Fast Food Review: Carl's Jr. Sausage Biscuit
"I'd love to try the sausage biscuit" I said to the woman behind the counter.
"Would you like anything else?" she asked.
I told her no thanks, she made a couple of motions at a lightning speed, and next thing I knew she was handing me a wrapped biscuit in a paper sack. I took it out to the car.
It was barely warm, but I'm not complaining. I'm sure they made a bunch of them ahead of time and left them under heat lamps. They couldn't be expected to make free biscuits to order.
It was still good - or rather, the buttermilk biscuit was good. It was flaky and tasty. The sausage was merely okay. The only other fast food sausage biscuit I have ever had is McDonald's, and this was about the same: surprisingly little flavor considering the amount of fat.
Would I rather have this sausage biscuit than the McDonald's version? Sure. But I live three blocks from McDonald's and the nearest Carl's is three miles away. And, to be honest, I prefer the frozen Jimmy Dean turkey sausage biscuits over either. So I don't think I'll ever be trying one of these again. But it was better than I was expecting. And, of course, it was free.
