Their recent advertising has been to tout their fresh-baked buns. I thought the buns were solely for their premium line of burgers ("$6 dollar burgers") but on a recent visit I was asked if I wanted a fresh bun with my Western Bacon single. They charged a little extra for swapping the regular buns for the new fresh-baked buns. 

To my surprise, the fresh-baked buns do taste better than their regular buns, IMHO. The dough is a little on the sweet side...not quite King's Hawaiian bread sweet but sweet enough that I noticed it. It did make for a better burger experience, if you will.

Has anyone else tried their new line of fresh-baked buns?

I don't eat burgers from Carl's( or anywhere), but I will ask for a fresh baked bun next time I get a chicken sandwich.  I do like their fresh baked biscuits.
