Perhaps the worst of all burger places we have featured. The so called "Six Dollar Burger" is priced less, but not worth the bargain. The burger is meaty, but extremely dry. The fries are limp and without any taste. Grade D quality. The only good thing we experienced was the short wait for the meal. Oh, the servers were fine, but we’ll take a pass on repeat visit until word surfaces that the quality of meat and potatoes is upgraded. The sister version of Carl’s Jr. (Hardee’s) is a bit better, but you’ll have to travel to the Deep South to visit one.
