We stopped for lunch a drive from New Orleans to Kentucky. It was the typical Wendy’s fast food and the staff was friendly. It was cleaner than the other Wendy’s we’ve been to.

Didn't have what we wanted & took a long time just to get someone to take our order at drive thru. I had to speak first to get someone to ask to take our order. We just left.

I ordered a potato, nuggets and tea in drive thru. It was all hot and fresh and cost only $6. Service was fast and friendly. Restaurant is in good location just off the interstate and is in a well lit, safe area.

If you don't expect to be greeted, thanked or see a smile this place will do. The fries are great, the hamburger was barely warm and there was probably half a dozen workers and less customers in the whole place and yet it takes forever...More
