Peter, Dan, we are gonna have to do a Carl's Jr. run one of these days. I am a fan of the Western BACON (that's right) Cheeseburger.

Though if I want to spend more money, I will go to Fuddruckers.

That is such a horrible name...

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. are the same company now. I wish they would just serve the same food.
Hardees.com says the nearest Hardees are in Wyoming and Montana. I heard there used to be some in Salt Lake years ago but not this decade.

I don't necessarily have anything against Carl's, but I have to say, if you're going to have a lunch get-together for burgers, why not go to Five Guys? Those Cajun fries are wonderful, and the burgers were really good too.

I didn't end up trying Five Guys in CA before leaving. I'll have to try it out here.

Just tried Five Guys for the first time yesterday.  Verdict:  its pretty good.  I got the bacon cheeseburger with normal fries.  BTW the regular sized fries were more than enough for one person.  I was satisfied with the whole experience, and love that they use fresh cut potatoes from Idaho for their fries.

I've never seen a Hardee's in Montana before, and I've lived here five years. I've seen Carl's Jr.'s there, though.

I worked at Hardee's in Ogden from 1994-1996, till I finished school, got a job, and moved.
The same guy owned all the Hardees in Utah 20 some stores I think and 2 or so in Idaho. He sold them
all in 1997 or 1998. The one in ogden became a Buger King.
Any way My favotie bugers here in AZ:
Fudrukers
In and Out
Whataburger
Carls Jr.

There are a bunch of seniors at my school who go to Five Guys every Thursday (or something like that).

I went to Five Guys a couple weeks ago. I was kinda underwhelmed. I paid $9 for a pretty good burger and some crappy fries. If I ever go again, I'm skipping the fries for sure. The burger (double stacked it turns out) was enough food without them.

You didn't like the fries? I'm...astonished.

Well, maybe the Cajun fries are better. I didn't see them on the menu.

The thing about me and fries is that I don't like the plain sorts. McDonald's vaunted fries make me yawn. Give me Arby's curly fries, or Red Robin steak fries. I'd thought that (based on this forum) maybe Five Guys would have some magic process to make plain fries somehow less than ordinary, and I went away disappointed.

I used to love Whataburger but they shut down in Cali.  I remember being 8 or 9 and going there with my dad to get a Whataburger (7" in diameter with a bun to match) with cheese and a whole pickled Jalapenio the size of my hand.  Saturday tradition.
