Me: Yum this burger is so good and meaty.
Beyond Famous Star: Surprise it’s actually a 100% plant-based patty you just couldn’t tell the difference. ... See MoreSee Less
Love it when people can’t accept that restaurants wish to cater to EVERYONE. You’re not the only one eating there. Get a burger if you want one stop trashing something someone else wants.
Thanks for being the first big fast food chain to have beyond. I hope the others will follow soon. Love it. I've been there almost every day since you got it.
All of these years emailing Corp to bring back the steak sandwich and this is what you choose. If you want a veggie burger...find some non-cow-killing rabbit food place and go there...bring back the steak sandwich damnit!
It’s so delicious and so much better than eating dead animals. Thank you for offering it. I pray you’ll keep it on the menu permanently.
The burger was great. Gf couldn't tell the difference between her regular patty and my beyond. I think the impossible burger is still better. I'm in no way vegan, just wanted to try out some of these new things and I don't regret it
Can I add bacon?
BRING BACK THE EL DIABLO 🍔!!!!!🔥🔥🔥
Thank you so much! Please keep it as a permanent menu item (and offer a full-vegan version -- your workers get confused when we order without mayo and cheese, and we're still paying for them). The East Oakland restaurant told me they're selling a lot, so I'm hopeful. If large demand brings the price down a bit, they'll be even more popular.
As a long-time I haven't been to a fast-food restaurant (besides vegan-friendly Taco Bell) for at least 15 years, until now!
It's bomb. My gf and roommate tried it while I took down a California Classic, double hamburger, and large fry 😀
Tried it! And it was really good. Will have it again! And I'm not even a vegan lol 😁
I am not a vegetarian, but I will definitely try this. I do eat veggie burgers sometimes, I actually made mushroom burger patties earlier.
I tried it today and it was really good
Carl's Jr!!!! You out did yourself on this burger!!! It is SOoooooo good! Bless you!!
I'll give it a shot tomorrow.
Fooled my eyes but not my stomach...and taste buds...and nose...it wasn't that good will not be trying this again lol
You actually can't tell the difference! Still not as good as Morning Star Grillers but very tasty.
Beyond real taste and way beyond a reasonable price!
Just give me the regular Carl's jr. bacon fries and a big soda
Bet I could tell the difference.
So now we need a burger where the bread, lettuce tomato and condiments and whatnot are protein-based
omfg I should have tried that
I've had it, and you can definitely tell the difference but it still a delicious burger. Don't knock it till you try it!
It doesnt even look like a meat patty....
I'm wondering if the 100% plant based burger had any other addition additives in it for bindery and flavor?
Please don't validate the vegan lifestyle like this.
Every dream we have becomes burgers, and last night we dreamt of a wonderful oasis where all the plants are like charbroiled beef #BeyondxCarlsJr ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks! Now, vegan cheese & mayo, please.
Love your Beyond Meat burger soooo much. Thank you!! 🙏
Not at all something I care for, but its cool that CJ's offers it so vegans can have some of their delicious, char-broiled grub.
Thank you !
I tried this today and it was delicious! One of the best veggie burgers I’ve had!
Bring back your Turkey burgers :) Loved the jallapeano Turkey burgers
Love em !!
Cheese defeats the purpose, unless you are going to serve it with Vegan cheese!
GEE, I WISH THE BURGERS THAT THEY SHOW ON HERE AND THE TV, ACTUALLY WERE LIKE THESE THAT THEY SHOW!!!!!!
If it was the same price as a superstar id buy it. No reason it costs $3 more when its plant based
I had a dream where I could enjoy a western bacon cheeseburger at Hardee's. 26 years later it's still a dream.
Just had my second Double Beyond w cheese. I enjoy it so much I am now confident that for as long as Carl’s offers these, I will only get these patties vs red meat. Delicious, and they don’t weigh me down nearly as much.
U guys rock thank you!!!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🎉🎉🎉🎉😃😃😃😃
Too bad there’s cross contamination in restaurants while cooking and isn’t truly vegan!
