Rocky Mount-based Boddie-Noell Enterprises, the Hardee's restaurant franchisee for the region, has begun offering turkey burgers as a counterpoint to its large hamburgers. That makes the chain the first among the fast-food hamburger restaurants to add turkey burgers to its menu.

This is GREAT news for those of us that don't eat beef. However, Hardee's is not the first turkey burger. Jack in the Box had the "Turkey Jack" for a limited time not too long ago.

I decided to give it a try the other day: pretty good. I just had regular grill turkey burger will give the BBQ ranch a try the next time.

Because of the turkey burger ads on TV, I will not be trying a turkey burger and seriously reconsidering any Hardee's purchase..

i don't mind ground turkey, i cook turkey burgers on a skillet at home from time to time... so i tried one.

i had trouble finishing it. it tastes like it is pumped with some kind of weird soy-sodium product, and topped with microwaved mushroom cheese-gravy, which made me want to vomit. It has too many calories and too much grease to be 'healthy', and it doesn't taste good enough to be a rare indulgence.

Yeah I tried it too this past Friday at the Hardee's on Sunset in Charlotte. It wasn't good at all. My Turkey burgers that I grill myself (using 85% lean Food Lion ground turkey) are MUCH better. I ended up getting a BBQ grilled chicken at the Cook Out on Sunset instead after only a few bites. I really wish Jack in the Box brings back the "Turkey Jack". That burger was the real deal!!!

Turkey burgers are way too salty for me.
I dunno what they do to them in restaurants. I can use ground turkey at home and it's not so salty.

Weird.
