This moment is coming courtesy of Carl’s Jr., who has added the vegan Beyond Burger as an option to its menu nationwide. They’ve worked with purveyor Beyond Meat to create a patty that cooks just like their standard burgers and mimics the taste and appearance as well.
Right now, the go-to way to order Carl’s newest addition is the Beyond Famous Star, which is the meat-free homage to the burger chain’s signature sandwich. It does come with mayo and cheese, but these can be removed for those looking for a vegan burger experience.

Carl’s Jr. is selling the Beyond Famous Star starting at $6.29, putting it on par with the prices of its standard charbroiled burgers. You can also change the burger on any other Carl’s Jr. offering to a Beyond patty for a $2 upcharge.
This marks the largest plant-based burger partnership in the nation to date, as Carl’s 1,100-plus locations carrying the Beyond patty easily surpasses the 400-plus White Castle locations selling Impossible Burger sliders. With their combined reach, it’s paved the way to get a plant-based fast food burger across the entire country.
