Pros:Nice variety, healthy choices, great prices
Cons:Everyone seems to want to eat here at the same time!
Does anyone remember the fabulous episode of Designing Women when Mary Jo has to begin moonlighting at a burger joint when her ex-husband fails to come through with child support? Her boss, Julia, discovers her plight when Mary Jo arrives at their place of business, Sugarbaker's Design Firm, smelling of greasy hamburgers and salty french fries. Throughout the episode, Julia rants about the poor quality and tastelessness of fast food (as well as the uselessness of Mary Jo's ex); but the final scene shows her weaken and sneak a huge bite of the evil, fatty fare right from the paper sack.

A lot of us picture most fast food chain restaurants in this manner. Grease, salt, fat.. and nothing to stimulate the taste buds. Wendy's is truly an exception to this stereotype.
My husband and I frequently drive through one of the two Wendy's locations in our city to pick up dinner when we're running on a hurried schedule. While the wait in line is sometimes long, depending on the time of day, the food is always prepared fresh and plenty hot. Employees are usually well-mannered and efficient and appear to work well as a team. They convince me that my satisfaction is very important to them.
Wendy's offers a great variety of foods and has many nutritious choices for those watching their diet. Besides hamburgers and cheeseburgers in various forms and sizes, you may choose from chicken sandwiches (spicy, fried, or grilled), pitas, baked potatoes with a nice choice of toppings, salads (with regular and low-fat dressing options), and chili. Kids' meals are readily available and they offer the famous chocolate shake style Frosty for dessert.
Two nice features Wendy's offers are their $.99 value menu and their specialty sandwiches (my favorite is the Mozzarella Chicken Supreme), which usually have a limited, but decidedly popular run. Some items appearing on the value menu:
Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe
Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger
Small size Chili
Baked Potato with Sour Cream and Chives
Jr. Frosty dessert
Using the above choices, we can order a complete meal for the two of us for around $7.00.
Also available are combination meals which include a sandwich, fries, and drink for a fair price. The menu board explains these options in detail.
Overall, I have been consistently pleased with Wendy's performance and dedication to serving quality food in a fast-paced setting. Any time I travel and visit other Wendy's restaurants I find this type of service to be the norm as well.
If you haven't had good experiences with chain restaurants in the past, bite the bullet and try Wendy's. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Thanks for reading; have a great night.
Julia! I see you with that hamburger!
