This site blocked the link; I'll try typing it in:               If it doesn't go through this time, just google Carrols (Finland).

    Yes! I remember Carrols well. Back when I lived in Rochester NY in the late 60's and 70's, it was such a treat to go there as a kid. The Club Burger was the best! I'm going to have to make some Royale sauce and try and recreate it. Ah, the memories.

      I too remember eating  $.15 burgers at the Henrietta Carroll's and thought they were way better than the McD's which opened later on East Henrietta rd near the Wegman's. I can't remember where in Henrietta the Carroll's was. I grew up in Rochester from '63-'74 and miss the food, not the winters...

        There were two Carrolls in Henrietta. One was at the corner of West Henrietta Rd and Brighton Henrietta Town Line Rd and the other was on Jefferson Rd just west of Southtown Plaza.

          My very first fast food experience was with Carrol's back in the mid-60's.  We lived in Loudonville, NY, outside of Albany, and there was a Carrol's restaurant on Route 9 in Latham, IIRC.  The fries were the first thing that literally knocked my socks off - I'm sure they weren't healthy, but the flavor was mind-blowing!  I recall inhaling the burgers, but I can't recall opting for the Club Burger vs. just a regular cheeseburger or hamburger - it didn't take much to please me and as a student, I didn't have a lot to spend.  I do remember the "A Serving A Second" logo - man, I would give anything to roll back the years and enjoy another great meal from Carrol's!  Thankfully I was overseas on active military duty  when they changed to BK's - neither BK, McDonalds, Wendy's, Hardees, or any other pretenders ever measured up to Carrols, IMO!

            I worked for Carrols in the mid seventies; the first assistant manager of our store is now the "Catbert" of Carrols Corp. 
            The Club Burger was built upside down in a cardboard collar using a three piece bun.  The crown was placed in the collar, then Royal Dressing (from Monarch Food in Spfld, MA), lettuce, ground beef pattie, cheese, middle of bun, cheese (rotated 90 degrees relative to the first slice), beef pattie, onions, ketchup, bottom of bun (to the best of my recollection).  The tomato slice had been eliminated berfore I worked there; we had the Roast Beef Hero (a new item at the time)...the slice of beef was folded into one quarter and seven pieces were placed on the bun.  It was nuked for 1 minute in our brand new Litton Menumaster microwave.
            I worked there six months and made Swing Shift Manager in three ($3.00 an hour!!!).

              I grew up in Montgomery, NY; our house was on Rt. 17K. Since you had to travel to either Newburgh or Middletown to do any shopping, my mother used to often shop in the Newburgh area and we would always eat at Carrol's in Newburgh, right on Rt. 17K (near the old Lloyd's). My father worked at Stewart Air Base, and we'd visit him there and preferred eating at Carrol's to eating mess hall food! Does anyone else remember this particular Carrol's in Newburgh, NY?

              I remember the Carrols located in the same shopping area as the W.T. Grants dept store and the Big V supermarket, in Vails Gate, NY.

                In case you haven't heard, and even if you have, I'll post a very late update here for posterity:
                Carrols is now officially dead in Finland as well. They were starting to slowly open new locations again for a while, but looks like someone at Hesburger didn't like that and they were all converted to Hesburgers in early 2012. The one restaurant previously left intact at the center of Helsinki was closed too.
                I think you can still get Club Burgers on Hesburgers at times as a campaign product, though, but ever since they bought the chain, the burgers have tasted drier - I don't know if is them putting too little sauce or the salad, which I think they changed. I'd really like to see someone starting the chain again and making their original products properly.
                Anyway, I thought you guys would like to know this before your trip to Finland.
