Used to love Carl's Jr. when I lived on the west coast. I had been really missing the Western Bacon Cheesburger. It was as good as ever!

The drive thru was surprisingly fast for a family bag of food, however my turkey burger was way over-sauced (sloppy) and a couple bites didn't taste fresh.

If given a choice where I have to choose a fast food place because of time, I go here. Western Bacon cheeseburger is my choice.

Carl's should be a pretty well known option in the junk food restaurant world. There maybe differentiation from one location to the next but in general fast food chains worship consistency.

For a fast food place their food is surprising healthy and tasty. I have tried sweet potato fries in a number of places and this has got to be the best. I also had their turkey burger which was quite tastly and filling

I don't usually go to fast food places, but when I do, Carl's Jr. is my choice. I've enjoyed their Western Cheeseburgers for many a moon.
