Dave N.’s Review
Wendy’s restaurants tend to offer very few surprises.
As is fairly typical, I was in a rush and needed something fast and to-go. I hit up Wendy’s before getting on the subway. This particular Wendy’s was clean and tidy, but unfortunately it was also crazy slow with my order. When I arrived there were no other customers, so I’m not really sure why it took so long.
As my aggravation mounted, a family arrived — including two loud, yelling children. Now, it’s not Wendy’s fault that these kids were annoying, but this kind of thing is not atypical for a fast-food scenario and does impact the experience. So, points lost.
By the time I got my burger I was running late and had a headache. At this point every little minor aggravation was likely to set me off. Minor aggravations like:
- The fries were far too hot, possibly dangerously so.
- The fries were tossed into my paper bag haphazardly, creating greasy spots in the paper and ruining the structural integrity of the bag.
- The service was not unfriendly, but certainly not overly hospitable either.
So anyway, I pretty much had a terrible time of it there.
Wendy’s burgers have the potential to be pretty greasy, but they’re also pretty tasty. This one wasn’t an exception. When I was finished eating it, there were somewhat-gross grease puddles left over in the burger’s foil wrapping. Despite this, the burger had a decent, fresh-ish taste for a fast food burger. It was also pretty soft and squishy, which I like in fast food.
