I am not a big fan of chain restaurants but every once in a while one does something that perks my interest. This time it’s Chili’s with their Smokehouse Bacon Big Mouth Burgers. The mammoth burger features extra-thick applewood-smoked or sugar and chilie-rubbed bacon. Click here to watch Chili’s commercial for them.
Chili’s offers the new burgers in three different flavors:
Jalapeno – Extra thick-cut applewood smoked bacon topped with layers of smoked cheddar cheese, crunchy tortilla strips, jalapeños and mayo. Served with jalapeño-ranch dressing on the side.
Southern – Extra thick-cut brown sugar & chile-rubbed bacon topped with smoked cheddar cheese, crispy onion strings and mayo. Served with ancho-chile BBQ sauce on the side.
Triple-the-Cheese – Extra thick-cut jalapeño applewood smoked bacon triple-layered with smoked cheddar, Swiss and provolone cheeses, sauteed onions and jalapeño-ranch dressing. Served with jalapeño-ranch dressing on the side.
I am curious to see what the extra-thick bacon is like. I like my bacon crispy and I can imagine that this thick cut bacon is going to be chewy. I hope this new burger isn’t a letdown like the Wendy’s Baconator was which turned out to be a chewy greasy mess.
Once I try one of these I will give a full review of it. In the meantime if you have had one of these please share your experience by adding a comment.
