  1. Carl’s Jr has mostly just been disappointing the whole year for me. Outside of El Diablo I haven’t really seen anything that good come out, and even then it was okay. Mostly they’ve just been doing their all-natural thing, or more bacon, or just breakfast shit. I want some good burgers here, not breakfast promotions.

  2. I tried one this evening, the 1/3 lb version. I thought it was very good. I seldom eat fast food and can’t remember last time I stopped at a Hardee’s, but I was hungry and pulled in. I am glad the young lady behind the counter asked if I wanted to try it. I would buy it again, for sure.

  3. I had one tonight/last night and it was pretty good. It really isn’t a huge change from some of their other burgers like the Jalapeno burger or the El Diablo, they all feature pepper jack cheese (one of the few cheeses I like) and some sort of spicy toppings.

    One complaint is this one the bun did not hold up well at all. I think the iceberg lettuce didn’t add much to the burger. While Carl’s has some of the best burgers out there, they always seem to use standard crap lettuce while places like McDonald’s try better quality lettuce rather than just iceberg.

    The price is a bit high. Carl’s Jr tends to be almost restaurnt-level for its prices. A burger fries and drink can set you back $12 or so if you get a half pound combo, which is pretty much what you’d pay at a place like Denny’s or IHOP… a sit down restaurant. But the quality of Carl’s is better than other places like Jack in the box.
