Every couple of days, we complain that our American fast food branches are so boring. While Wendy's Japan gets lobster and caviar burgers, we're stuck with sriracha everything. Well, even though these mashed potato burgers from Carl's Jr. aren't exactly caviar, they're still about a million steps in the right direction. Guys. It's happening.
Testing in Compton, Calif., new Carl's Jr. Mashers are a monstrous twist on the hot roast beef sandwich with gravy. Instead of roast beef slices, the burgers feature your choice of breaded chicken. beef patty, or larger Thickburger-sized beef patty, which is then heaped with gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, and onion straws and served on Carl's signature "Fresh Baked Buns."
Insanely enough, test prices on this strange and indulgent line start at just $2.99 and go up to $4.99 depending on size and protein. Combo extra, best served with a side of chili-cheese fries for the full barbecue experience.
