First opened in Greenville, SC, Hardee’s is a ‘semi-national’ chain, mostly in the Eastern United States, and part of CKE (Carl Karcher Enterprises) which operates Carl’s Jr. in the Western US; the two share some menu items.
Hardee’s places a big emphasis on their breakfast menu, and offers a wider variety of choices than most competitors. Additionally, they push a “prepared fresh” method with their items. They bake their biscuits in-house, from scratch daily, and cook the other ingredients upon order.
On a whim, I picked up their “Monster Biscuit”, which is a pile of egg, bacon, sausage, shaved ham, and cheese. It surprised me on every level, and is surely one of the best fast-food breakfast offerings in the land. My only preference for “improvement” would be that Hardee’s also has a ‘country ham’ biscuit, and I think I’d prefer that ham on the Monster. Nevertheless, this is a good product, and as the advertising says, prepared fresh. Grab a couple today. Update 2/2016, Hardees has added a Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage breakfast biscuit to their menu. Locator.
