I like Wendy's food when they get it right. I went there for lunch which on the other side of town. Mind you Carl's ad is not a large town but seeing that I only get 30 minutes for lunch it is a little far. I ordered the apple and pecan salad. Got my order and went back to my... More

Don't usually do fast food reviews, but this Wendy's was pretty good. compared to the Wendy's back home. We had spent the morning exploring the Caverns. Just wanted something quick to eat on the way to our next destination in Roswell. The store was very clean, the workers were extremely friendly and pleasant and unlike most Wendy's, my burger was...

I went through the drive thru today about 1pm. I use to work at Wendy's several years ago and I know they have to get the orders out quickly but not so quick you are snatching money and all but throwing the change and food at the customer. Please slow down enough to hand the food to your customer and... More

Was okay, fries were cold and normally I love their fries. Kind of dirty in the dining area. Not the best I've had.

Picked up food here on trip to Carlsbad Caverns. Giving this place 5 stars because the workers were nice and the food was typical Wendy's and there were no surprises. Restaurant looked clean too.

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
