We like to order the Santa Fe chicken sandwiches and then have a picnic on Clam beach. This is nearby all the hotels in the area and nice.

Never had a problem with the food or accuracy of the orders. My go to fast food chain in Arcata, the quality is something you won't get at McDonald's plus the variety like I never get the fires, I get the zucchini instead.

Generally speaking, Carl's is Carl's is Carl's. Of the national chains it is the one I like best. What made this one stand out was a really friendly, cheerful and alert staff. It was a pleasure to deal with them.
