Hardee’s has two locations in Chapel Hill: 1800 Fordham Blvd and 6116 Farrington Rd. The Farrington Rd. location is off of Highway 54 at the light right before you merge onto I-40 East at Exit 273. I remembered I heard that Hardee’s had a 1/3 Low Carb Thickburger, so I thought it was time I tried it. The low carb burger is made from 100% Black Angus beef and has everything that a “regular” burger does minus the bun.
I had not tried fast-food except for a few times since I was diagnosed with celiac disease almost three years ago. I could not believe how good the Low Carb Thickburger was! One burger is around $3.50 which is more than most fast-food burgers but is definitely worth it.
You can view the PDF concerning allergen information here. It was updated January 26, 2009.
I did not think to see if the French fries were cooked in a dedicated fryer, but I will have to ask next time I go. After I got home I realized that the allergen menu indicates that the ice cream minus cookie dough and cookies and cream is gluten free. That’s another thing I will have to look into soon. If you happen to gain any insight into either of those things, let me know!
The 1/3 Low Carb Thickburger is a great alternative to the usually pricey gluten free food!
