Perhaps Wendy's tried to impose here the "Californian taste" on  
hamburguers - bad move... For example, those pieces of dry and burnt meat  
that Americans call "barbecue" have nothing to do with Argentinian  
"asado", and nobody here would eat such "barbecue" if given a choice. On  
the other hand, McDonalds and Burger King have been here for a long time  
now, and it seems they learned how to please the local consumers (McD even  
has some certified kosher stores).
