Six years after Carl's Jr first hit Aussie shores, the cult-favourite American burger joint is at last landing in Sydney, announcing that it'll open its first local store in the city's west. Come early 2021, you'll be able to head to Wetherill Park to tuck into the fast food chain's menu — with the brand renowned for its monstrous stacked buns.

When it flings open its doors — with an exact date yet to be revealed, but early in the new year currently slated — it'll set up shop at the Greenaway Centre on The Horsley Drive. Burger lovers can expect Carl's Jr's signature menu of 'American classics' that's earned it a heap of fans overseas, as well as at the chain's Queensland, Victorian and South Australian joints.

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

This might be the first Carl's Jr store in Sydney, but it isn't the first in New South Wales — with existing spots in Bateau Bay and Glendale. In the near future, they'll all be joined by additional venues across the state. Carl's Jr plans to launch other eateries in the metropolitan Sydney area and in regional NSW, although locations and dates haven't been announced.

"We've already had tremendous success within the Australian market and aim to open 100-plus restaurants around the country over the next ten years," said Gaven Needham, General Manager — Asia Pacific of Carl's Jr. parent company, CKE Restaurants.

Find Carl's Jr at the Greenaway Centre at 1183–1187 The Horsley Drive, Wetherill Park from sometime in early 2021 — we'll update you with an exact opening date when one is announced.
