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!

I was impressed by the sign on the counter letting customers know that they were willing to serve their burgers without buns. "Low Carb" style.

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.

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.
