I'm not sure I can eat at Wendy's again after enjoying Dave Thomas' obvious inspiration for his 'classics' We loved it. It's like a deliciously tasty bite of Americana.

Whenever we are in Lima we eat at Keepee Hamburger. The place has a great history in Lima and the burgers are wonderful and the price for what you get is inexpensive.

If you are in Lima stop and get a burger and fries of course. You won't be disappointed at all. I also enjoy their chili.
