Well that sucks. Sometimes changing something that is simple yet well made is not a great idea.

One of my favorite places to eat here in Arizona is Chile Pepper/Mr. G's which is a local Yuma only chain. But it's an award winning place. The Bean and Cheese burrito is simple, but it is just well made.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/destinations/2012/12/18/the-best-burritos-in-america/1778287/

I used to get cravings for this place when I lived in Tucson.

But back to Wendy's. You're right. Wendy's burgers should not be greasy. They're pretty well drained by the time you get them. As far as the Baconator goes. The Baconator when I worked there was just a double with bacon on it. The way we would make bake was in a Food safe probably polypropylene container in a microwave. It looked sort of like a plastic shoe box. It was greasy as hell.

I got a Jr Bacon Cheeseburger a year ago. Something seemed different at that point. The patty seemed taller yet with a smaller circumference. Previously a jbc was just a single 8th pound patty with 2 slices of bacon.

But you know what I really miss? The Jalepeño bacon cheddar melt. That was awesome. Whichever version they had when I was working there was great. I used to eat that on my break.

Another thing to note is that article about the change is from 2011. They may have vacillated between burgers over the years.

I used to work at Pizza Hut too, but I got nothing great to say about them. They haven't been good in years. When I eat pizza lately I eat at local chains.

Not in several years. There was one in town, but I don't know if it's still there....but a lookup says it is.

I had Village Inn pizza a week ago. I don't think it's chained with the other Village Inn chain.

Round Table is good, but typically way over priced. They just opened up one in town that is built like a pizza pub, so I've been meaning to go with some friends. If nothing else their cheesy bread is bomb.

I like Pizza Hut but the reasons for it are very specific and oddly enough it might be hard for me to discuss it without getting political so hopefully this doesn't violate forum rules.

The Canadian government has supply management for the dairy industry.  That's strictly factual.  As a result prices for dairy products are largely fixed and there is a very large tariff for importing dairy from other countries.  The price of cheese in Canada is quite high compared to, well, pretty much every country I've ever visited.

As the cheese prices increased pizza places did not want to charge higher prices for their pizzas so instead they cut back on the cheese.  As a result pizza around my area is pretty much all **** and I tend to only eat it when at a party that serves it.  At Pizza Hut if you get the cheese lover's pizza which has "double" cheese it ends up being a tolerable pizza.  Double of half equals one so you get what used to be a normal pizza.

That is an odd situation!  I feel like some places in the US go completely overboard with the cheese.  I went to a by-the-slice place once and it was like eating a giant mozzarella stick.

Its a funny balance. You need a generous amount of cheese to make a good pizza, but some people have a philosophy of cooking that going overboard on ingredients is how you cook well. And too much cheese can be gagging, even for a cheese lover like me.

Possibly due to habit, I actually prefer pizza when they don't go too heavy on the cheese. I want the whole experience to be balanced for flavor and texture; the "giant mozza stick" effect makes me gag a little bit.

(Which is odd. I used to love mozza sticks when I was younger.)


One thing that I do miss is McDonald's pizza. This might just be childhood nostalgia speaking, but it was pretty awesome. The sauce was great, and the crust (did it use cornmeal or something?) was unique.  So yeah, that probably warns everyone that my taste in pizza isn't to be trusted.

I think they have it in Vegas too, at least they used too. Because the Vegas style sign they made for McDonalds on the strip had the word Pizza in it. I assume it was made back when they were pushing that. I haven't been to Vegas in ages though, so it may have changed.

What's this?  There are still McDonald's restaurants that serve pizza?!
Being in Canada, hearing they are available in Florida doesn't help much... but I'm curious if it's the same thing. You'd have to assume not, since the pizza I remember was pulled off the menus in the early 90s.

McDonald's pizza was supposedly still available at the McDonalds in Squamish BC well throughout the 90's.  They don't have it anymore though and this might have just been schoolyard rumour to begin with.

Good call. That's what I got today. $21 for a 12 slice large pizza. It was really really good though. Got some cheesy bread and some cinnamon bread too.
