Well they've listened. Not everyone knows this, but Carls has introduced an alternative options section to their menu. It includes, gluten sensitive, vegi, and of course low carb options. And even though they don't have it on the menu, you can actually order any of their food this way. If you say "Low carb it" or simply ask for any sandwich lettuce wrapped they will ditch the bun and you are in business.
With this in mind I decided I would go for Carls Jr.'s version of the Big Mac or what they call the Big Carl. Two pattys of beef, two slices of cheese, special sauce (the secret is love), and its all wrapped up in some lettuce. Its basically that, is a simple burger. Your not going to get much carbs with this one since its mostly meat and lettuce. The ones you do get are coming from that special sauce, so you can always have them go light on it if you need to.
What Carls get right with this burger is how much lettuce they use when they wrap their burgers. They really wrap it. I actually find myself pulling off half the lettuce cause it is so much. This is great in comparison to some places that simply put a small leafy green on top of the patty when you ask for the low carb choice. When its finnished I feel full and satsifed. And its also nice to not have to cut my burger with a knife and fork. Well done Carls.
