Burger Wars: Where does Rally's rank?
Let's see what you all chose for me...
FoodTribe I asked you to pick a burger from Rally's for me to eat and review. It ended up a tie between the Smoky BBQ bacon Buford and the Baconzilla. To break the tie I asked our friend Remon Kok to choose one of the two, and he picked the Smoky BBQ bacon Buford.
Before we go any further I need to say, these fast food places are such clickbait. They never look anything like their photos. Obviously Rally's is no different. This burger must have been stepped on before I got it. Let's face it, this burger does not look appealing.
Does it taste better than it looks? The short answer is no.
I want to say I ate this as it comes – tomato and all. I pulled off a piece of the beef and tasted it, and the first thing I said was, "that is not beef". It had no flavor and the texture was nothing like ground beef. Don't get me started on that slimy tomato. I could barely taste the lettuce and pickles. The smoky flavor was strong, but a very artificial taste. You could not even tell there was cheese on it. The worst part about this is I burped up this burger the rest of the night, so nasty.
Now for some good news. The bun was nice and soft and the bacon was crispy the way I like it, but it did not have as much flavor as I would have liked. The onions still had some crispness and flavor.
I know this is the first one of this series, but this has to go to the bottom of the list. This could not even meet my low expectations. As far as I am concerned, I will never go back.
Have any of you eaten this burger? Tell me in the comments what you thought of it. I hope your week is going well. I love you all!
