Carl's Jr./Hardee's is rolling out a new ad campaign that drops the sexy women and focuses on the food. To mark the transition, the new character "Carl Hardee Sr." takes back over from his son, "Junior," ...

The insanity that is Carl's Jr. menu prices led me to try out the advertised $4 Real Deal. This is what we at Fast Food Source refer to not as a combo but rather a "bundle". The Wendy's 4 for $4 and ...
Let's take a quick look at the way Carl's Jr. coupons have evolved over the course of 2016. Recall that at the beginning of last year I was lamenting the fact that these coupons had gone from 2-for-1 ...

They advertise the Grand Mac as requiring two hands and that was truth in advertising. The latest in the new Mac trifecta (along with the regular Big Mac and new Mac Jr. sandwiches) is nothing short ...

Last Thursday, McDonald's did a one-day promotion giving away bottles of Special Sauce. The event was limited to 10,000 bottles nationwide. With just 150 bottles at one restaurant near my home in Phoenix, ...
As advertised on the Carl's Jr. website, the California Classic seems to be an unapologetic knock-off of the famous In-n-Out Double Double. Consider the assembly: two beef patties, two slices of American ...
Here's a showdown of two big fast food chicken sandwiches from Carl's Jr: The Big Chicken Fillet Sandwich and the Chicken Club Sandwich. Right off the bat, you can tell that the Big Chicken Fillet ...
Well, don't those look pretty? Who wouldn't want some crispy fries drenched in melted cheese and bacon sprinkles? That's what I thought, so I ordered some as an upgrade to my combo just to give them ...

Here are some pics from a recent trip to Cologne, Germany:
Continuing the grand experiment to look at a single fast food menu item coupon price over the course of an entire year, we have another one from Carl's Jr. This time we'll look at their core sandwich, ...
At the beginning of 2015 I thought it might be an interesting experiment to collect a year's worth of those fast food coupons that appear regularly in the mail. In my neighborhood, the two most frequent ...
The Carl's Jr. Western Bacon Cheeseburger (or as I call it, the WBC) is a staple for me. Super straightforward in its design, the sandwich is always satisfying and strikes the perfect balance in the ...
At first I thought this was a joke. And maybe it's nothing more than a clever way to grab the spotlight. Nevertheless, Burger King appears to be proposing that they team up with McDonald's to offer a special ...

I know it's late getting this posted, but I've been meaning to share a clever fast food promotion at McDonald's for the movie tie-in with Minions. Look at the menu board above. Note, the minion characters ...

Here's a cool looking Carl's Jr here in Arizona across the street from this year's Super Bowl. I don't think this is anything more than an abberation and don't expect these to be popping up all over your ...
I am sure this will sell more burgers, but this ad seems derivative. The "sexy girl eating a messy burger" thing has been played out. 4WTA_8waxTo

Carl's Jr. is advertising the "first all-natural burger... among major fast food chains." As the poster above promotes, this fast food burger comes with antibiotic-free, hormone-free, and steroid-free ...

Way back in 2009, I said "time would tell" whether or not the Big Carl at Carl's Jr. could survive on the menu next to all of the other jumbo burgers. Well, five years later, the Big Carl is still there ...
While driving between Phoenix and Los Angeles, I often stop to refuel my mind and soul at Carl's Jr. in Quartzite.  I see that Tesla Motors has made a deal with local franchisees of fast food and hotels ...

Updated menu for Carl's Jr. with new zoom-able images for better clarity.  Enjoy!
Even the name is a mouthful.  The Carl's Jr. Western Bacon Six Dollar Thickburger is a gloriously bulked-up version of the standard WBC.  Instead of the Famous Star-sized patty, the SDT version of the ...
I was admiring the new Carl's Jr. commercial promoting their fresh-baked hamburger buns, not for the sexy girls and the pun on the word "buns" but for the subtle shift in product positioning that seems ...

Nothing special about this order, but this Big Mac arrived PACKED.  Overflowing with toppings, actually.  It's almost like it went through the assembly process twice.  No double meat though.  This is ...

Here are some pics of the menu from Carl's Jr. in Panama.  They are a bit grainy, but the key message is there is virtually no difference between this and a U.S. restaurant.  Panama's currency is US ...
Admittedly, when I go to visit my friend the Happy Star, I often choose from one of three staples:  The Western Bacon Cheeseburger, the Famous Star, or the best dang chicken sandwich - the Charbroiled ...

Ahh, Lent.  The Catholic season leading up to Easter is a time when many fast from eating meat on Fridays, a tradition that drove the creation of the original McDonald's Filet-O-Fish, by the way.  Now ...

What kind of sandwich is this? No, it's not a new menu item.  It's a Big Mac on a Quarter Pounder bun.  My wife likes getting the Big Mac without the center slice of bread.  That is a royal pain ...

Possibly in response to McDonald's recent incursion on Carl's Six Dollar Angus turf with the Third Pound Angus burgers, Carl's Jr. debuts the new Big Carl. And if you think this two beef patty, two che ...
