Terry Bradshaw Ranch Angus Burgers Review

When the opportunity presented itself to try the Bradshaw Ranch Burgers, I jumped at it. Holten, who makes my favorite frozen burger on the market (add Meat District to that list), produces these fellas.

The Bradshaw in the name is NFL legend, Terry Bradshaw. Three Angus burger varieties (beef, cheddar & bacon, and cheddar, bacon & garlic) are available in one-third or quarter-pound patties.

Per the instructions, the burgers were kept frozen until we were ready to grill. They look identical to many of the frozen burger patties I’ve eaten over the years with the ridges.

I wondered why frozen patties have these markings on only one side for a long time. It’s to prevent the burger from bulging up and to make for even cooking.

I doubted these burgers would look good once the flames took hold, but I was wrong. Instead, these frozen patties looked mighty fine.

Then I threw on a slice of American cheese and slid them into a soft squishy Martin’s potato bun. The burger looked great and had my mouth watering.

Squeezing & Tasting Burgers

Many folks swear by the squeeze test to see how juicy the burger comes out. Check out the picture below, and it says it all.

By the way, if you overcook your burgers to hell, I wouldn’t be expecting these kinds of results. I like to eat my fresh beef burger Medium, but when cooking frozen patties, I find that Medium Well is the sweet spot.

The regular burger was tops in my book, then the cheddar & bacon, followed by the garlic fellow. My tastes are generally classic, and I like to steer clear of anything that can be gimmicky unless they deliver the goods.

My friends preferred the cheddar cheese, bacon & garlic burger over the others. And now I leave the decision in your hands to try all three Bradshaw Ranch Burgers and tell me which one you prefer.

If you’re looking for these beef babies, a quick search on their website shows that Fresco y Mas, Publix, Winn Dixie, and even GFS carry the Bradshaw Ranch Burgers near me.

Bradshaw Recipes

Five Bradshaw Ranch recipes were attached to the press release, so I’ve included them below. Do whatever your heart desires with them, and if you do make them, let me know how it went.

Bradshaw Bourbon BBQ Sauce

  • 1-gallon ketchup
  • 2 cups rice vinegar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups Bradshaw bourbon
  • 1/2 Worcestershire
  • One large onion chopped
  • 1.5 tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp. Cayenne
  • 1/2 tbsp. Ground clove
  • 1 tbsp. Smoked paprika
  • Three bay leaves


  1. Sweat onions until translucent, add bourbon and burn off the alcohol.
  2. Add brown sugar with reaming spices and vinegar.
  3. Cook down by a 3rd about 7 minutes on medium-high heat.
  4. Add ketchup and salt and pepper.
  5. Cook on medium heat for about 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. Let cool and blend.

Bradshaw Ranch Patty Melt

  • 1 thick and juicy patty per person. I recommend the bacon cheddar
  • Bradshaw bourbon BBQ sauce
  • Sliced white onions
  • Sliced smoked cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • Sourdough bread
  • Bacon
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat grill or pan to 350 degrees.
  2. Season the frozen Bradshaw ranch thick and juicy patty with salt and pepper. 
  3. Place patty directly from the freezer onto pan or gill.
  4. In a separate Sauté pan, cook bacon to desired crispiness, remove bacon when done, and do not discard bacon fat.
  5. Cook sliced white onion with salt and pepper in the same pan as the bacon, using the fat as oil. Cook onions until translucent.
  6. Flip burgers at 5 minutes, place onions directly on top of the patty and then add your sliced cheese to cover the onions.
  7. Slather two pieces of sourdough bread with mayo (one side only).
  8. Place mayo side down on your sauté pan; this will create a nice golden crispy toast
  9. now add another slice of cheese to one side of the bread as if you were making a grilled cheese sandwich.
  10. Once the cheese is melted, the burger is cooked to 165 degrees, about 4 minutes after flipping.
  11. Place bacon on the side of bread with cheese on it.
  12. Place patty on top of the bacon, and top with your other piece of bread.
  13. Cut in half and serve with dill pickles and a side of BBQ sauce for dipping.

  1. I am a fan of Terry since I was 12, I also was at the hall of fame for his induction. In my opinion greatest QB ever! Just bought the burgers and they are the best. I don’t know if Terry will ever see this, but I love you and think that you and your family are wonderful.

  2. Just purchased my first Bradshaw burgers on a lark. At 77, I’m not supposed to eat this kind of food but when I saw 2 pounds of gourmet Angus patties, I took a chance to treat myself. Got the cheese and garlic ones and pan-fried them. Being eager to taste my new “treat”, I blotted it and tossed it on a bun. Well I ended up devouring the whole burger before even thinking of dressing it or touching the side dishes! I’m a Buckeye & Dog Pound fan, but my hat is off to you Mr. Bradshaw!!

  3. The Bradshaw burger is the worst that I have ever had. Very fatty and did not taste like a good angus burger. Was totally disgusted with my bad burger and will never buy again.

