Carl's junior Informative - Not Worth Getting The Burritos

Review by 54118 on 2009-02-20
So Today I decided to drop by Carl's junior for lunch. I saw they had a new item on the menu Burritos, I decided to try them out, I told the cashier I want one burrito to go. He looked at me strange and said they only come in 3 or 6.

I thought I surely can't eat 3 burritos by myself so I insisted that he ring me up for one. he then went to ask the manager she came up and said it would be ok. came up to 1.40 I gave the guy a buck and dug in my pockets for some change.

I waited patently till they called my number, then when I got my burrito I figured out why they want you to buy them in bulk. the darn things are the size of a egg roll. and it tasted mediocre at best. Not worth getting

Dude, it is the age of DEFLATION for now. The burger buddies and all of this krap is a well planned out sales plan for "fiscally challeged" FF customers! What were you expecting a burrito the size of some local taco joint? *you got played*

LOL wally. Sorry to laugh but I would have liked to see your expression... way cute (and of course, VH)!

I think there's kind of a craze of mini foods right now...

I'll stick to buying there overpriced burgers. You can buy those same burrito’s at your local grocery store nuke them and they would still taste better then Carl juniors version

I am not sure if they are the same, but Carls Jr. use to sell those frozen burritos a very long time ago. and they were gross back then, too. From your comparison to the grocery store frozen burritos I am sure they are the same ones from before. Thanks for warning us that they are back...they should have stayed GONE! I will definitley avoid them. YUCK!

Is your Carls part Green Burrito? GB used to have this burrito called a 'wet red' damm those things were tasty..

We have the combo Carls Jr. / Green Burrito's down here. Those mini-egg roll sized burritos were available even at the Carls Jr. only stores. The 'wet' burritos are good...but anything smothered in enchilada sauce and cheese is good (although not good for your). :)

A 'wet red'? Sounds like jailhouse lingo.

lol...could be,but it was also a great burrito covered in red (i assume) enchilada sauce.

Wally, good review. I gave up on Carl's Jr. when they started running their disgusting TV ads a few years ago. One of only a few companies that their advertising actually keeps you from buying from them.

I've never heard of this place.. it must be a strictly west coast thing..?

Carl's Jr. is an American fast-food restaurant chain, located mostly in the Western United States and West Coast regions. It is also in the process of expanding into Canada, Mexico, and China. It was founded in 1941 by Carl N. Karcher, and is owned by CKE Restaurants, Inc. Along with its sibling restaurant chain Hardee's.

It bought the Green Buritto chain some time ago.

A place called Rigoberto's, in Casa Grande, AZ has a breakfast burrito that must weigh in at just over a pound. Just because they keep getting raided by ICE, doesn't alter the fact that the burrito is usually sold one at a time, and you are lucky if you can finish it.

There is an original Green Burrito.Its an authentic Mexican restaurant up towards La Puente.On Hacienda up by the 60 FWY...None of what you see on the CJ's GB menu is on their menu...Just another GREAT place in Southern California for Mexican food....

Crazy that Carls started out as a hot dog stand in the 40's

Wally, I'm with Boki. I'd loved to have seen the expression on your face when you got your mouth watering order. I think I'd like to try Ruby Tuesday's offering of three mini burgers. The advantage here is that each is of a different variety. Probably if you find a favorite in your order, you'll go back for the regular sized one. I wish packaged food came in assorted varieties, bread in particular. By the time I get through a whole loaf, I'm tired of it. I know you can put it in the freezer--but mine is filled with odds and ends of stuff like that.
