Fast Food Review: Wendy's Monterey Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich
Then I guess the sandwich went away (although to be honest I don't remember; there was about a decade where the only fast food I ever ate was In-N-Out,) briefly reappearing from time to time. I remember the sandwiched fondly, but in the same way I loved those microwavable fries, or the WWF wrestling that I watched while I ate them: it was fun as a kid, but would I really like them now?
Over the weekend I read a press release that Wendy's would be releasing a 99-cent version of the sandwich, called the Monterey Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich. I had to give it a try.
Wendy's was a zoo, as always. It took me more than ten minutes to place my order, but less than thirty seconds to receive my food. There were about a dozen screaming kids running around so I took the sandwich to the car.
like the second time I tried the Asiago chicken sandwich - but very good, and, considering the 99-cent price tag, a great value. This easily would have won The Great Value Menu Chicken Sandwich Showdown last summer. The chicken was crispy, the lettuce was fresh and the bun was soft.
I don't know if every Monterey Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich is going to be as good as this one (my guess is no) but if so, this is going to be a huge hit. Wendy's already had my favorite value menu in the fast food business - thanks mostly to their spicy chicken nuggets - and this only makes it better.
