Carl's Jr Yummy 99 cent Hamburger

Wonderful experience at the Carl's I visitied......was on my way to the 2009 Homeless Count as a volunteer and stopped at the Carl's in Temple City before a long night out. Ordered the 99 cent burger and got something approaching nirvana.

I knew it would be a long night and I had water and snack bars with me but wanted something hot before I left, wasn't worrying about healthy food but wanted something light. I had McDonald's and Wendy's and Burger Kings 99 cent burgers in mind ......that is what I expected, little meat to speak off, sort of a brown spot on the bun.

Ha Ha on me...........what I received for my 99 cents plus tax was a hot steaming off the grill hamburger, real meat, with onions, pickles, mustard, ketchup and can you believe it, the bun was a sesame bun grilled on both sides so it was hot , with grill marks thank you very much, and the hamburger was so big it actually overlapped the bun.

What a shock to my system. The meat was actually flavorful. I ate it with plastic fork and knife (no, no one looked at me strangely) and I left the restaurant feeling guilty for my penurious good fortune.

I've boycotted Carl's since that dreadful blond Hilton person showed her whatever on national TV .......but gee whiz, I may forgive Carl's for their errant behavior when their 99 cent burger tastes this good.
