    Environmentalists must be targeting this chain. It is okay to have a burger now and then. As long as they don’t use steroids and meat product like Mc’Donald’s they should be okay. Their burgers look delicious to me and I would definitely try one. There are restaurants that use real meat in their burgers. Wendy’s is one of them. Eating meat is not wrong. It’s necessary for proteins and nutrients that we need. We need to eat a normal, healthy, well balanced diet. We don’t need some crazy extremist deprivation diet of trees, leaves, sticks and berries.