Carl's Jr. you're my newest hero for doing this!!….thank you!!!!
Waco has this now!
Nope, If it doesn’t have meat then it goes straight into the trash.
Our new burger goes beyond. Beyond anything we’ve ever done. Beyond your wildest cravings. Yeah, it’s not what you expect…. #BeyondxCarlsJr ... See MoreSee Less
Carl's Jr., please get vegan mayo and cheez to put on our vegan burgers!!!!
Carl's Jr. Thank you so much for offering vegan options! Please consider offering vegan cheese such as Violife and vegan mayo like @JUST mayo.
I just ate at Carl’s Jr. for the first time in my life because of the beyond burger! THANK YOU, from vegans everywhere
Yesterday was my first time in a Carl's Jr in over 20 years. I went to try the Beyond Meat Beyond Famous Star. I was skeptical but wanted to give it a try. It's delicious!! Can't wait to be back. Thank you!
THANK YOU so much, Carl's Jr.!!! I never really ate there even before I was vegan, but you have a new loyal customer in me now! I stopped by right after work for the Beyond Meat famous star burger (super easy to make vegan without the cheese and mayo!) and some crisscut fries, and it was amazing 🤤😍👏🏻 I’ve had the beyond burger once before at Veggie Grill and loved it, but they don’t have a location very close to me. the fact that I can just swing by a fast food drive thru for a vegan burger now is amazing 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 thank you!!! 💜💜💜
As a vegan I am so thankful that y’all have offered us a true vegan option! Please for the love of all that is good, do not discontinue this ever!
Sincerely all vegans!
thank you Carl's Jr. for expanding your menu for vegetarians and vegans (please get vegan cheese!!!!)
you have changed the game!
So so thankful for this plant-based convenient option!!! Please please keep it on the menu! I keep recommending it because my experience was so good!
As a carnivore whose blood is mostly made of whiskey and bacon, I'm down to try it HOWEVER why on earth does it cost more than a double western bacon cheeseburger? I can get twice the beef patties plus bacon for less money? This should cost less since there's no meat, its veggies, and there's one patty vs 2 patties and bacon. Why? Whyyyyy? Everytime I'm gonna wanna try it I'll instead save money and get 2 and a half times the satisfaction. There's no reason the veggie patty should cost more than a freedom full of meat.
Awesome you have this! Usually I'm not very excited about non-meat stuff, but the beyond meat patty is yummy. Unfortunately, the guy at the register wasn't as excited. I said "it's great to see you have the beyond meat burger." And he just gave me a disgusting look. "You haven't had it yet?" I said. He says "no, I'm from Texas." Sad.
By far one of the best versions of the Beyond Burger I have ever had. I have not eat at Carl's Jr. since 2008, but you just became a regular stop for me. Thank you for having a Vegan/Vegetarian option. I hope this is just the beginning.
Eating it now, and it's so good. I'm so excited that they have this now.
Carl’s JR. well played, well played 👍
Thank you for providing a meatless option! My wife and i have had 4 orders in total so far 😂
Thank you so much for having the Beyond Burger!! :D My boyfriend and I have bought 5 already.
Beyond Meat ....
More hyper processed foods full of hyper processed ingredients like isolated proteins and industrial vegetable oils. Plus transparency of sourcing or methods of plant production really aren’t part of the zeitgeist. So there’s not the slightest concern for soil health or ecosystem restoration. Heck, the hyper-processed ingredients in this hyper-processed food comes from industrially farmed mono-cultures.
There also seems to be little awareness of how the plant ingredients are modified. Do consumers have a clue how the pea proteins were extracted or the canola oil pressed?. Nope not a clue . To isolate the plant protein, fats, phytates, oligiosacharides, fiber all have to be removed from the peas, wheat, soy beans, etc. There are a number of ways to remove all of these other components. Defatting may include hexane or other solvents to obtain the deffated meal which is then dehydrated to create defatted flour. Various processes ( eg. Alkali extraction–isoelectric precipitation, Salt extraction-dialysis, Micellar precipitation) have been developed to further extract/isolate the protein from the flour. These processes may involve additional chemical solutions (e.g. sodium hydroxide also known as caustic lye), centrifuging, freeze drying and or ultra filtration. These different processes create isolated proteins that vary in protein content as well as different properties that make them more or less useful for various food products.
