Two Popular Burger Chains Are Now Serving This New Meaty Menu

And it's good news for meat lovers of all stripes.

Almost everyone loves a good burger. You, your dad, your best friend, your boss, and maybe even your significant other. Do you think dinosaurs love a good burger? Well, according to Universal Pictures, the studio behind the latest and final installment in the Jurassic World franchise, they sure do.

Universal is partnering with sister chains Carl's Jr. and Hardee's to offer some dino-tastic new menu items in anticipation of the film Jurassic World Dominion coming on June 10. The Primal Menu, which is available now, features extra-meaty menu items—for both carnivores and herbivores—that will be sold nationwide through July 6.

"Jurassic World is such an iconic franchise, just like our menus, that we wanted to make sure we were doing the films justice and pulled a lot of inspiration from them when we were creating these innovative menu items," said Owen Klein, vice president of global culinary innovation of CKE Restaurants. "The culinary team had a lot of fun with this and when consumers bite into these big, meaty items, we want them to be instantly transported to the world of Jurassic."

The Primal Menu features slow-cooked prime rib meat in a Primal Angus Thickburger, Primal Burrito, and Primal Biscuit with Fried Egg for a velociraptor-worthy breakfast and is currently being served at both chains.

At Carl's Jr. only, there are two options for herbivores: a Beyond Wraptor Burger and a Double Beyond Wraptor Burger. Both chains will also be debuting an Amber BBQ Sauce, made to resemble the iconic amber resin from the Jurassic World films.

If eating like your favorite (or most feared) dinosaur isn't enough, then you can head to Los Angeles and Nashville for a "Jurassic World Dino Takeover." The brands will be decking out two Carl's Jr. and Hardee's locations (one in each city) in full-on Jurassic World decor so that fans can feel like they're actually at Jurassic Park. Sources say that they may even host a T.rex at the Los Angeles location, so keep an eye on your burger (and maybe your loved ones, too).

The partnership is so big (like Gigantosaurus-sized), that some international locations in the Middle East and Canada will be offering their own Primal Menu as well.
