Looking for the best burger in and around Tustin? So are we! We are narrowing the field down to the finalists, but we are still awaiting your input. Had an out-of-body experience with a burger recently? Shoot a note to BestOf@TustinMagazine.com and let us know who makes the killer burger.
While we have your attention, though -- have you tried the "Six-Dollar Burger" at Carl's Jr.? Worth every one of the 949 dripping, juicy calories, including 562 from the fat alone. Add a large order of fries and you have yourself a 91 gram fat-fest topping out at 1569 calories! "Hold on 'Lizabeth -- I'm coming . . ." Definitely in the running for Best Drive-Through Burger.
Not enough? Pictured below is the Hardee's Monster Thickburger. At 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat, the Thickburger sets a new standard in heart-stopping fat content. Add a large order of fries, and you pass the 2000 calorie mark. By comparison, a stick of butter has only 800 calories and 88 grams of fat. In fact, you could wrap the stick of butter in fried bacon, and it would be a low-calorie snack compared to the Thickburger. Thank God we don't have any local Hardee's; I'd have to try it.
Actually, the bacon-wrapped stick of butter is sounding pretty good too.
And don't give us any nonsense about In-N-Out burgers. Yes, they are good, consistent burgers, but they don't hold a candle to the Six-Dollar Burger at Carl's. If we are going to chose the best burger in and around Tustin, it has to be epic.