Is this healthy? It certainly isn’t the same as going out to the garden and picking some fresh peas. Other ingredients are equally dubious. Look at the hyper processed Beyond Meat Burger’s hyper processed ingredients:
Pea protein isolate, expeller pressed canola oil, refined coconut oil, water, yeast extract, maltodextrin, natural flavors, gum arabic, sunflower oil, salt, succinic acid, acetic acid, non-gmo modified food starch, cellulose from bamboo, methylcellulose, potato starch, beet juice extract (for color), ascorbic acid (to maintain color), annatto extract (for color), citrus fruit extract (to maintain quality), vegetable glycerin.
Pea protein as already discussed is the primary ingredient The second most prevalent ingredient is “expeller pressed” canola oil. Canola seeds can be pressed several ways. They can be cold pressed or expeller pressed. The seed oil can also be extracted with hexane. Hexane extracts the most oil. Hexane has some issues (short term exposure can cause dizziness and nausea while chronic exposure can damage one’s nervous system) , and hexane extraction is a longer process as shown in this video “How is it made- Canola Oil.” Expeller pressing with heat extracts more oil than the cold pressed method done at a lower temperature. Heat is a bit problematic. Seed oils like canola, soy bean, corn and sunflower oil are all polyunsaturated fats. When polyunsaturated fats are heated during the extraction of the oil or during cooking the single bonds break and the oils form plant sterol oxidation product [POPS]. These POPS effect membrane functioning and cause inflammation, thus they have been connected to arteriosclerosis. The ninth listed ingredient, sunflower oil, has similar issues. From a health perspective, oxidized extracted oil, that’s also heated to cook really isn’t a better alternative to naturally occurring saturated fats that are more stable when exposed to heat.
Or, in other words, using heat extracted expeller pressed canola in a product that’s heated in a pan isn’t exactly an healthier alternative to the real product which, in this case, is beef. The reality is that plant based products like Beyond Meat are really chemistry sets. Food science at its most devious purporting to be “healthy.” Maltodextrin, derived from wheat or corn starch is another winner. This thickener which is a white powder formed via partial hydrolysis, a process using water and acid, to break down the starches. Maltodextrin can also spike blood sugar. Then there are the “natural flavors.” What could possibly be wrong with “natural flavors.” Plenty, of course as this article, What Are Natural Flavors, Really, notes:
“…Added flavoring, both natural and artificial, could contain anywhere from 50 to 100 ingredients. And all of the extra ingredients in flavors often aren’t as innocent as you’d hope they would be. The mixture will often have some solvent and preservatives — and that makes up 80 to 90 percent of the volume [of the flavoring]. In the end product, it’s a small amount, but it still has artificial ingredients…”
Okay so maybe this hyper processed lab concoction isn’t really healthier for you, but certainly it is better for the environment and kills less animals, right? No not really. Industrial scale pea production basically is ecocide and creates dead zones. So Beyond Meat isn't good for your health or for the environment
Yay!! Veganism is growing!!! Hopefully that's vegan cheese!!
I had one for dinner and then breakfast 🙈 it was that good! 😂
Its plant base.... and its not vegan! Cross contamination they only have one grill and cook it together with meat. Mayo and cheese is also not vegan. You might as well eat dead rotten flesh....
Delicious!! A little bit of sticker shock but definitely worth it for the experience. I'm hooked 👍
Sounds great but won’t go near any of your restaurants until you stop those horribly sexist commercials.
What prices are people paying? I think my city is way too high. It is $9.17 with tax for the burger alone. Others are saying it's around $7 where they live.
Yes, please tell us if this will be at all locations
Is this available in your southern restaurants as well?
