Wendy's - No longer offers hamburgers on their menu Mon, 12/12/11 2:12 PM (permalink)
Haven't been at a Wendy's in quite some time (6-8 months?), so I stopped by today on a whim.  Oddly, I found they no longer offer hamburgers on their menu.  I was forced to buy / pay for a cheeseburger and request that they hold the cheese-like product they add to make "cheeseburgers".  Nice way to increase the average check size, but they've lost me as a repeat customer - most likely forever.  Hardees pulled a similar stunt perhaps 10+ years ago when they went to a super-sized regular item.  Never went back.
 
Went to Wendy's "contact us" link at their web site to complain.  Oddly, they required me to enter my state, but there was no drop-down box to enter a state.  How convenient.  Not only did they alienate me with inflated pricing, but then they blocked me from sending a complaint.  My guess is their web site doesn't work with Windows 7.   Why would I ever want to return?

    Pink's does that very same thing with their hot dogs.
     

     
    You want it plain?

      I guess I won't be going back, I hate any cheese other than blue cheese on a hamburger. I haven't liked Wendy's since they took out the salad bar eons ago.

        I just checked the Wendy's website and had no problem with dropdowns for nation, city, state, etc.

          Odd - I just checked again and now it's working.   Perhaps their site was down when I previously attempted to end my complaint. Still don't ever intend to return.

            I stopped a few weeks ago and got one of their new chicken sandwich combo's. Let me tell you it looked nothing like the impressive picture on the wall but did taste OK. I did upsize the drink and the whole thing was close to $10 which I consider way too much for a place like Wendy's.

              My local Wendy's still has plain "Jr Hamburgers" on the menu, but the pricing is odd:
               
              1. Jr Hamburger: $0.95
              2. Jr Cheeseburger: $1.19
              3. Jr Cheeseburger Deluxe: $0.99
              4. Jr Bacon Cheeseburger: $1.09
               
              That's right, the cheeseburger is cheaper if you order it with more stuff.

                I bet 80 to 90% of the people order cheeseburgers, so I guess they are just catering to the Majority............Looks like the minorities loose out on this one.................

                        But it's been reported that today, most people like cheese on their hamburgers ...  or is that extra cheese on their cheeseburger?

                            In my neck of the woods, you cant get a hamburger at Wendy's, and you cant get a cheeseburger on the dollar menu anymore at McDonalds!

                              There is no cheeseburger on the dollar menu at the Ocean City McD, but they do list a cheeseburger for $.99

                                We have the McDouble on the dollar menu here, it's just a double cheeseburger with one slice of cheese instead of two.
                                 
                                I don't eat at Wendy's anymore so I have no idea what they have on the menu now.

                                      Why get so worked up over a slice of cheese? Really?

                                        Well, I happen to get worked up over a slice of cheese. Why should I pay 30 cents extra? Cheeseburgers, in my area used to be on the dollar menu.They no longer are. Period.

                                          How hard is it to ask them for a burger without cheese? Seriously. Isnt there bigger things to worry about?

                                            They definitely DO NOT put enough bacon on their bacon CHEESEburgers.

                                              I stopped eating at Wendy's a long time ago and do not intend to go back, even though the company is separating itself from the so-called Wendy's/Arby's Group.  Besides, I had one of their cheeseburgers once and the cheese was too gooey.  Yuck!  At least McDonald's uses a square slice.

                                                  I had one of their cheeseburgers once and the cheese was too gooey.  Yuck!

                                                    I stopped eating at Wendy's a long time ago and do not intend to go back, even though the company is separating itself from the so-called Wendy's/Arby's Group.  Besides, I had one of their cheeseburgers once and the cheese was too gooey.  Yuck!  At least McDonald's uses a square slice.

                                                     
                                                    So you would rather have just a slice of cold cheese tossed on your buger and not even melted?

                                                      Stopped at a Wendy's yesterday. Hadn't been to one in at least 10 years. They had a cheeseburger on the menu for $1.19 and we order two, one order of fries, two small chocolate frosts. Found, when we got to our table, a dried up skinny patty of meat, some product passing as cheese, a slice of unripe tomato, some tired lettuce, a bit of unknown sauce, all served on a greasy bun. The fries were a bit limpy - the frosted was so-so soft-serve ice cream. 
                                                       
                                                      Too late, we checked our bill and found we had paid $13.78 for our lunch - the cheeseburgers were $3.99 each. When my wife complained she was told she should have specified the $1.19 cheeseburgers. They, of course, were right...
                                                      "I'll have two of Dave's Juicy Cheeseburgers, The Dollar Nineteen Size". And this is loudly repeated from clerk to fryer to packer throughout the store...
                                                       
                                                      It'll be at least another 10 years before we return to Wendy's.
                                                       
                                                      Cheers, John

                                                        I have to concur with the naysayers.  Of all the many, varied and valid reasons not to eat that garbage, having to say "please hold the cheese" seems pretty low on the totem pole.

                                                          So you would rather have just a slice of cold cheese tossed on your buger and not even melted?

                                                          McDonald's tried that once; it was called the McDonald's McDLT or something like that (with a two compartment box with one holding the top bun half, lettuce, tomato and cheese, which you folded over to assemble the sandwich). Didn't last long.

                                                            I'm no huge fan of Wendy's, but here we have the 99 cent Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe which is pretty good for the price.  I didn't see any plain hamburgers on the menu.
                                                             
                                                            Seafarer, I wouldn't have liked that $13.78 bill for lunch either.
                                                             
                                                            Re the cheese, I can take it or leave it and I don't really care if it's gooey or cold.  I don't think I've had a "gooey" FF cheeseburger in a long time.
