The first rule of fast food is never, and I mean never, take the top bun off and peek inside

Been busy for the last week visiting my mother in the hospital. Missed both breakfast and lunch yesterday so there is a Wendy's around the corner from the hospital and I was starved.....I guess I shouldn't expect much for a 1.89

I hope your mom is doing well. Next time, go for the stuffed baked potato. It's got bacon!

Or the chili
Like someone was just saying, there's something about Wendy's chili...
$1.89 is pretty cheap though. I didn't think they had anything for that cheap. Maybe a small pop

They have a value menu. About 7 or 8 things for 1.89. I got two bacon cheese burgers and a small diet pop. I figured if I was going to eat poorly it better not cost a lot...

Thanks. She is much better. Going back home on Friday. Had a bad cold then pneumonia set in. She was very weak and short of breath. The week in there did wonders for her....

The trick is know what to order at every spot and never look, just eat.

Wendy's does well with chicken sandwiches. We like their spicy chicken sandwich. We don't like their burgers.

You never go into a FF joint expecting to have a great burger. The best you can hope for is a sandwich with a flavor profile you like. I always get Big Macs or Whoppers. Their taste doesn't depend on the beef.

The fries are good...

pac and andy got it right--if it's fast food, eat and don't look. that's how i was dealing with it UNTIL the time i got food poisoning from a ff burger, that is. four godawful days with my head in the toilet is the only reminder i need to pass on those dollar menu burgers ever since.
