Piquant Meat-Free Burgers

The Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s Beyond Spicy BBQ Cheeseburger is Indulgent

— June 25, 2020 — Lifestyle
The Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s Beyond Spicy BBQ Cheeseburger comes as a new meat-free sandwich from the QSR brand that will offer consumers a new take on the namesake meat-free burger to enjoy this summertime. The burger starts off with a plant-based Beyond Burger patty that is then topped with jalapeños, onion rings and a melted pepper jack cheese all served on a sesame seed bun. The burger is available on its own or as part of a combo to let customers choose how they'd like to try it out.

The Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s Beyond Spicy BBQ Cheeseburger is available at participating locations nationwide but only for a limited time to make it a meat-free summertime exclusive.
