Carl's Jr Brisbane Is Open For Business

BIG, DIRTY & CHEESY- America's biggest burger chain has officially landed in Brisbane.

Carl's Jr and their chargrilled thick burgers will now call the Brisbane airport domestic terminal home- and no, you don't need to book a flight to enjoy their delicious meat stacks.

The Brisbane store is the second Australian location for the takeaway giant with the first opening it's doors in February in Bateau Bay. At the Central Coast opening lines wrapped around the block and we are expecting similar maddening scenes as Brisbanites desperately try to get their hands on the American burger goodness.

Carl Jr's whose slogan is, "Eat Like You Mean It", menu features 100% Angus beef burgers (available in 1/3 lb or 1/2 lb)...grilled and fried chicken burgers...natural, criscut, and chili cheese fries...crispy chicken strips...onion rings...shakes...and ice cream cookie sandwiches for dessert. Breakfast is also available.


Carls Jr is a cheap and quick burger fix that fulfills a space currently left vacant in the fast food market in Australia. The burger is huge, much larger than it's competitors, with the 1/2 pound thick burger even trumping the whopper in size. It is extremely good value for money, the average combo meal will run you about $10.90. Also, unlike it's competitors Carl's Jr offers bottomless drinks from it's soda fountains. The fountains can be accessed by customers and you are welcome to drink to your heart's content. So save yourself  some $ and grab a small cup! TIP: Try the chicken strips with honey mustard dipping sauce- you won't be disappointed.

If airport dining isn't your thing don't fret- Carl's Jr has plans to open 300 stories across the country over the next 10 years, with a good chunk of them being based in Queensland.
