It's not a big burger but I did not expect it to be at that price.
When I want a snack in my neighborhood, I usually get a bagel or a slice of pizza, so I don't see myself ever getting one of these again, but I liked it. The price is certainly good. But one things blows me away, and it's something I rarely talk about here: How the hell can this thing contain 510 calories?
I've seen in print that Rally's/Checker's is unhealthy even by fast food standards, but this puts things in perspective. This was one of the smallest fast food burgers I have ever seen. That's not a knock, because this is just a buck (or buck-fifty) and probably isn't intended to be a full meal for anyone but those with small appetites. But a comparable McDonald's cheeseburger has 300 calories; Burger King and Wendy's both offer the same size burger with 290 calories.
Chick-fil-A's Spicy Chicken Sandwich - which is a fried chicken breast - is 490 calories. I don't know how Checker's manages to grill a tiny burger and make it more unhealthy than a fried chicken sandwich, but that's impressive in its own way.
But even with this new information, next time Checker's comes out with an interesting burger promotion, I'll probably try it. Especially if it has "garlic" in the title.