  4. Bought these on a whim, I didnt like ANY other frozen burgers I have tried…UNTIL THESE! They hold their shape and are indeed juicy, had to cook a little longer until the middle cooked, the taste was awesome! These will be a mainstay in my freezer from here on out, I’ll try the beef but think I’ll prefer the garlic cheese and butter ones. Why go uptown and pay 9 bucks for a burger that isnt no where NEAR as good? I’ll pay $9 for SIX “Bradshaw Burgers” and be happy…if you havent tried them yet, pay no attention to the negative crap on here…TRY THEM FOR YOURSELF! Thanks, Terry!

  5. Terry’s burgers are delicious!! I was very happy how great they were. I made them for my son, he ate 2!! I gave 3 to my 96yo friend (she is very picky!) She loved them!!! WOW!! Thank yinz soooooo much for a delicious !!!!

  6. We purchase Bradshaw Burgers at Publix in Port Wentworth, Ga. We have been grilling these burgers for over a year. No other burger can come close to taste and texture. They grill perfect ever time. As a long time Steelers fan, the burgers are great just like Terry was at QB. Thanks for a quality product!

  7. I’m 71 years old and the T. Bradshaw burger is the best burger I have ever had. It is 100% better than all the big boys out there. I would crawl 100 miles to eat a Bradshaw burger. Please hurry and get them to the stores.
    Thank You, Terry

  8. I just want to say these are the best burgers ever l. my fiancé and I have been grilling these burgers for the last three or 4 Months Way Way better than that is Bubba burgers or any other fries burger I don’t understand why anybody would have anything to say about these hamburgers. They are the best of the best thank you Terry Bradshaw for making these delicious burgers. They are absolutely awesome.

  9. Bought for my boyfriend, they are worse than cafeteria burgers from grade school! Gross texture no meat taste, wasted money.

  10. I’ve eaten THOUSANDS of burgers in my lifetime. The only burger that was better than Terry’s was in Hawaii. Bubba’s burgers. And while it’s not possible to go there for a burger at the drop of a cowboy hat. Terry’s is a VERY close second. And I can get them where I live anytime. Hall of Fame level burgers for sure.

  11. Terry, We absolutely love these burgers. I don’t understand all the negative comments. We have eaten them three times this week. The flavor is amazing. I will be going back to the store tomorrow and buy lots more. I have been telling all my friends about them. They will be buying your amazing hamburgers for sure.

  12. The Bradshaw burgers are hands down the absolute best frozen burgers I’ve ever had! The majority of frozen burgers shrink down to a slider size. These burgers retain their size, are juicy, and so delicious! Just had to give a shout out to the best! For those with complaints, it must be retailer related.

    • Agreed! And now my Publix has stopped carrying them, and I can’t find them near me – I really want Bradshaw Burgers.

  13. I bought two boxes of this product: 1/3 beef patties cheddar cheese, garlic and butter burgers for the first time yesterday at Publix. When I opened the package the patties appeared to be freezer burned but I confirmed it when I could not separate the patties with a steak knife. I cooked two anyway since I bought them and I didn’t want my money to go to waste. They were horrible! We threw away the rest of the box because they still were to hard to separate after running cold water over them. I happened to see the guarantee on the box and decided to take you up on your offer….We guarantee our product to the highest standard. If you are not completely satisfied we will refund your money. I am voicing my dissatisfaction. I will never purchase nor refer this product to anyone.

  14. Terry, These Burgers are the Very Best Hamburgers I Ever Ate!!! I don’t normally by boxed burgers , because they always have a ugly after taste, But your Burgers are MAGNIFICO!!!

  15. Lost a ton of money on you i’ m a cowboy’s fan but your burgers are the best burgers I ever ate. Success in the future, you are the best!!!

  16. I want a refund of 12.00 these are not edible.I bought at the May River Publix 11.99 plus tax, these are the worse burgers ever upc 7982110079 4 date 11 10 23

  17. I bought a package of the Cheddar Cheese Garlic Burgers. They came out of the package grey and it just got worse from there. As I cooked the burgers the greyish color stayed…seems the process drained any of the meat flavor out. The butter and cheddar were the only things keeping it moist. I tasted it and couldn’t find a bit of meat flavor…just garlic. I had to look at the package to make sure there was any beef in it. My stubbornness made me try to eat it anyway but halfway through I had to give up. My recommendation is DO NO WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT. Buy fresh meat or find a quality frozen burger. This is not it!

  18. Love these burgers! My husband and I are just thrilled we found these! After work neither of us want to cook but it’s so fast and they are just as good as if I made my own pattys. Great price as well! Thank you!

  19. Purchased Bradshaw garlic ranch ,butter beef patties box looks great actual burger not so much. Sorry Terry go back to playing football.

  20. My daughter gave me a case of burgers to try. I like the burgers they have a good taste. The only problem i ran into was that my wife found a metal twist tie in her burger and she refused to eat any more from that case so it was disposed of. Im pretty sure it was just an accident during production. I had taken a picture of the information on the box in case you have other issues
