Lots of raw onions, and some ketchup or tomato, nothing else. About half the time, protein style with no bun, just wrapped in lettuce. To me, a $0.99 Carls burger is just as satisfying as anything else. Never mayonnaise. Never cheese. Never any high calorie special sauces.

Lettuce, Tomato, regular Mustard, Dill Pickles & Cheese. Available, cooked the way you want it at Turk's in Dana Point Harbor. Add fries & a cold beer, that's all she wrote.

Put potato chips on the burger. I love it crunchy! I'd rather eat a great burger than a steak.

Keep it simple lettuce tomato pickle cheese with mayo, always good. But they do have a lot of nice choices to really spike up a burger. Enjoy
