Let me preface this by saying, I’m not a BBQ girl. I don’t mind BBQ sauce, but I mostly dip fries into it. And I LOVE grilling, but rarely eat a huge plate of meat. So while I’ll give this my best shot, I’m also not going to give the most accurate/appreciative review. My boss took my co-worker and me to lunch, so I’m not complaining. And the food we got was good. Service was very friendly. And although the restaurant was busy, it seemed to be run very efficiently. I’d also like to say I love the Delano area, and wish there were more housing options around there and the area felt a little safer, and I’d be checking out spots to live. But that’s neither here nor there. Well, I guess it’s there, but it’s barely relevant to this review.

Can you feel the love tonight? The peace the evening brings. The world for once, in perfect harmony with all its onion rings.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s hummus and pita. So if you invite me out for Mediterranean/Lebanese, (I won’t lie, I am culturally inept, don’t make me figure out the difference) I’m in. Even if just for hummus, pita and a beer. Mat called lunch this time, citing Lebanese pickles as his weapon of choice. A quick browse around the Internet landed us in Byblos’ lap. Excited? Yes, please.

I’m a sucker for advertisement… And since I’ve never LOVED Wendy’s fries, I decided I’d give their “natural cut fries with sea salt” a try.

First of all, let’s be clear here: No matter what you fry the fries in and what kind of salt you put on them, they’re NOT healthy. I’m not sure they’re marketing for health appeal, I think it’s more from a “real deal” perspective. And while these fries were leaps and bounds better than their old fries (unfortunately, this means I’ll want Wendy’s more often than just a random cheeseburger), they weren’t anything amazing. They were crunchy (which is an upgrade from their old soggy fries). And they were ironically overly salty (whereas I remember Wendy’s as the place that throws salt in your bag because their fries are so bland).  Let’s meet in the middle on the salt wagon, Wendy!

We’ll still throw in a packet of salt. But you won’t need it!

Overall, though, the fries were an upgrade from the old. And Wendy’s must know it, too, because they’ve flat out replaced the old fries with these newbies. They’re marketed as “naturally cut from a Russet potato with skins on.” I definitely didn’t think they tasted fresh cut and fried, but still. Upgrade.

Where could I go wrong? “A flour tortilla filled with sausage, eggs, roasted peppers and onions, pepperjack cheese, and spicy chipotle sauce.”

Um, yum! Right? Nope. Wrong-o.
