    From the Houston Business Journal comes news that burger franchise Carl's Jr. will be opening over 100 stores in Texas, with several planned for the Houston area. Although it's not yet known how many Carl's Jr.'s will be opened or where they'll be located, hamburger enthusiasts are already starting to salivate.

    Aside from their purposely ostentatious menu items -- such as their Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger with onion rings underneath the patties and their Guacamole Bacon Six Dollar Burger which weighs in at 1,140 calories and 85 grams of fat -- Carl's Jr. is also known for their flamboyant and hilarious commercials. So while we wait for the good folks at Hardee's to decide which lucky corner of Houston will get that first Carls' Jr., let's have a look back at some of their best commercials throughout the years.

    they are opening one in Cedar Park (suburb of austin).
    When I went to LA, i had their jalapeno Six Dollar Burger.
    It was great. I think its better than Whataburger.

    But for a local joint in Austin, I like PTerry's. They use angus beef and their fries are fresh cut.

    Gross. Carl's was good about 5 years ago but I think they've changed their meat since then. The burger has the consistency of a boca burger and it even tastes like it has soy or something in it. I live out in the NW where the only fast food burger joints exist are BK lounge, Micky D, Wendys, Jack in da Crack and Carls JR for the main ones. CJ's is by far the least popular and rightfully so. If Whataburger is as good as some of you Texans claim and you have places like Five guys and other various good burger joints than you will soon see how not good CJ's really is.

    I'm surprised its not the Hardees brand as that would be more regional.

    Good point. I doubt the models in the Carl's Jr ads ever eat a 6 dollar burger.

    They just put one in across the street from me in South Austin. Also put one in down in San Marcos.

    I used to go when I was in California but In-and-Out Burger is way better by far.

    I drove past that one last night and it was insanely packed. It cracks me up that people flock to a grand opening of a fast food place. the same thing happened when they opened taco bueno.

    I don't understand this either. It happened here in Portland when Krispy Kremes opened the line was literally a mile long. Then Popeyes, Sonic, five guys burger and soon el pollo loco.
