As the owner of many Wendy's franchises, I can say this slanderous inference that the meat comes from horses is completely false. We use nothing but the healthiest looking, live homeless people we can find.

I thought it was Grade D, fit for human consumption but not recommended..

Maybe they'd have lower costs if they didn't ladle a quart of vegetable oil over each burger patty.

I think Wendy's new red-headed spokes model is cute.

Would his daughter really have wanted an asiago chicken sandwich, homestyle or grilled to perfection? Would the rich pseudo-asian sauce really bring back fond memories?

Great, now I want a cube with cheese & bacon, and large fries (emptied into the bag with ample salt/pepper and shaken for proper distribution)...

don't use the real wendy in the commercials. doesn't anyone in the company have the balls to tell her she's a frumpy. if she had any kind of straight on hotness,Athleticism, great looking milf, or mix of all three she would target a demographic of american adults so easily it would be laughable. it is like her commercials are a anti jared and subway message.

Really? Their burgers aren't sweet enough to be horse.

I prefer Wendy's over any other major chain.

If they knocked the corners off those damned burgers, they'd save 20% right there

RockChalkH1N1: Their frys suck, bring the old ones back


Came here to say exactly this. I won't eat at Wendys anymore specifically because they destroyed their fries.

Hint time: offer consumers a choice (heaven forbid)...

See? If they were still allowed to use Pink Slime we wouldn't have this problem!
 
2012-05-08 09:59:20 PM  
If they were using horse meat I would finally start eating there. Probably the most cleanest and healthiest meat you can eat.
 
2012-05-08 10:01:59 PM  
I like the new burgers (single or double, triple is overkill) and the spicy chicken and frostee. Everything else is shiat.

That's actually not a bad point, As horse is yet to be bred purely for slaughter, they aren't injected with the same chemical slurry of growth hormones and antibiotics, and aren't fed the cheapest cornmeal available, like the more consumable pig, chicken, and bovine.

Short of free-range poultry, horse is probably right up there...

The potatoes and chili are good. I tried to try their sweet potato, but they gave me a cheese potato instead.

I don't go fast food much, but its a million times better than mcdonald's anything (yes, the 10% of the time your fries haven't sat out for 20 minutes they are the best fast food fries available, I know).

I do wish wendy's didn't rob you blind for not getting a damn meal combo. 2 bucks for a drink.

I don't like the new burgers. That's why they lost my business.
 
2012-05-09 12:54:29 AM  
I used to love Wendy's as fast food goes, but first they ruined the fries. THEN the Frostys went up in price and significantly down in portion size. AND then my last straw....new burgers NOTHING like the Wendy's I knew and loved. I was hugely upset and biatched to the manager (I know it's like whizzing in the wind but wanted to diplomatically get it off my chest) and was told EVERYTHING has been changed....completely different vendors than previous for all ingredients, different goat meat, etc.
Suck it Wendy's. Thanks bean counters for completely destroying another American icon.

I never buy anything that isn't on the dollar menu so I can see how they can be struggling. That and they have that cancer promo that you donate $1 and you get a small frosty any time you place an order!

Wendys = good fries, the rest is rather crappy tasting.

All of the big fast food chains are now at a price point where there really isn't any incentive to bother with them.

What, 2 tacos for $.99 too much for your blood?

Horse meat? No, that costs money. Roadkill is free!

Don't care what anyone says. The burgers were much tastier 30 years ago.
