Kamloops has to be a paradise among North American small cities as pretty well everywhere you eat, the service is almost borderline-ridiculously friendly. Either people here are just superhappy to live in this great Canadian desert town, or they're all audioanimatronics happy bots. Carl's Jr. is no exception as the staff seems genuinely joyful... far more than I would ever possibly be working at a fast food restaurant.
As for the fare, it's typical Carl's Jr. and varies widely. The Angus Thickburger patty is a good size and tastes great, but on the Texas version the jalapeno fried slices are all breading with no discernible heat whatsoever, and the cheese really should be melted and not a cold slab. On the other hand, the pulled pork is heavenly and the bun is fresh, delectable and almost pretzel-bun brown.
The biggest problem I ran into was the crosscut poutine. It was so salty as to be literally inedible. Some of the potato pieces were literally triggering my gag reflex as a single serving seems to contain the average daily requirement for sodium for the entire population of Kamloops.I guess that the cost of the salt has to be why the prices are double that of the US, right?
