I like my buns HOT

As a prior member of the Wendy's family (in my teens), I know how customers should be treated and how the food should be handled. I was also "Wendy" for the San Antonio rodeo once when I was 16. My family of five stopped at this Wendy's location on our way back to Texas for a quick lunch fix... read more

late on the way back from watching the bats exit Carlsbad Cavern. They have some good salads here. My hubby got the traditional cheese burger, they still have the square neat paddy!

Food was good as any other Wendy's. The only things were it was a bit dirty, and only one toilet for both men and women. It's off a main road, so you know there will be a lot of drivers, you might want to expand that area. Service was very good and so was the food.

It was late. We were coming back from Carlsbad Caverns. We decided to pick up some fast food and take it back to our room. After waiting on a long line in the drive through I finally got to place our order. The employee struggled to get it right. I should have known that I was in for more trouble... More

We stopped here on the way back from the caverns and the line was out the door. There aren't too many fast food places in town, at least not near the route we were taking through town. Wendy's is something the whole family likes so we stopped in. I don't know if was abnormally busy, but the staff wasn't doing... More

We waited 15 min at the front of the line before our order was taken. There was no greeting or even "I will be right with you," from any of the 6 people I counted in the back. When we were finally waited on the girl was very impolite and was totally lacking in people skills. All the tables were... More

The girl who took our order was having a bad day, bed week, bad month or bad year. Talk about rude. This is not the type of person Wendy's usually hires. Corporate needs to give her a pink slip.

We chose Wendy's because we were in a hurry and know we like their price and quality of food, however we waited in line at the counter for at least 15 minutes. In the meantime, one employee was cleaning the women's room and kept coming out to say how unsanitary it was only to complete it and go back into... More

Stopped in to pick up a quick bite to eat for the evening as we are having to stay late for work. First, the staff did NOT speak English. Second, the food was cold. Well, let me rephrase that; the burger I had was barely warm and the fries were stone cold. Wendy's says they make your food fresh, this... More

We arrived in Carlsbad (after a long drive from El Paso) at about 9:00 at night. We decided to stop at Wendy's for dinner before finding a hotel. They were obviously short-staffed & training new people in the back, but we stood at the counter for 5 minutes before someone came up to acknowledge us. By this time, there were... More
