Unlike breakfast burritos from other restaurants, the tortilla shell keeps opening up. It has quite a few carbs to make you feel full for a long time. Price: FREE (with coupon from PR peeps) I think you should start getting medals for surviving the ordeals of eating these things. Bottomline – It was a surprising change to other breakfast burritos on the market, although it was too spicy, and tasted more like a soft taco with egg in it. I had high hopes for this one, since I love ‘country style’ foods. Food reviewer Ian Keiner (Peep This Out) spotted the El Diablo Breakfast Burrito on the menu at his local Carl’s Jr. in Southern California selling for $4.49.A combo is also available for $6.99 (prices may vary). George Orwell’s Animal Farm. At first sight, it looks and feels really big. @Kristina – You got salsa with yours? She’d probably prefer to not be slapped for it though. It’s made for men who have the huge brass cojones to write a heart-warming sonnet that uses the Shakespearean rhyme scheme ABAB CDCD EFEF GG to proclaim their love for combing the manes of their My Little Ponies. The egg and pico de gallo salsa are really non factors. Being in a room filled with Robin Williams clones. Does that count? Aww, I feel special that you’re finding something I can buy, Marvo. I’d slap my own mom for some of that shit. Enough reviews of things I can’t buy. Look for future 1984 references. The burrito features crumbled chorizo, scrambled eggs, shredded jack and cheddar cheeses, Hash Rounds, and pico de gallo, wrapped up in a soft flour tortilla. I’m prefer Waffle House hash browns over the Cracker Barrel hash brown casserole..my mother has a recipe that she makes at home that’s exactly the same thing. I think this needs more types of meat. Six grams of dietary fiber. We ate it in the car on the way home so the hash browns weren’t soggy at all. Sausage gravy was a little weak. Waffle House is great for waiting out a drunken stupor, but Cracker Barrel has pancakes with real maple syrup and that hash brown casserole. I still might try it with some salsa. There is no Jack here. This is a launch day review of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s newest breakfast offering: The Grilled Steak, Egg & Cheese Burrito.YouTube food reviewer mrhappy0121 (Greg) picked up the new burrito early this morning and took a moment to share his thoughts on the new breakfast … Marvo-honey, you do have health insurance from that non-profit place you work for, right? Pros: Meant for the daring eater. A combo is also available for $6.99 (prices may vary). All I could taste was the egg, tortilla, ham, and sausage gravy, although the white gravy was a little weak, making biscuits everywhere cry a little. But does the new El Diablo Breakfast Burrito deliver the heat? @Sea Hag – Some day I’ll will end up at a Hardee’s and the Happy Star will hug me. The cavalcade of ingredients not only consists of the trifecta of pig products — sausage, ham, and bacon — it also has scrambled eggs, hash brown nuggets, shredded jack cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, and white sausage gravy in a flour tortilla. Also the ingredients are very uneven inside. The spiciness overpowered the other ingredients. @Jen T. – I like to give some George Orwell love once in awhile. With all of those ingredients, I was thinking some would overwhelm others, like normal people being stuffed in a room with Robin Williams clones, and it turns out that I was correct. I know this isn’t necessarily a new item, but I saw some advertising for the Chorizo Egg and Cheese Burrito from Carl’s Jr, and I wanted to give it a try. I was hoping there would be a strong sausage and bacon flavor, but I guess ham is the Highlander and there can only be one in this breakfast burrito. It was $2.49 for the biscuit and $3.69 for the burrito, but I got the burrito courtesy of Carl's Jr… I scan the menu and to my delight, I find something I have never eaten for breakfast, or any meal to my knowledge, anywhere. We had an amazing nap after eating it.

