Carl's Jr. has opened a Carl's Jr. Jr. No, that's not a typographical error.

A Jr. Jr. is a smaller version of the regular-sized burger stand that the Anaheim-based fast-food chain is opening at former Rally's double-drive-through restaurants. The smaller restaurants have a downsized menu and aren't open for breakfast.

The first Jr. Jr. opened on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and the chain's executives are studying operating results to see how customers react, Carl's Jr. spokeswoman Suzi Brown said. A second unit in Glendale is now being converted and should open by the end of the year.
