A time to pity a billion-dollar fast food chain

Inandout2 FORT WORTH - Hard really to pity a giant, cash killing-cow like Wendy's, but in this particular instance it is difficult not to muster at least a Frosty's worth of sympathy.

The photo above was taken this morning from the parking lot of a Wendy's that is all but adjacent to the new In and Out Burger that is nearly completed in Fort Worth's 7th Street district.

I am optimistic that while Wendy's will remain a viable company, and profitable, serving its slightly over-priced menu, this particular location may be better off dropping into a sinkhole for the forseeable future.

Seriously ... how many people plan to use Wendy's parking lot to walk over to this In and Out location? I am sure there will be a sign posted that won't allow said parking, but is the Wendy's manager going to patrol the lot with a broom?  It may be worth it to buy a Frostee at Wendy's, and then walk over to In and Out to stand in the four-hour lines that are expected.

Your continued coverage of this newsworthy story is admirable.

Next time we come to town, lets plan on parking at the Wendys and eating at In-And-Out Burger.

I'll treat everybody to a mouthwatering, heart attack, grease filled meal.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm... in-and-out burger!

No question the new burger joint will give Wendy's a run for its money. And you are correct in saying Wendys is a little over priced.But lets face it. In and Out Burger has not cornered the market on fast food

LONG LIVE THE BACONATOR!!!!
