It is all we can chew



Is it bad now? I haven't been in a
Wendy's since the early 80's.
But I still read good things about
their chili. I got regular food poisoning
from their salad bar in 1983 and have
never been back.

I like Wendy's chili very much. Is it going to win a chilI cook-off against good restaurant chili? Nope. Is it better than any other fast-food chili available? Definitely. The only other chain I know of that offers any is Steak and Shake, and Wendy's tastes fresher and lighter. It's watery compared to chili gravy in most, but that's how my mom made it, too, so that might affect my opinion.

I started the year off at 315 lbs. Through diet and exercise I am down to 250 lbs. Anywho, for father's date I am breaking my diet and my wife made me biscuits and gravy for breakfast and we are going to get ribs at the best BBQ joint in town.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

cheesecake factory mushroom burger

I'd been eating cheaper burgers such as McDonalds.
This burger was way, way better - much higher quality meat.
Bigger too, it had to weigh no less than one half of a pound
It was a little bit pricey ($13.95 with fries) but I got 2 meals out of it so when you look at it that way the price was comparable.
I'm going to stay at this level on my future burgers.
You can get it with a salad or fries. Next time I'll get a salad. The fries made the meal a little heavy.
I'm not going back to Mickey Dees. No way Jose.
I'm a happy camper.

I have only eaten it maybe 3 times in my life, my wife raves about it. I think it is probably the best tasting fast food chili?

Your home made sounds good, I have never had cocoa in my chili, I wonder how that would be added to canned chili? Which btw way always seems undercooked these days. I think it has a sweet onion taste which I like.

Does anyone else think canned soups like Campbell's is not the quality they were 40 years ago? I opened up an out dated can of Campbell's tomato soup the other day, and it was dark and stank, I threw it out.

I've gotten food poisoning from salad bars also, I hate that. I was stuck in Valdez one time for weeks, every piece of lettuce in town it seems carried food poisoning, so every salad regardless of where I got it made me sick.

Wendy's chili gets good reviews in
some places, lots of people love
it. It's 10 steps above that crap
Hormel makes in a can..

The only reason Wendy's has chili
(spelled correctly )is that they don't like tossing out their old
burger patties. Also, they need someplace to hide things like
fingers and whatnot. Not too many FF joints serve chili.
People only like it because it's cheap, quick
and they don't know any better. I will admit, it's not bad for a
fast food place. it's never consistent and oftentimes its very
watered down.

You probably shouldn't compare your chili to Wendy's.

the chili that is offered at my grocery store with the freshly cooked soups along side the salad bar is much better than Wendy's chili

I think that's probably true with most groceries that prepare chili with their soup and salad bars

I ate microwavable pork rinds today. They are much better than they sound and only have one carb.
