Charbroiled Burgers. Legendary American burger chain Carl’s Jr has hit New Zealand’s shores! (First in Takanini, and now in Glen Innes)
24 Reviews for Carl’s Jr.
Yes, they are greasy and no doubt full of fat but man they are tasty!
Fries good, DIY Jalapenos awesome, and a clean and comfortable atmosphere.

Thought I’d try it again just in case the Takanini restaurant was just a bad experience … So tried the one in Botany.. It was just as same as Takanini.. So bad

went there tonight on the 23rd july, I ordered and friend ordered but forgot the number tag and the people behind orded and got the same number and ended up having our burgers we complained and the indian manager wouldn’t accept that he was wrong he was blamming us for the number we didn’t choose, 4 customers inside and they couldn’t remember the orders, poor customer service and respect

What makes the burgers even better is that every time we come here, it has always been a great experience. Service is fast and accurate plus staff are very helpful and friendly.
Great job to the team!
Definitely recommend Carl’s Jr to anyone of all ages, especially when you run out of ideas for dinner this is one place you should check out.
Tuesday evening let’s go to Carl Jnr. 20 minute drive from my place across town to St Johns
Order a porabello thick I get Chicken.
Phone to complain only to be told “I’m sorry would you like a refund for that or a free meal”
I wanted what I ordered!
To receive either of those such “GENEROUS” offers I would have to go back. A 40 minute round trip
What on earth makes them think i would want to do that again !!!!!!!

I’ll certainly come back for more until I have tasted every meal on the menu:)
Out of 10 score I’ll give it a 8/10.
Will definitely come back whenever I’m in Auckland!!!
THE HAMBURGUERS LOOK JUST LIKE THE ONES IN THE PHOTOS!
Food was fantastic same taste ” loving it!!”
But the sad part was the table, most of the table has a sticky marks ( dirty ) and the couches has oily marks from the previous customer ( I guess )!! It was Monday afternoon , wasn’t busy tho:( heaps of staff but most of them busy chatting to each other, only one staff who works hard ( the guy who has a disability ) “well done”! He comes every table to clean the table.
Ordered chicken burgers and Angus beef burger combo which was delivered to our table (different) standard drink refills available, chips had skin on which was unusual, as they char grill the chicken and beef the taste was similar to Burger King.
A nice addition to the choices available in Auckland and with Restaurant Brands buying the NZ franchise expect the roll out across NZ to be pretty swift.
I spent $25 at the store yesterday.One of the items we purchased was the chili Fry’s,we always check our orders before we leave any store but for that day we did not..
and to my surprise when we opened the box at home all we found was heap of Fry’s with what looks like a dump of stuff on it….I cant believe that they can serve that kind of slop from there stores…My advice to all please check your food before you leave Carl’s Jr takeaways…Very disappointed.
I have been there about 8 times and now I avoid the place, burger king is far better, Carls Jr cannot even cook onion rings, every time they over cook them so they are dark and dry, my Jalapeno Burger was so dry, I think they might have left out a sauce, my big complaint is there super slow drive in, last week I was the only car in the drive in but I had to wait 15 minutes to get my food, I usually time how long they take. Two other times I waited 20 minutes, you might think that is slow but my buddy went inside, he was second in line and it took 30 minutes before he came out to my car.. some of their staff need to learn to say hello or thank you.
My conclusion is stick with wendy’s or burger king
today 17/3/2013 i decided to try carls again.. i went in the drive through.. i was 3rd car back,, i noticed when the car in front got his meal the second car ordered his food.. i thought hell no this system is going to be slow… i waited 7 minutes for the first car to get his meal and then the car in front of me went up to collect food… i timed to see how long i had to wait again… i thought someone would say,, hello whats your order or anything,,, sadly after 11 minutes the second car got his food,, then someone sais hello can i help you.. no you can’t i said and drove off.. i thought 18 minutes waiting was enough.. surely taking orgers before cars move forward would be so much faster,, never again

The most unique thing to on the menu are the breakfast biscuit sandwiches. Poorly named for the kiwi palate, these actually taste like a very light and moist savoury scone with bacon, egg and cheese inside. Yum. On the regular menu, swap the fries for deep fried courgette with a side of ranch dipping sauce. Or try the ‘waffle cut’ fries.
Normally when I eat here I don’t count the calories, but the last time I went I finally tried the Santa Fe Chicken burger which was grilled and on a wheatmeal bun. Not exactly ‘health food’ but still a bit less fatty than a cheeseburger.
Second best thing is the Portobello mushroom burger.
I haven’t found another burger that I would rave about at Carl’s Jr. But the first meal I had there, we were both blown away by the flavours of chips & burgers.
Second time we went, we ordered different burgers… and they were a bit average.
But I would have given 5 stars if I was just rating the Portobello mushroom burger and the fries.
Interesting to see the queues out the door and drive-thru cars lining up down the street when (and since) they opened their doors like a month ago. The owners did super-well with their positioning here. I feel a bit sorry for McDonalds in Glen Innes…
