PHOENIX -- The newest Carl's Jr. in the Valley will have Glendale sports fans seeing stars.

The burger chain now has a sports-themed location near the homes of both the Arizona Cardinals and Phoenix Coyotes.

"It has 11 flat-screen TVs, and we've given it more of a sports look, more modern," said assistant manager Imelda Ramirez.

While customers wait to order, they can check out a collage of pictures of current and past Valley sports teams, including the 1976 Phoenix Suns team that lost to the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals.

It's also easy to surf the Internet while you eat there, and there is a bar that has electrical outlets at every seat.

"I really like that," said Ramirez. "A lot of people are sitting there with their laptops. We have free Wi-Fi."

Ramirez said Sunday, Nov. 24 -- when the Cardinals host the Indianapolis Colts -- will be the restaurant's first test on how it handles the crowds during a Cardinals home game.

"We really want to have one of those days where we have a game on, just so we know how many people (on duty) we need exactly," Ramirez said. "But we're ready. We want the guests to come, and we want the players to come and eat here."

The location is open 24 hours, and it is the first fast food restaurant in the Westgate City Center.
