Has anyone tried the new place in Sherman Oaks...

Has anyone tried the new place in Sherman Oaks that moved into the old Carl's Junior location on Ventura Blvd? I think it's called 50's Diner????

      Cdub, I think you may be right since I drove by CF's former location on Van Nuys Blvd. yesterday, and it looked vacant and there was some kind of sign on the door, I'm sure explaining the move to the new location.

      Seems kind of weird though, since CF was a sit-down diner and the setup at the new place looks the same as when it was a Carls Jr. (e.g. order at counter, someone brings you the food when it's ready).

      I also drove by the newly located CF yesterday, and it looks open for business but I'm reluctant to try it to be honest.

      CF was never appetizing to me, and can't imagine the new setup will change things for the better.

        This is definitely the same café 50s from Van Nuys Blvd. They moved because they wanted
        better parking and better visibility. It feels much cleaner than the other place.
        I had the blue cheeseburger with fries (delicious) and my friends had a soup (very good) and a couple of different sandwiches. Our waitress was great.
        We will go back for sure.
