Little Wendy's

I left work this afternoon at 4 p.m. to fetch a close family member who was expected to arrive at Nashville International Airport at 4:15. 'Cause of what happened today, we didn't leave the airport until nearly 6:15. Since my previous dinner plans were kaput at that point, we headed to the nearest Wendy's.

I wasn't real hungry, so I ordered a $.99 double-stacker:

As far as fast food is concerned, Wendy's serves the most homemade-tasting fast food burgers around. When I was 8-years-old, a Wendy's opened about a mile from my house. It quickly became the post-baseball-game haunt for me and my buds for the next ten years.

Wendy's burgers ain't quite as good as homemade burgers, but they're damn close. What I like about Wendy's is that their burgers are made to order, topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ... as well as the best fast-food pickles known to man.

Like I said, I ain't much on fast food. But that $.99 Wendy's burger may be the best fast food bargain in town. To borrow a line from Jules Winnfield, it is a tasty burger!

I had a Wendy's .99 double stack with cheese last night. It was tasty! I got it home and put some DUKE'S mayo on it!

You need to go to Hardee's for a burger.

I agree, Django. Of the "Big Three" fast food burger chains, Wendy's is definitely the best. And that 99 cent Double Stack is a heck of a deal.

When it comes to fast food hamburgers it's:

1. Wendy's
2. Burger King
3. Hardee's

McDonald's scrapes the absolute bottom of the barrel. It's a triumph of marketing and nothing more.
