    Tried it. Does NOT live up to expectations. I didn't really dig it that much.

    I agree. It sounds good on paper, but ends up way too greasy.

    I'm not opposed to the concept of getting a grilled cheese sandwich at a drive-thru.

    As far as Im aware, what Carls Jr is offering up is NOT a grilled cheese. Thats a grilled meat & cheese. No equivalent found on ANY kids menu.

    I thought it was pretty dang good. Most definitely not grilled cheese however. It's a burger with a LOT of cheese.

    That's not a grilled cheese. :scowl:

    Bread + Cheese = grilled cheese

    Other ingredients are unacceptable.

    +1.

    WTH? Have their ad guys never had a proper grilled cheese sandwich? There's NO burger in it.

    That's a cheeseburger w/ extra cheese.

    They should just call it 'That Really Cheesy Burger'

    The first time I heard the ad on the radio I thought 'Sweet, something I can eat at Carls Jr.' Then I got the ad in the mail with a picture of it and immediately said 'Thats not a grilled cheese'
     
  13. You don't butter the outside of the bread?? :eyebrow: Also grilled cheese with tomater slices are fantastic!!

    that would be a grilled tomato sandwich with cheese. if there's anything other than condiments i between the bread then the cheese becomes a modifier rather than the focus of the sandwich.

    Have you ever tried putting Mircal Whip inside with the cheese? Gives it a nice zing to the flavor.

    While not intending to, I DID laugh at that part. Reflex I suppose.

    Tomato is awesome on a grilled cheese.

    The state of denial.
    Personally, I like to grill the tomatoes first, then make the sammich and grill that. I also prefer nice, thick slices of bread; none of this paper-thin Sunbeam crap!

    Yup. This. That is in no way a grilled cheese sammich--it's a cheeseburger.

    (Although I somewhat disagree with this post; grilled cheese can be good with tomato, avocado, etc. Still, when you put a patty on it, it's no longer grilled cheese.)
