Wendy's Complaint - Wendy's is not better than fast food!
GREENVALE, NEW YORK -- There was a time when I could always count on a fresh, tasty meal at Wendy's. I used to eat there regularly. I usually ordered 2 junior hamburgers and a large fries with an iced tea. Used to taste great and fill me up good. The meat used to hang out of the sides of the burgers and the fries were thicker and good.
But ever since Dave died, the quality is going downhill. The burgers are definitely smaller, and the fries taste just like McDonald's (cardboard). In addition it seems they don't put those nice fresh onions on the junior hamburgers anymore. I now refer to them as "breadburgers" as they have no meat in them. If I wanted McDonald's I would go there, but I don't and haven't eaten their junk food in 10 years!
So I wound up ordering a classic single instead of the juniors as at least they have some more substance to them, but lately even those have been getting skimpy. What ever happened to "never cutting corners" and "where's the beef"?
I'd gladly pay more to have a decent meal. But they are making us pay a little more for less. The burgers never look like they do in the ads. It's called false advertising and its illegal, Wendys should have to answer to their scamming the public!
My other complaint has to do with employees that do not understand English. It's getting harder and harder to find a Wendys that hires English speaking workers. Often they get my order wrong and communicate entirely in Spanish with each other. This is America I expect people to be able to speak and understand English. One Wendy's, in Greenvale, hires entirely Spanish speaking workers. They conduct interviews in Spanish as well. I have a good reason to believe they are hiring illegal aliens. Because of all these things I stopped at eating at any Wendy's as of last March.
I may go in there to use a restroom before getting on the bus but that's it. Apparently the Greenvale location doesn't like that either, because last time I went in there a couple of weeks ago the manager confronted me and told me he doesn't want me using the restroom. He got pissed because my nose was running and I have to take some napkins. I usually don't take napkins but I didn't have anything to wipe my nose with, I guess he'd rather it drip on the floor?
Anyway he said if he sees me in there again and not ordering anything he's calling the police. I told him I'm not the criminal...he's the criminal for hiring illegal aliens. He said "what does that have to do with my employees?", dodging the question as to whether his workers are here legally.
He then kicked me out. There's no sign saying "restroom for customers only", if there was I wouldn't have used it. Their restroom was disgusting anyway and always dirty and full of MS-13 gang graffiti (from his employees?).
I used to frequently patronize that Wendy's as well, but was fed up with the cold food and wrong orders. They couldn't even get a frosty right, last time I had one there it was melted!
Anyway in the end its a shame. I used to love Wendy's. I miss the way it used to be. If they truly were doing it "Dave's Way" the food never would've changed. I go to Nathans now if I want a fast food burger, at least their burger has meat and condiments and the fries taste like potatoes.
