Menu Review

Want old-fashioned burgers that are fresh and never frozen? That's Wendy's for you. Quality is their recipe and it shines through across the whole menu. Get a big beefy Baconator and a classic Frosty in chocolate or vanilla. You can also ask them to customize any sandwich just the way you like it. Don't want mayonnaise? No problem! Wendy's makes it fresh so you're never stuck with some old burger that's been sitting under the hot lights for an hour or more. Fresh is the name of the fast food game at Wendy's!
