Wendy's idea of a vegetarian cheeseburger o_0

Thursday, February 24, 2011

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???

    I was really happy that I could get, basically, a deluxe cheese sandwich. They should have explained that it wasn't an actual burger though. I love those cheese sandwiches. With fries and a drinkI don't even feel like I'm missing out on smith ng.

    GEEEEEE's I never go to those place and guess that's another reason to stay out of them...but what the others said was good they do have salad with out meat and those bake taters are really good if you can handle the calories......

    I am not a vegetarian but have enjoyed Whopper with cheese NO meat many times. It was cheaper too.=)
    Often at home or family BBQ's I fix my burger without the meat especially if there yummy veggies like avocado, sauteed onions and tomato that I want to taste instead of meat or if I am worried that I might bite into uncooked in the middle ickyness.

    OMG! How mean and stingy!
    I can so relate...
    I can't have gluten (a protein in wheat) and have often experienced "oh yes we have gluten free options" and then they don't. The worst I have ever experienced was a burger restaurant who were listed on a gluten free dining website so I went there with my SO. When I asked what the gluten free options where, I was told that I could have the salad that goes on a burger on a plate - no bun - no meat!! So a piece of lettuce, 2 slices of tomato some raw onion and a slice of processed cheese! and then they LAUGHED!!!!
    Many places have latched onto the gluten free thing as they see it as a way to make money and don't realise that it is not a choice, I get seriously ill if I eat gluten - people can be Bast*#ds!

    When I go to Wendy's (I'm a vegetarian - the only one in a family of 6), I get a baked potato. They are vegetarian and much healthier than anything else on the menu anyway. If he's vegan, leave off the cheese. I like the broccoli and cheese one myself. The fries aren't technically vegetarian in a lot of fast food places because they fry them in the same oil as their fish and chicken.

    Actually burger king used to do that too lol. They called it a meatless whopper I think. Kind of gross.