Very hearty, and looks like I will be full for both breakfast and lunch. Talk about irony! @Natalie – Maybe I’ll review some cereal or an energy drink. It looks horrible, I think I just had a heart attack from looking at the picture. Horse, goose, capybara, gator and frog. They make Mr. T pity himself. @Heidi – I already have enough medals around my neck. The spiciness overpowered the other ingredients. As for why Marvo would be frozen…eh…Marvo had brain freeze from one too many Slurpees and needed a cure. Hmm, 47 grams of fat, huh? My breakfast companion orders a breakfast burrito and sides. Salsa would definitely make this better. Seahag: We don’t have a Hardees in my city for whatever reason, but Chick-fil-A is the best for fast food breakfast. It’s made for the small dogs who go up to significantly bigger dogs and bark the words, “You are my bitch.”. I felt the whole thing was a little dry, and maybe could use some sauce or maybe some melted cheese. Carl’s Jr. is the Southern equivalent of Hardee’s, but no self-respecting person would eat anything anything but breakfast at Hardee’s… and if Chick-fil-A or Cracker Barrel is open for breakfast then forget Hardee’s. @Natalie: Oh man, now I wish they made a breakfast burger type sandwich ‘country style’ on a biscuit with gravy… That might even be able to take the crown as ‘messiest burger’ from the guacamole bacon one. Just checking. Decent tasting as a ham and egg burrito, since that most of what I could taste.. High in protein. There's a pork-chop and gravy breakfast … Perhaps if I ate it in the restaurant instead of eating it ten minutes later in the comfort of my love shack, the hash brown would’ve still been crunchy. Name: Carl's Jr. “The Breakfast Burger” The Pitch: Charbroiled All-Beef Patty, Egg, Bacon, American Cheese, Hash Brown Nuggets and Ketchup on a seeded bun. I probably wouldn't get it again, and I would much rather have the breakfast biscuit offerings from Carl's Jr … I would have preferred they tone down the spice of the meat, while adding a few more textures. @Erika – Trust me. Size: 308 grams However, I would’ve preferred it with one meat rather that three lol I also think the application of salsa helped. Value Grade: C – I paid $3.99 for the Chorizo Egg & Cheese Breakfast Burrito, and comparable to other items I can get from Carl’s Jr, or other breakfast burritos I can get from other places, I felt I was paying a little too much. That’s too bad this didn’t turn out to be better than average. (Nutrition Facts – 1 burrito – 770 calories, 47 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat, 495 milligrams of cholesterol, 1530 milligrams of sodium, 57 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of sugar, 6 grams of dietary fiber, and 31 grams of protein.). Despite not being able to taste all of the ingredients, it was decent as a ham and egg burrito, plus it had a nice heft to it, but I probably wouldn’t order it again. I figure it is about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds. Hmm…They should make some kind of salsa burger. The hash browns were soggy to the point where its texture was as soft as the eggs, so it didn’t add any crunch to it. But I’m going to need more than health insurance. Item: Carl’s Jr. Big Country Breakfast Burrito Price: FREE (with coupon from PR peeps) Size: 308 grams Purchased at: Carls’ Jr. The flavor and texture of the chorizo sausage is more like taco meat (actually I thought it was taco meat at first). This is it, I’m starting The Southern Impulsive Buy with reviews of only Krystal and Chick-fil-A. I also noticed that it didn’t stay together very well. I just have to find it. Apparently this has cheese on it as well, but as you can see from the picture, there really isn’t enough to make it even noticeable. The arrival of the new breakfast item coincides with the return of the the chain’s popular El Diablo Thickburger. Carl’s Jr. looks to add a spicy kick to your morning routine with the introduction of the new El Diablo Breakfast Burrito at participating locations. The El Diablo Breakfast Burrito … This makes it a little awkward to eat, especially at the end. @Natalie – I was going to write a Jack in the Box review, but because of your comment, I’m going to review something you can buy. I probably wouldn’t get it again, and I would much rather have the breakfast biscuit offerings from Carl’s Jr instead, that are cheaper and almost just as filling. This breakfast burrito is only meant for the audacious diner because its ingredients list makes the KFC Famous Bowl seem a little less famous, like going from Alec Baldwin to Daniel Baldwin, and its nutritional values would make a doctor’s heart skip a beat.
