Carl’s Jr will find a home on Queen West
The U.S. burger chain, best known for its unwavering dedication to the axiom “sex sells,” has reportedly chosen the location of its first Toronto restaurant. According to a building application unearthed by BlogTO, the city’s first Carl’s Jr. will be housed in the former HMV building at 272 Queen West, at Beverley Street. For those who aren’t well versed in Carl’s Jr. lore, the chain’s signature menu item is the Six Dollar Burger—so named (without a ton of foresight, it seems) because $6 was around the price people expected to pay for a fancy restaurant hamburger back in 2001. The burger chain’s northern expansion plans, which were unveiled last March, will see 30 outlets opening across Ontario in the next six years.

I’m a certified foodie, so I’m not easily swayed by product placement or cheap plugs (follicular or on film), but when I saw Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel moan and groan whilst inhaling Carl’s Jr. burgers (and before their smoke-fest at that) in This Is The End, I was ready to hop on a plane to find the closest Carl’s Jr in the States to inhale some gluten and grease… Never had one before, but I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m going to mark my calendar for this one… after the initial pandemonium subsides, of course… I’m not that pathetic.
Finally. I have been waiting a decade since my first Carlburger in Arizona. Their rings are crispy and greasy and great. And their shakes can be held upside down with out leaving
the container….thick with ice cream (I hope). I will miss the patrons with sidearms on their belt tho. Sure did keep their Arizona stores safe tho.
