Chipotle's new menu items are always received with hoopla and excitement. Garlic Guajillo Steak is a limited-time combination of garlic, guajillo peppers, lime, and cilantro.
All of that is well and good, but some patrons are less than thrilled, criticizing the business for its mediocrity and skimpy portions that don't warrant the premium.
Times can be difficult. Prices fluctuate. But there isn't much leeway with fast food when it comes to inflation, which is unavoidable.
There is only so much that people will put up with, despite the fact that fast food prices have risen significantly over time to the point that Dollar Menus are now seen as ironic jokes.
The Frostys at Wendy's may be shrinking in size, just as some chicken sandwiches seem to be doing, which is an issue given how adored they are.
Customers loathe Taco Bell's latest ad campaign, in which comedian Pete Davidson "apologises" for the restaurant's breakfast choices, despite the fact that the company is always testing new menu items.
These fast-food franchises are snug, quick, easy, and reasonably priced, yet they often make terrible marketing choices, offer questionable meats, receive food quality complaints, and add horribly unhealthy menu items that would give a dietician nightmares.
Loyal customers are quick to point out the hits and misses—especially the latter—as major fast-food restaurants like Chipotle, Wendy's, and Taco Bell experiment with new things.
