The RedHot Mega Buffalo Chicken Hero Is the Food Coma You’re Dreaming Of

Sponsored by

Gaze upon the final word in hearty heroes: the Frank’s RedHot Mega Buffalo Chicken Hero combines all the best parts of a roadside diner lunch into six feet of cookout hedonism. This bad boy adds hot sauce to butter to make the original Anchor Bar buffalo sauce recipe from 1964... then slathers that goodness on a country mile of fried chicken and American cheese. Then -- only then -- does this sammich start getting warmed up.

Spread some buffalo mayo (made with more Frank’s RedHot Sauce) on that man-sized hero roll, then add some tomatoes, more cheese, onions and onion rings, top that with bacon, and bury it all in a wave of pickles.

You're not done yet. French fries suddenly add greasy goodness to this masterpiece, balanced by still more Frank’s RedHot, and then you sprinkle the whole affair with lettuce as a closing gesture. Don't let the party down by going anything less than full throttle hedonism here. You either make a hero, or you live long enough to become a villain.
