Californian burger chain Carl’s Jr. is famous for its signature Angus Thickburgers (they are legitimately thick) served in a range of mouth-watering combinations – we can’t go past the Original Thickburger though, which comes piled high with a thick beef patty, melted American cheese, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, lettuce, mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup. If you can’t cop the Thickburgers, go for the chargrilled range where you can keep it simple with the Famous Star with cheese (aka a cheeseburger) or lash out with the Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger with double beef and cheese, crispy bacon, fried onion rings and tangy barbecue sauce. There’s also a hefty range of fried and grilled chicken burgers, salads, fries (including the chilli-cheese variety) and plenty of sweet sides like super-thick ice-cream shakes and sundaes. Carl’s Jr. also serves a moreish breakfast spread featuring a series of gigantic bacon and egg burgers, sausage and egg burgers, and breakfast platters brimming with pancakes, scrambled eggs, hash rounds, bacon (or saus), all lovingly drizzled with syrup.
