Yep. In Denton. By the Target on the loop.
There is one in Denton
In the round rock area. Ate there
Here in Austin, we have Carl's Jr. Although, I really cannot imagine ordering a foot long cheeseburger! My word!!
There is one in Denton on Loop 288 and two in Wichita Falls that I know of.
Denton has one, but I've never tried it.
i say we start a state tax on fat grams or calories etc.

I think I've seen one in Wichita Falls. Maybe not.
There is one in Denton on loop 288 east of I-35 E, just before you get to Wal-mart on the right hand side.Double Fake Carl Jr.
Oh, wait---that was In 'n Out Burger I heard they are building. There used to be a Carl's in Denton. Still there??????
I thought I heard recently they are builing one in Dallas somewhere.
Brand new one in Denton in the old Krystal Burger building by Walmart...
There is a Carls Jr. in Denton near the intersection of Loop 288 and Brinker Rd.
99.9% of the population know the nutritional harm they do to themselves when they eat a supersized cheeseburger. Carl's Jr sells salads too, so every customer has a healthier, less-damaging choice. I daresay that other "choices" drove us downhill faster than eating a cheeseburger.
Have a hot Carl.DF Barb Smith
I am more concerned that so many people know exactly where one of these places are located. I have lived in TX all my life and have never heard of one, but I don't really eat fast food....been living out of the garden this summer and I don't think I have ever felt better since I was a youngster. People are punishing themselves with this kind of crap-azz food and punishing their families. When you start having heart attacks/health problems in your 40's that takes a toll on families and is unfair to your children especially since they are learning the same bad habits. If you fatty's out there don't want to start exercising and eating right for yourself, do it for your family--and don't give me no crap about genetics or thyroid problems--pick your fat f'ng azzes up and get to work you worthless ho-ho eating waddlelopes!!!
guess folks in "thinner" states - colorado, oregon, california, new york, etc. are just smarter than us since they, on average, make healthier food choices.
Is there one in Denton?
Since the obesity rate among ethnic minorities such as Mexican-Americans is higher than for the population at large, I can only interpret the hateful remarks directed at the obese as being racially motivated. You can't judge the character of an entire ethnic minority by the obesity of a few unfortunate individuals. For if you do, shouldn't we blame all ethnic minorities for obesity? And if all ethnic minorities are to blame, isn't this an indictment of racial tolerance and understanding? I put it to you, isn't this an indictment of Martin Luther King and his dream? Well, you can say whatever you want, but I'm not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth Martin Luther King. Gentlemen! (C'mon, hum the Star Spangled Banner with me.)

Hey, wordkyle - I thought you were pre-med...Triple Fake Schoenstein
12:03 there is definitely one in Wichita Falls. But then they also have Craig Estes. He probably decreed that there should always be one in Wichita Falls.
Mother Blues in Dallas use to do a Sunday Music thang whew you got in for a 2 dollar cover and could get all you could eat "Bob's Burgers" for 2 dollars as well. The Bob's Burgers were oval almost like a sub bun but about 8 inches long. They were delicious but most of the folks that went to those Sunday happenings couldn't eat more than one so they still made a buck or two and it was usually packed. My band played a couple of them in 73. We got our burgers free.
Every person has the right to choose his/her lifestyle. None of your business what others choose. Everyone needs to focus more on minding their own business and stay OUT of others'.
I have heard somewhere that there might be a Carl's Jr. in Denton. Don't know where I got that info from, though!
249 - What's the difference? (And don't ask what I carry in my little black bag.)For some interesting reading, try the news story "Vegetarians at higher risk of eating disorders." Said disorders include taking diet pills, making themselves vomit, and using laxatives and diuretics. Pass the bacon.
Thin, vegan, and constipated is no way to go through life son.DF Dean Vermer
Wordie, I've spoken numerous times on this blog about the dangers of eating disorders, but the perfect humans to like to judge what others eat and how they choose to live prefer to cast stones at the rest of us. I agree with you...pass the bacon.....you fitness freaks just wear me out!
Barry, BTW congrats on Nuptuals. There is a Carl's Jr in South Dallas at I-20 and South Polk Street. Its in one of those "Love's Truckstop/Convenience Store/Restaurant/Gas Station" Combos. Probably used to be a Dairy Queen.Just wait for In N Out in Garland if you're gonna drive all the way from Wise County.-Rob
They are building one in Mesquite.
Go ahead and indulge...see you Cardiac ICU...LOL
Blame our FDA for the stuff they let get put in the our food that causes cancer and addiction to the food. Then the drug companies make the money to treat the cancer.B-17 is illegal in the U.S. Ever heard of it? It cures cancer. It is legal in Mexico and European Countries. It would take 15 or so apricot seeds ground up to get enough B-17 legally in the U. S., but if you don't know what your doing it could kill you.
8:44 Quit snorting apricot seeds there pal!! I don't think the "fitness freaks" really expect the fatty's to do what they do, but maybe just get off of their rears and walk or jog or sumpthin'. I eat reasonably and exercise reasonably, eat fast food only on occasion, and when I treat myself it doesn't involve fast food. If you are a fatty then maybe you have already been passed the bacon one to many times. I am not for the government intervening in peoples lives to tell them how to eat, but if private insurance wants to deny coverage or increase premiums to fatty's I am all for that! With Obama Care looming who knows what big brother is going to tell us we can and can't eat.
