Hey YYC – ready for a steal of an (incredibly tasty) deal?

Our friends at Carl’s Jr. are bringing you an offer like none other: Triple Double Deals.

They’ve taken three delicious burgers on their menu and loaded them with DOUBLE the meat and cheese – here’s the best part though: they’re on special for just $3.99 each. I froze for a second to process this before grabbing my keys and heading straight to Carl’s Jr. for lunch.

I picked up one of each of the burgers to test out the whole lineup. First, I started with the Double Cheeseburger. This one is quite obviously the “classic” option, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a really tasty take on it. I ate the whole thing. A little too quickly, I might add; my coworker made a comment and it made everything awkward for a solid minute.

Double Cheeseburger: Two charbroiled all-beef patties topped with American cheese, onions, ketchup, mustard, dill pickles on a plain bun.

Moving onto a more exciting burger: the Jalapeno Double Cheeseburger. I’m a fan of spicy food so I really like the extra kick from the jalapenos. I had no idea what Santa Fe sauce was going into this but I am proud to have learned this and I’m gonna see if I can make some at home to use with other meals. I ate this one at a normal human’s pace – much better call.

Jalapeno Double Cheeseburger: This fiery feast features Santa Fe Sauce, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, two charbroiled beef patties, lettuce and tomato all served on a plain bun.

It turns out today that I learned two things: the second lesson of the day was to not try and be a hero and eat three burgers in one sitting. I reaaaally regret eating the first two whole as I attempted to power through the third burger, the California Classic as best as I could. I only made it halfway through – a pity, because this one was my favorite of the bunch. I’ve never had a burger with thousand island dressing and grilled onions before. It was sweet – both the sauce and the burger itself. I ended up eating the other half when I got home from work.

The California Classic: Double meat, double cheese, grilled onions, thousand island dressing, lettuce & tomato on plain bun.
