This is still the best burger in town but the service has taken a real dive lately. The old crew has been replaced by one that doesn't allow customers to interfere with their jokes and conversations. It's really ridiculous to stand and be ignored while the people behind the counter frolic and eventually take your order when they feel they... More

Convenient location not far from I-5. Ordered the Western bacon cheeseburger and it was good. Restaurant was clean and employees were very friendly.

Ate here twice. Worse food & service both times and haven't been back since! Food sat in window forever and got cold. And tasted terrible. Tried when first opened and was bad. Waited awhile to see if got better and second time was worse!

I have been Here two times and both have been enjoyable. The food is good the place is clean. Only one employee stands out to be a little annoying but I am sure she will not be there to much longer. Other then that all is very good. A good place to stop and eat food is yummy. ...:)

Maybe once or twice but this restaurant is the slowest anywhere. I've stopped there for breakfast one to three times per month for breakfast and the breakfast sandwiches are excellent. Best biscuits in Washington. It doesn't matter if there's anyone in the drive through or not you're guaranteed a 10 to 15 minute wait. Only once did they offer free... More

Wish we had more Carl's Jr. restaurants in our area! My husband and I love their chicken items and stop by this location any time we're in the Oly area. Their BBQ sauce should be bottled and sold in their restaurants - it's that good! Can't attest to the cleanliness of the restaurant tables, restrooms, etc. as we always use... More

Carl's Jr. is strictly for the burger/fries/quick sandwich fan, but they do them better than any other place around- a quantum leap forward from Mickey D. and Burger King. Service is better than at most other fast food places in the area. It's tough for me to get excited about fast food, but if you're a fan, come here. Their... More

We, both, had the Super bacon Six Dollar Burger. I had the Crisscut Fries she had the Sweet Potato fries. I had the combo - vanilla shake. So ... lets see ... There wasn't a cleaned off table in the place. After placing our orders we went to pick a table (booth), there was dried stains on the table surface... More

I have eaten at Carls Jr. Restaurants many a time, all over California. For a fast food burger Carls Jr. Is One of the better places. The quality of this Carls was average, but it is still better quality than Burger King and Jack In the Box (by a little bit). It is a whole lot better than McDonalds. Yes,... More