1127 - Why should fitness freaks or anybody "expect" anyone else to do anything? Because they don't like how that person looks? If you want to argue about their increased cost to society, then* Prohibit (or ration) homosexuality. Gay males account for the vast majority of AIDS/HIV cases.* Prohibit vegetarianism. See the article cited above.* Prohibit young black males. They account for the vast majority of homicides in the US.* Prohibit mental health services. They are a massive drain on healthcare dollars, and offer no tangible benefit. (Other than the emotional wellbeing of the patient -- the same as a cheeseburger.)
Extreamly fit people die every day at every age. There are so many things in life that you can die from that no one gives a second thought to. I refuse to deny myself the occasional pleasure of ice cream or a good greasy cheese burger in the hopes that I will live forever. I personally have seen freinds that were fitness nuts die miserable deaths from disease that had absolutely nothing to do with their level of fitness, so preach to someone else. I'll be the guy in the corner eating the burger and drinking the shake!
Word, again you miss the point little buddy, or should I say big buddy? I was only addressing a previous commentor, not you, in saying that "fitness freaks",which in our society seems to be anyone who works out twice a week, probably do not expect obese folks to take fitness to the extreme but would appreciate that they gave it a try now and then...and I didn't even say anything about looks!!!I'll take the bait though, since you jumped on my comment even though I stated that government shouldn't tell anyone how to live their lives or prohibit them from being overweight. I don't want to argue their increased cost to society but elaborate on your unique choices as examples of other costly groups.* Prohibit (or ration) homosexuality. Gay males account for the vast majority of AIDS/HIV cases.--I am sure they do, but you can't prohibit someone for being what they were born as(at least not anymore). Yeah, you can be born fat, or have health problems that prevent you from being a healthy weight, but I was speaking about people that eat themselves fat and won't try to do better. You are just simply born gay. (I am sure their is a small portion of the gay population that chose it as a lifestyle but most were born that way)Perhaps you added this one to the list because you would like to prohibit or ration homosexuality?* Prohibit vegetarianism.-- Never tried it never would, and never met a vegie head I liked but they are entitled to eat themselves unhealthy just like fatty's--besides this one is really the only example that can be compared to the fatty's because it is the only one on your list that is a lifestyle.* Prohibit young black males.-Black is just how you were born and is not something that can (well it can but not easily--see the late Micheal Jackson) or needs to be changed. Maybe you would like to prohibit young black males as well as gays? * Prohibit mental health services.- Mental illness does need to be treated, but I don't think the mentally ill actually chose to be that way, mental illness is not a lifestyle either, like overeating is for some fatty's. When is the last time you heard of a doctor prescribing a cheeseburger? My point was there are an abundance of obese/overweight folks out there that just won't try, has nothing to do with big brother or costs to society or meeting a cultural ideal for appearance. Sure there are other groups that have problems, but obesity is also a part of all of these groups and there is simply nothing political about that! Society will change when people change, not when or if government mandates it...you and I will pay the bill no matter which!
1127/232 - I used the word "expect" because you did. I guess you missed my point, as my examples were meant to illustrate (mildly humorously) how absurd things can get when we condemn certain people based on their cost to society. Your use of the judgmental term "fatty" is based entirely on looks, as it is a physical description. (How would you know one unless you saw him?) You clarified who you were describing in your latter comment -- behavior -- but still insist on the physical description, which may not be accurate. (Example: Someone who is obese, but who is currently eating right and exercising, and losing weight, you would classify as a "fatty" on sight, despite his behavior.)I would argue that homosexuality is defined by behavior. (One is not classified as a homosexual until one behaves in a certain way.) AIDS/HIV most certainly is attributable to behavior. (Not counting blood transfusions, infants, rape, etc.)Incidentally, private health and life insurance are already more costly and/or denied because of the applicant being obese. (Based on a google search, not on personal experience.) In other words, obese people with private insurance are paying their own way.Your last paragraph I agree with.
Word...I did use "expect" and I did use the judgemental descriptor "fatty" and I got your point initially because you weren't going to miss an opportunity to politicize the conversation. To my defense I never made the point we needed to condemn anyone. I used the word fatty in describing obese people who are healthy enough to change their habits but refuse to do so, not those that are trying, but to your defense you didn't know that. I enjoy a good cheeseburger as the next guy, but also know you can't get one from a fast food chain.I look at obesity the same as alcoholism, once obese always obese... The same reason an alcoholic has no place in a bar a recovering fatty has no place in Burger King!Just because someone is not classified as homosexual until they behave a certain way in no way means they were not born that way. Were you homosexual until you first showed interest in the opposite sex? Last time I checked heterosexuals take place in behavior/lifestyles that can result in AIDS/HIV as well.
1127/232/440 - You are right to a point. I blended two different responses into one post. I of course think government should rarely, if ever, impinge on the right of its citizens to choose. (Before we go there, I consider an unborn infant a citizen, with the right to life, liberty, etc.)What I mainly object to is your tone of disgust and disdain when you discussed "fatties" and their shortcomings, as though they lacked some virtue in their character. Yours was a judgment based on appearance, and justified with arguments on how they add to everyone else's burden. At least that's how it sounded; if I was wrong, I apologize. The word you used -- "fatty" -- did not sound like one of respect or affection.Your point on homosexuality (other than including me) may be correct. However, homosexuality is expressed physically. You don't know someone is gay until he or she exhibits some behavior indicating it. (Declaring oneself gay is such behavior.) Finally, your comment on AIDS/HIV is correct. Those behaviors occur most commonly in gay men, however, resulting in the statistic I mentioned earlier.
