Four years after Carl's Jr first hit Aussie shores, the cult-favourite American burger joint is at last landing in Melbourne, opening the doors to its first Victorian store in the eastern suburbs.

It all kicks off on Friday, October 26, as the fast food chain — renowned for its monstrous stacked buns — sets out to prove it can stack up against our own famously good burger scene.

Setting up shop within Knox Westfield's dining precinct, beside Village Cinemas, this new local edition of Carl's Jr will be dishing up its signature menu of 'American classics' that's earned it a heap of fans overseas.

We're talking the aptly named Thickburger, teaming an angus beef patty with extras like portobello mushroom, or bacon and guacamole, alongside hefty chargrilled numbers such as the Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger. The Big Carl's rocks a double patty and oozy American cheese, and chook-lovers are sorted with seven different chicken dishes. Then, there are breakfast options for the early birds, salads for the virtuous and some pretty solid sundaes and shakes for dessert.

The chain has also mentioned it's planning to open two more Victorian stores by the end of the year.

Find the new Carl's Jr store at Westfield Knox, 425 Burwood Highway, Wantirna South.
