My to do list was growing. With a daughter getting married in two weeks, the ten year old’s 11th birthday happening over the weekend, finals week, and a recent auto accident that had left me with a (minor) back injury and whiplash, I was overwhelmed and reaching Pam Panic mode. When my son walked in and asked me, “What are we having for dinner tonight, Mom?” I made a snap decision and put the food I had planned to prepare back into the fridge. “We’re using this gift card I received to try the new Krystal Stackers.” My son, who had not been thrilled over the evening’s menu, hurried off to get his shoes, mumbling, “Good!” under his breath.
Eyeing their motto, “You dreamed it. We did it.” upon arrival, I was greeted with the option of four new Stackers. They’re a twist on the traditional Krystal, including two of the 100% percent grilled beef patties, instead of the usual one in the classic Krystals. Our choices included the Deluxe Stacker,two patties and two slices of cheese, topped with lettuce, tomato and mayo, the Cheese stacker, two patties and two slices of cheese, the Traditionalist, a regular Krystal with double the meat, and the Bacon Cheese Stacker, including two patties, two pieces of cheese and crispy bacon. I opted for the limited time Stacker meal, which allowed me to mix and match two stackers of my choice, along with an order of fries and a soft drink. I chose a Bacon Cheese Stacker and a Cheese Stacker and “prompted” the rest of the family to try the other burgers. They ignored my advice, with the exception of one Traditionalist burger, and went with their favorites.
I’ve always been a fan of the original Krystals because of their size. I liked the thinner meat patty topped with grilled onions, mustard and pickles and placed in a steamed bun. As a child, I would slowly savor my Krystal, pulling off the steamy parts of the bun and taking small bites until I had eaten it all. The Krystal Stackers remind me of a “grown up” Krystal, perfect for those with bigger appetites or who want more toppings.
