New one also being built close to Highway 6 and Murphy rd. in Missouri City. Don't know what the big deal is though, I grew up with them back west and they are ok but nothing to get excited about.

Well, maybe it's because Houstonians have never had it before. When a new chain arrives, people tend to get excited because it's something new and different and it gives more food options. That's my opinion.

When I still ate fast food I had this before but in another city. It's way over priced and really bad. And if you get excited about a fast food joint you need to get help from a nutritionist me thinks.

We ate at a Carl's Jr. in Monterrey, N.L., Mexico, they have alot of locations south of the border, back in the summer of 2008. We were not that impressed at all. We had heard many good reviews from our fellow transplant Houstonians, so we decided to give it a try. Needless to say, I have been to Monterrey, N. L., Mexico at least a dozen times since then and have just kept on driving by Carl's Jr. If they build one in the area of Houston where we live, then maybe we will give it another shot. Until then, I shall remain unimpressed with Carl's Jr.

It doesn't seem that bad from what I see. It's basically a clone of Hardee's, which is a restuarant in more Eastern areas like Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, what have you.

Hardee’s

It isn't. While they share common ownership (Carl's Jr bought Hardees in 1997), the menus are different, the burgers are different, and in my experience (limited to CA and NV) Carl's Jr. is the much superior restaurant. The Hardees logo looks like the Carl's Jr logo because of the buyout.
