In what seems like an obvious answer to the new Roastburgers from Arby’s, now we get the Prime Rib Burger from Checker’s. The Prime Rib Burger is “authentic, tender prime rib sliced right off the roast” placed on top of a burger patty. All that meat is dressed with grilled onions, swiss cheese and peppercorn mayonnaise and placed on toasted sourdough bread.
It seems as though Arby’s is trying to redefine the burger. Checkers is now taking that a step further by adding of all things, meat to a burger. To me meat on top of more meat sounds like overkill. Bacon is acceptable but prime rib? However, grilled onions and swiss cheese is a welcome addition to any burger. I have the feeling that people will either love or hate this sandwich. Let us know which category you fall in.
