Denny’s Rock Star Menu, Mach II: Are Your Insides Ready For Something Called The “Hooburrito”?

noah | October 28, 2008 3:00 am

In its continuing effort to welcome the huddled masses yearning to get out of their houses between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., Denny’s has brought a few new items to its Rockstar Menu, in which touring bands decide to out-gross each other with the help of the restaurant chain’s short-order cooks around the country. Last time out, America’s suburban insomniacs were treated to really sweet milkshakes, heart-shaped pancakes, chipped beef on toast, and french fries that had been subjected to a bacon cheeseburger circle pit. What mouth-watering offerings await you tonight? The four answers–courtesy of Taking Back Sunday, Boys Like Girls, Katy Perry, and Hoobastank–after the jump. (And no, I’m not making any of them up to “trick” you.)

First, the offerings from the Rock Star Menu’s grizzled (but not gristle-filled!) veterans Taking Back Sunday:

Taking Back Sunday’s Melty Grilled Chicken and Sausage Quesadilla (Taking Back Sunday): Last time, they gave you fries with the makings of a bacon cheeseburger all over them; this time, it’s a quesadilla with chicken and sausage, as well as American cheese (?!), peppers, onions, pico de gallo, and something called “cilantro-lime ranch sauce.”

And now the newbies. Remember the Boys Like Girls-themed egg dish that was threatened last time? Well, it’s here!

The Great Eggsteak (Boys Like Girls): A hot roast beef sandwich with peppers, onions, spicy mayo, and pepper jack sounds great, doesn’t it? Sure, it does… until you add scrambled eggs. Blech.

The Hot N Cold Cherry Chocolate Cappuccino (Katy Perry): Vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, french vanilla cappuccino, and cherries, including one on top of some whipped cream. Unfortunately, the ice cream can’t be swapped out for yogurt with active cultures.

The Hooburrito (Hoobastank, duh): It’s a burrito with “crispy” (read: fried) chicken strips, fried onion straws, and barbecue sauce. As well as pepper jack cheese and cheese sauce in the burrito–and more cheese sauce on the side. There’s also a side of ranch. Which figures.
