  1. Had this tonight and it was SO GOOD!! I liked it more than a lot of other veggie burgers I’ve had. And that’s saying a lot, because as I am vegetarian, I’ve had quite a few. Opted for no onion or tomato but the cheese, lettuce, special sauce, and pickles were a great complement! I honestly hope Carl’s Jr. keeps this for some time. I want to eat it more often!

  2. I was excited to try it, but at my local location, they wanted $8.49 for the sandwich. I didn’t feel it was worth it at the price point.
