So my family and I went out to Wendy's for my MIL's birthday today, I had the chicken pecan salad with apples and cranberries (brought over half of it home),
and my MIL had the same, my husband (the vegetarian who hates going to fast food places because many do not cater very well to vegetarian needs) has no clue what to get, so his mom, gets him an oreo shake and fries and asks them if they have a veggie "burger", they say "why yes, that is on our special menu. So, thinking he would get something like a "Boca" Burger she orders him that, boy were we surprised... They basically gave him a bun with cheese, NO BURGER, lettuce, pickles, onions and ketchup. (And my MIL paid how much for this "BURGER"?, I don't want to know.) I was quite disappointed for my husbands sake to find out that Wendy's pulled something like that.
At least we know Burger King has an actual option like Boca and doesn't try to weasel there way through a sale by giving them a bun with no burger and just veggies and cheese, my jaw just about dropped to the floor when I saw his sandwich. I kept telling him to just get a salad and ask for no meat, but he wanted a burger, and even in the end did not get one...
At least I got a full meal and within range of my plan. I can be happy about that, but I really think restaurants like this should cater better to vegetarians, just a thought.
Opinions on this please???
