I’ve just about given up on the major chains, especially where cheeseburgers are concerned. After getting of the trail late in the evening yesterday, and doing the car shuffle so we could drive the crew into town, it was getting close to 2100, so we decided to get Q&D. I suggested Wendy’s, and the rest of the crew agreed. We arrived right at 2100.
Erin and I got cheeseburgers and fries, and tea; she also got a Frosty. Wendy’s is about the best of the major chains, but the bar isn’t high, and it wasn’t here, either. The burger was cooked just fine, but it had little flavor (this is the major plus over McD, Sonic, Braum’s, which have NO flavor). The tea was pretty good, and the fries were OK.
I think that the beef quality for these places has drastically declined. I would rather pay an extra 10% or whatever, and get a decent burger.
