So those working in substandard conditions will now not even have a sucky job. Maybe they can pick poppy.

Oh, man. I could go for a spicy chicken sammich right about now. Maybe some spicy nuggs. Their fries are horrible now, so no fries.

I always get the baked potato there, instead (plain; no sour cream).  It's the main reason I prefer Wendy's.

Kinda wish more chain retaurants had that option ... most places serve french fries that are wayyyyy too salty and/or greasy, IMO.

I will also opt for local diners that -- more often than not --  allow me to substitute mashed potatoes or other side dish with a burger (or a chicken sammich).

It's like Wendy's doesn't have a soul.

I kind of like the fries. I thought they were awful before, but now they're edible.

I definitely prefer the baked potato if it's available.

Wendy's has been on my boycott list since they pulled their advertising from Ellen DeGeneres' sitcom in the 90s.

Oh, it's too bad that you couldn't come up with a cute word for fries

One of the reasons I like them, though I substitute a small chili instead of fires or baked potato.

Let's be real here, all fast food tomatoes in a burger joint suck. If you want a decent tomato you didn't pick yourself you have to find a sub shop or a chicken place with a chicken sandwich on its menu.

I do like Wendy's original chicken sandwich, sans tomato.

Note that Walmart and McDonalds are OK with doing better.  Which probably means conservatives will boycott them, demanding they treat people like shiat.

Commercial tomatoes are green-ripe crunchy, farmer's market ones are over-ripe mush.  Tomatoes are one of the few items always  worth growing yourself, even if its only an Early Girl in a bucket on your patio.

I have this weird thing for tomatoes and zucchini, so I grow both most years.

What s/he said. The only restaurant I ever got really good fresh tomatoes had them growing on the roof.

Jersey Mike's always has the best tomatoes. IDK why. I'm extremely picky myself and have grown them yearly since moving into a house. I'm going to try a variety that is a little bit purple this year. I've never had a purple tomato before.

Shades of 1965-70.

Am I the only one here old enough to remember the Grape Boycott??

Cesar Chavez?

Anybody? Anybody?

I remember when people were protesting Taco Bell bout 20 years ago over the same thing. Progress is slow I guess.

I think those tomatoes need to look at the algorithm because Captain Marvel is a good movie.

I ordered Wendy's this week. No fries. I went for the single with an order of 6 nuggets honey mustard. Well, I was delivered the 6 nuggets and a son of baconator. That son of baconator is pretty good and it doesn't have tomato so I don't feel bad. I kinda feel for the guy that had to eat my Wendy's single though.
