I don't wanna be a Wendy's truther, but almost 20 years ago when I worked there, every burger ordered from the place was in fact hot off the grill. The grill was basically divided in half - on one side you cooked the 1/4 lb patties, and on the other side you cooked the smaller patties for the juniors, double-stacks, etc. Based on business, of course, you would lay down X number of raw patties, turn them at the specified time, then they were 'done' at whatever time the manual said, then they sat on the grill...and sat...until they were ordered. If they sat cooking for so long they seemed unappealing, they went into a huge pan on the steamtable that would later be used for their famous chili. So yes, everything was 'fresh off the grill'. I assume they still do it this way now. Chicken patties for sandwiches and stuff were kept in the stereotypical drawers like they are anywhere else.
As far as the 'too fast' question - I wish maybe a couple of those employees would come to my local Wendy's, because I've never had that problem or anything close to it.


Bringing kimchi to a potluck is kind of like bringing a bottle of ketchup, especially if you're only bringing one kind. If you're gonna bring kimchi and claim that it's a dish, you better have AT LEAST three or four kinds.
