Wendy’s (Kingsway)

I miss the Wendy’s tv commercials with founder Dave Thomas.  I think ever since he passed on, Wendy’s has been going downhill.  They used to have a number of different salad options at a reasonable price but the selection has gotten worse over time (and more expensive)… I know… who goes to a fast food joint for a salad?  Still, sometimes you’re in a rush and you don’t have a salad spinner on you.

On the plus side, the salads at Wendy’s aren’t as bad as McDonalds and the lettuce isn’t brown.  I picked the Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad which comes with their regular salad greens topped with a chicken breast fillet.  The chicken itself really isn’t very spicy.

I couldn’t, however, tell that the mushrooms were portabellas because they slice them so thinly… they could have easily been regular mushrooms.

On the plus side for Wendy’s, I still like their chili and frosty.

On the minus side, service is a little slow for a fast food joint (especially considering the salad and chili is already pre-made).

Just because there was a salad in this meal, don’t consider it healthy… I went on their website to find out the nutritional content of this meal:  2,090 calories, 123 g of fat, 4,670 mg of sodium, and 145 g of carbs.  Ironically, the salad was the worst item of the bunch.
