Fast Food News

Perhaps you heard about the Wendy’s 60th anniversary special this Wednesday, October 22 in which all hamburgers will be sold for 25 cents, cheeseburgers for 30 cents, fries for 15 cents, and drinks for 10 cents. Unfortunately, it’s not true. For one thing, you would think that the Wendy’s website would promote this heavily. They do not. The biggest indication that this special is false is the fact the first Wendy’s opened on November 15, 1969 in Columbus, Ohio. It’s hard to have a 60th anniversary when you’re not even 40.

In other fast food news, Long John Silver’s is awesome. I don’t get to eat there very often, so when I have the opportunity, I take full advantage, even if the meal and the crumbs take several months off of my life. I’d like to thank the staff at LJS in Abingdon, Virginia for providing an excellent meal and superb customer service. Everyone there was so friendly. It’s basically the exact opposite of the experience you receive at COSI in Arlington, Virginia. LJS is also introducing its first non-fried fish menu items later this month. It may be healthier but it can’t taste as good as the current menu, can it?

Non-fried options? That's very cool for those of us who suffer from deep fried remorse on occasion.

Lacochran - If you want non-fried options you can go to hundreds or thousands of other restaurants. If you want fried options, you go to LJS!
