Roadside Distraction: Carl’s Jr. in Rockwall, Texas.
On the way back from my relaxing weekend in East Texas, I could not resist the temptation to stop off at I-30 exit 70 and blog about Carl's Jr.
I just never find myself near one of the 3 local outlets (all are franchises located in Love's Travel Stops). I was full from a healthy (ahem) brunch – but had to sample some Carl's fare – for the good of the blog.
More after the jump:
You always crave what you can't have – this menu is refreshing just 'cause it's different. Above is the classic Six Dollar Burger ($4.79). I like it – nice char flavor, decent veggies, mustard, mayo & ketchup.
Next: the Guacamole Bacon Six Dollar Burger! This was REALLY good – Spicy Guac and a Sante Fe Sauce with real kick made me wish we had some of these in town. Got some Natural Cut Fries and the CrissCut variety. All in all, it's not quite as I remember the experience on the West Coast… but different from our local chains and satisfying. Of course, I couldn't eat all this – had a couple bites of eat and stuck the bag in the trunk for the rest of the trip home… the result was less than desirable! But, that was a fun diversion.
