April 13th, 2013. Hello, Carl’s Jr. Vancouver!
Hello, Carl’s Jr. has finally landed in Vancouver! All those tantalizing commercials we get up here at 2am in the morning and can’t hop into the car to get, our friends bragging about how they had Carl’s Jr. instead of McDonalds on their trip to Seattle. Yeah, you know what? Now it’s here!
Lucky, me, when I mentioned that I’d heard there was one that opened in Vancouver Jeff immediately threw his chip in and was up for a burger run. Yay, Finnish Carpenter Jeff!
We made plans to meet up over the weekend at Carl’s Jr. to eat eat eat!
I wanted to go full on and went for the Western Bacon Thickburger. Charbroiled burger with bacon, melted American cheese, crispy onion rings and onion rings. Ahhhhh….so much burger! And because I wanna, a side of Yam Fries 🙂
I think we could all agree that while the burgers were a handful and we were stuffed beyond anything at the end of it it’s just not the same. For some odd reason it’s just not the same as when we get it in the States. The quality seemed off, the burgers seemed sloppy, and the yam fries were dismal. Thin, dry and overcooked.
Oh well, the burgers weren’t super amazing, but at least we had fun! Better luck next time?
