Lately, in our Southern travels, we have wound up in Randleman, North Carolina, several times around mealtime. Here we were again last Friday night. We stopped at Wendy's, at 1029 High Point Street. Thankfully, they are open late, as we often eat supper late.
Henry selected the $0.99 Crispy Chicken Sandwich, which was surprisingly tasty and certainly a good value. His big cup of unsweetened tea cost more than the sandwich ($1.09)! He also enjoyed a salad, and surprise, surprise, this Wendy's had blue cheese dressing — the first Wendy's we've come across that did.
I got my usual Ultimate Chicken Grill ($3.19), a nice chicken breast with lettuce, tomato, and, by request, onions. I asked for the sauce on the side. They forgot about the sauce, so I went back to the counter to request it. — They were pretty busy and seemingly short-staffed, so little mistakes were understandable.
They also confused our daughter Sarah's order, but corrected it. She got the $0.99 chili, which she described as sort of a cross between Brunswick Stew and chili. It contained lots of meat, red beans, pintoes, onions, celery, green pepper, and seasonings in a tomato base. It was rather mild in flavor. She also had a small Chocolate Frosty ($0.99).
Jonathan tried the new Roasted Turkey and Basil Pesto Frescata consisting of sliced turkey, roasted red peppers, and romaine lettuce on a bread which is billed as soft in the inside and crusty on the outside. Jonathan's bread was chewy and not crusty, but he enjoyed the sandwich.
Wendy's is a dependable place to refuel the human engine.
