I worked at Wendy's while in high school.  The chili meat is the hamburger that sat on the grill too long, which is then steamed.  Mix that with a seasoning packet and some beans....deliciousness.

Put it in a baked potato and that was a decent college student priced meal.

^Pretty much. Chili and a baked potato. That was a go to cheap meal for me.

Lol.  It may be the best thing on the menu.  I'm still not ordering it.

The building is unremarkable except for its signage which sticks out like a sore thumb. Garish - what is the point or need for that in Five Points?

I mean, it's a Wendy's. It looks fine. Certainly it's miles ahead of the current Wendy's. I think their building now is to the point where it is impossible to get it totally clean. It was kind of gross when I was in high school 20 years ago (didn't stop me from eating the chili tho). Best option is a tear down and rebuild.

The chili is okay for a meal on the cheap. I spent a pretty penny over the years at Wendy's during my college days.

I single-handedly kept the Ocala & Pensacola Wendy's in business in Tallahassee during college.
