef patty topped with cheese, bacon, shredded lettuce, mayo, slices of tomato, diced onion, and ketchup on a sesame seed bun. As for what makes that New York-themed, I don't know. But being a New Yorker, I had to try it. More

We Try Shake Shack's New Fresh-Cut Fries

J. Kenji López-Alt 54 comments

Earlier this morning, we announced that starting today, the Upper East Side location of Shake Shack would replace the chain's standard frozen crinkle-cut fries with fresh-cut fries. But we're not ones to pass judgment without testing out the goods at hand, so I immediately jumped on the 6 train and stopped in to test them out. My initial reaction? Damn, these are some good fries. More

Shake Shack to Premiere Fresh Cut Fries at UES Location Today

J. Kenji López-Alt 25 comments

We love Shake Shack, but we've often wondered how a restaurant that prides itself on its freshness and quality of ingredients could choose to serve the crinkle-cut frozen fries they've been using since their inception. That's why we were so excited when we heard the news that starting this morning at 11 a.m. they would be replacing their frozen fries with fries cooked from fresh hand-cut potatoes. More

New Mexican Festival Burgers Come to McDonalds Japan

Erin Jackson 2 comments

McDonald's Japan recently added three new salsa topped (and spicy jalapeño cheese sauce smeared) burgers to their menu, as part of a "Mexican Festival" promotion. If you can take the TV spot's word for it, they're "Rrrrrico!" More

Reality Check: McDonald's New Quarter Pounders

Reality Check Dennis Lee 27 comments

McDonald's recently upgraded their Quarter Pounder with three new variations: Bacon Habanero Ranch, Bacon and Cheese, and Deluxe Quarter Pounder. But despite the nice makeup job, that sad, tired beef still shows through. More

Reality Check: We Try Wendy's New Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger

Reality Check Todd Brock 60 comments

After product testing earlier this year, Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger reportedly scored higher than any other promotional hamburger in recent Wendy's history. How you feel about it will likely boil down to how you feel about Wendy's, period. More

The Monkey Style Burger, an In-N-Out Burger Topped with Animal Style Fries

Robyn Lee 15 comments

Try to order a Monkey Style burger at In-N-Out and you'll be refused. But you can order Animal Style fries (fries topped with cheese, spread, and grilled onions) and a burger separately and combined them yourself. More

NPR Tackles the Monstrosity of Wendy's 9-Patty T-Rex Burger

Robyn Lee 7 comments

Until last week, you could get the T-Rex Burger—a cheeseburger featuring nine quarter-pound patties and nine slices of cheese—at just one Wendy's location in Manitoba, Canada. Not wanting to look like they condoned the 3,000 calorie meat tower, Wendy's took the semi-secret item off the menu after someone posted about the burger on Reddit. But nothing (aside from common sense) is stopping you from combining three triple cheeseburgers. More

Video: Hands-Free Whopper Holder from Burger King Puerto Rico

Robyn Lee 2 comments

Burger King Puerto Rico celebrated its 50th anniversary by treating 50 of its most loyal customers to the Hands-Free Whopper Holder. Because, damn it, you shouldn't have to deny yourself the pleasures of eating a Whopper just because your hands are tied up playing a guitar/giving someone a tattoo/walking a pack of dogs/painting your nails/riding a bike/etc. The Whopper-eating never has to stop! Never! More
