So much to choose from and....it can be so decent.

What is often considered the number 3 fast food burger restaurant in America is Wendy's and they can be so good some days and so lame others.

Wendy's has good food, prepared well but I can have a great burger some days with great ingrediants like fresh cheese and thick bacon and others it can just be stale and I don't understand why.  It's not just one Wendy's either, it can be any of them on any given day.

Wendy's is known for it's square cut burgers, thick fries and if I'm not mistaken the first to have a value menu.  The value menu is what brought me in cause it was the first to have a bacon cheeseburger for 99 cents when the closest thing was a McDonalds bacon cheeseburger, WHEN they had them available with bacon in this weird cut, melted frisbee shape.  The bacon was good, the burger good and it was only a buck.  The Frostee's too were on the value menu for 99 cents and it's milkshake delight that puts, AGAIN McDonalds and it's Triple Thicks to shame.  I swear the Triple Thicks are actually soupier then the ones they used to have and are not EVEN as thick.  Wendy's did also have the kindness to allow you at one time anyway to swap out the fries on your meals for baked potatoes, chili or other item.

Wendy's now though is known for it's Baconator.  A heartattack on a bun if you go for the 4 patties.  It's a tower of bacon, cheese and grease.  It's the kind of burger that they're making fun of in Grand Theft Auto IV in the Burger Shot commercials.

Wendy's is going out of it's way to be as clean as they can with refills.  The only soda dispensor is behind the counter and at the locations by me, they will always give you a new cup and ice when you get a refill.  Nice, but I can only imagine how many cups they go through in a day doing that.

I like Wendy's, I do but somedays it's good and others it's, only okay.  Better then being bad all the time I guess.

It's been awhile since I have been to Wendy's I remember years ago when they first came to Chicago. They were so fresh and yummy.

I haven't been to Wendy's for years, I like McDonald's better but I love Wendy's Mushroom Swiss even though I'm not a big fan of burgers!

I love me some Wendy's. Now, I'm a pretty big fast food addict in general, but this chain in particular offers up some tasty grub (like my personal favorites, the Spicy Chicken Sandwich and the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger) that won't empty your wallet. In my experience, the service is also some of the fastest around in comparison with its competitors- most of the time I barely blink, and voila- my food's ready! Wendy's also gets bonus points in my book for being the originator of the oh-so-delicious …

Is it wrong that I don't think I've ever ordered anything NOT from the $1 menu?! Honestly, when you can have chicken nuggets, fries dipped in a frosty (so good), and a baked potato for about $4... why would you order anything else?! I know that's wrong.. because I know they must have some great burgers and what not.. but I'm so thoroughly impressed with their dollar menu selection that I'll just stick to it.    For one summer I was so addicted to the fries with frostys that I …
