Over the early part of the summer Carl’s Jr. was doing something crazy. They offered the Western Bacon Cheeseburger for $1 on Wednesdays. The deal ran through the end of July, but it was incredible. You could buy up to four at the price and no additional purchase was required.
Carl’s Jr. seems to recognize the toll that their ever-increasing menu prices are having on the everyday consumer. In addition to this special, the popular $5 All Star meals and a number of other rotating special prices (e.g. the California Classic) are giving guests at least a couple of affordable alternatives to their bigger ticket items. Insert applause.
