Carl’s Jr. Claims First QSR ‘Natural’ Burger

Carl’s Jr. will introduce what it says is the first “all-natural, no hormones, no antibiotics, n steroids, grass-fed, free-range beef patty” from any major quick-service chain.

Ag Economist Sees Record Beef Prices Ahead

Higher food prices seem a certain result of the drought that has parched about one-third of the U.S. How high prices might go, which proteins will see the sharpest gains and when operators and consumers will feel the impact are the key questions, and there are disagreements and conflicting forecasts.

Tom Galis Believes Simplicity, Quality Make a Goodburger

What Bon App Missed: 10 REALLY New Burger Joints

I won’t quibble with any of Bon Appétit’s choices for its “Top 10 Best New Burger Spots.” All 10 look great, and DMK Burger Bar is heavenly. But eight of the 10 opened in 2009. This week we are halfway through 2010, so how can Umami Burger, which opened in February 2009, still be considered “new”?  Yes, Minetta Tavern’s […]
