CARPINTERIA, Calif. – Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s announced new menu items that feature Buffalo-wing-inspired flavors.

The Buffalo Blue Cheese Burgers at Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s feature a charbroiled beef patty topped with Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce, blue cheese crumbles, Swiss cheese, mayonnaise, red onion, tomato and lettuce. Hardee’s also is offering Buffalo Chicken Tenders dipped in Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce and served with buttermilk ranch dipping sauce. The new burger and chicken tenders currently are available at all Hardee’s locations. The Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger will be available at Carl’s Jr. starting Aug. 21.

“For most guys, football season isn’t football season without Buffalo wings and burgers,” said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. “So, since we’re in the burger business, we began playing around with the unique flavors of Buffalo wings on a burger and found that the combination tasted great. The spicy, vinegar kick of authentic Frank’s RedHot sauce is cooled down by the fresh produce and the creaminess of the blue cheese crumbles and Swiss cheese. It really is the best of both all-American classics coming together for the first time.”

The Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger is available as a single, double or Six Dollar Burger or Thickburger starting at $2.89 for the single. The Buffalo Chicken Tenders are available at Hardee’s in three-piece and five-piece servings starting at $3.49, although prices for both items may vary by location.
