Food Adventures leaves no plate unturned. We eat it all and have no rules. Sure, most of our stories highlight locally owned eateries with food that we have fallen in love with. From time to time we will go off track and do our tongue in cheek take on chain restaurants, or in this case the dreaded “fast food chains”
Fast food is a guilty pleasure for many, and a way to grab a quick bite in a pinch…. even these chains go crazy touting deals or big specials. Today, we go all out and try some of their biggest creations and we don’t count a calorie. These are the “Monsters of the Meatway” if you will. These are the “Big Daddys of the burger industry,” and we aren’t afraid to rank ’em in order. They are the always huge, sometimes sloppy, sandwiches that will never have you asking “where’s the beef?’
Sit back, loosen your belt, and indulge on these must eats. Food
Adventures presents the jaw dropping, must eat, top 5 “monster” burgers of the fast food industry:
FAST FOOD’S 5 MONSTER BURGERS:
1) “THE SUPER BIG BOY” at FRISCH’S RESTAURANTS:
The supersized version of the American favorite “Big Boy” burger. This one has the same amount of cheese, but 2 bigger patties, more lettuce and most imporantly, more of that unbelievable Frisch’s tartar sauce. It is a 1/2 pound of beef on the signature double decker bun, and it aims to please. It does just that and makes the grade as our #1 pick!
2) “THE DOUBLE WHOPPER SANDWICH” from BURGER KING:
Another giant version of a popular burger, the flame broiled “double whopper” is a very filling sandwich. Over the year’s the regular whopper has been shrinking in size. This burger is a push back towards yesteryear. The hearty, sesame seed bun finally gets challenged and does the job, strongly holding the lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, cheese and mayo together. The secret to this sandwich is the griled taste that is unmatched in the fast food world.
3) “DAVE’S TRIPLE CHEESEBURGER” at WENDY’S:
Not one, not two, but THREE patties, each one weighing a quarter of a pound make up this masterpiece. This “brick of beef” is packed with cheese and loaded with lettuce, tomato, mayo, pickles, ketchup, and onion. The soft bun holds this massive monster together. This sandwich is bursting with flavor but is not for the squeamish, as it has the most amount of meat in our list.
4) “THE BIG BUFORD” from RALLY’S:
Two “seasoned and seared” beef patties on a bun with all the fixins. That means cheese, mayonnaise, ketchup, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes and onions served on a premium, sesame seed bun. Grab a napkin, this fast food freakshow likes to drip condiments on your hands and shirt. Probably the most bang for your buck on the list, as Rally’s is known for good prices. It is a Food Adventure on a bun.
5) “THE 2/3rd POUND MONSTER THICKBURGER with CHEESE” from HARDEE’S:
We were surprised to find out this burger had the word “monster” in its name. It must be fate, so it rounds out our list. This is the only “bacon burger” on our list. It features two 1/3 lb. charbroiled 100% Black Angus beef patties, 4 strips of bacon, 3 slices of American cheese and mayonnaise. The bun is heralded as “fresh baked.” It doesn’t matter though because the lack of condiments on this one makes the burger pretty much uneatable. This sandwich is just all meat, no toppings. Pretty gross unless you are a pure carnivore.
There you have it. The “plumpest patties on a bun,” the “biggest boys of the drive thru” ranked in order.
How did we do? Did we nail it, or did we leave out one of the gargantuan bundles of meat on a bun?
