Review: Wendy's Go Wrap

I stopped at Wendy's this evening at Prince and Campbell in Tucson and went through the drive thru.

I wasn't terribly hungry so I decided to order a Grilled Chicken Go Wrap. These wrap things are all the rage at fast food restaurants (at least a few) so I thought I'd review one for you.

Wendy's offers three varieties: Grilled Chicken Go Wrap, Spicy Chicken Go Wrap, and Homestyle Chicken Go Wrap. The difference between the three is what kind of chicken you want on it. Grilled chicken is grilled chicken, homestyle chicken is a breaded piece of chicken, spicy chicken is a spicy breaded piece of chicken. They are on the Wendy's Super Value Menu and they all cost $1.69.

The challenge I encountered when I arrived at the drive thru is that the menu board wasn't lit up and it was pitch dark at 7:45 p.m. It almost made it look like the restaurant wasn't open. I hope that isn't a common practice at that Wendy's or they might wonder why they are slow late at night. That location is across the parking lot from a Safeway but its difficult to know if a business is open without lights outside to indicate it.

I knew what I wanted so the dark menu board didn't create an issue. I ordered a Grilled Chicken Go Wrap and a small Diet Coke.

This is not the first time I've had a Wendy's Go Wrap. They are pretty tasty and come with the chicken choice I mentioned earlier, a sauce of some kind that's like a thousand island dressing, a little bit of cheese and a little bit of lettuce wrapped in a tortilla.

I know I can't expect much for $1.69 so my expectations are low. As with every other one of these I've eaten it wasn't wrapped very well (the tortilla around the food). Basically you get half the amount of chicken you'd get if you ordered it on a sandwich.

If you are looking for a light snack then a Go Wrap is alright. If you're really hungry you're probably not ordering off of the Super Value Menu anyway.
