The original brand dates back to 1940’s Anaheim, California, where a lone ranger by the name of Carl Karcher ran Carl’s Drive-In Barbeque. It wasn’t until the mid 50s that he opened smaller, speedier versions of his beloved restaurant, naming them Carls Jr. Today they’re the 4th largest fast-food burger chain in the USA and have expanded into Mexico, Canada, Russia, Singapore, Vietnam and China. As I sat down in my “just a little bit fancier than McDonalds” booth, I pulled out my burger and was instantly reminded of the ad campaign Carls Jr used to run in the mid 90’s: “If it doesn’t get all over the place, it doesn’t belong in your face.” The Original Six Dollar Burger came with a charbroiled 100% Black Angus beef pattie, tomato, Spanish onion, lettuce, 2 slices of American cheese, pickles, mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise.

“Holy shit! Disgustingly awesome, I know. The photo really does it justice. There’s so much slide on this thing its ridiculous. Even when trying to take the shot I kept trying to prop the top of the bun back in place, but eventually realised this had to be seen for what it was, in all its monstrous glory. As for taste; it slams you in the face. This is mainly due to the inclusion (and abundance) of all 3 classic burger sauces, which I’m sure you’ll eventually notice running down your arm. This much sauce really feels like they’re trying to hide something. So, I tried the pattie on its own and there isn’t much to say; you’d pick it as being beef, but unsurprisingly it was dry and pretty average. It goes down hill from there. The burger turns even uglier when you start eating it, sliding around awkwardly like your first sexual experience. Afterwards you look down at the mess you’ve made, ashamed and not sure whether or not to tell your friends about it. As far as fast-food burger chains go, it does a great job at filling you up and tastes a little better/different than some of its competitors, but I think it’ll be a while before you have another one. Well, at least not until the next drunken outing or the eventual hangover that ensues.”
