And on a search of Yahoo Answers:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=1006011602815

The true reason is that it maximizes the amount of meat used when it's being cut into patties. They roll the meat out into large area "sheets" in the meat packing factory, and then cut the meat patties out from the meat sheets. If they were to cut round burger patties, there would be meat left over (imagine cutting 4 circles adjacent to one another from a piece of paper - the paper that's left is analogous to the meat that would be left if the patties were round).
In that case, they would either waste a lot of extra leftover, unpattied meat, or they would have to gather all of the leftover meat and roll it up into another sheet, flatten it out again and cut more patties - then repeat this until the meat wasted was minimized. This would waste a lot of time.
So rather than waste meat and/or time, Wendy's simply cuts the patties into squares, in which case no extra, waste meat remains after the patties are cut.

no really its because they dont want to cut corners.. its a statement on the overall quality


when the store first opened they did not use meat packing plants and the square pattie just works great in mass production

No...that's not a joke...it was actually what Dave Thomas said in commercials about the square hamburgers. That it was a symbol to show that they don't like to cut corners.

Maybe so, but it still sounds like a punch line; a damn good one.

I try to avoid most fast food places, but if I had to choose, this would be my priority list:
1. Wendys
2. A & W
3. Burger King
4. McDonalds
Subway is better than any fast food burger joint anyhow.

It really depends on what you order. Sodium levels are pretty high at Subway and if you're ordering a meatball sub on white, there's not much difference from a hamburger.

Don't drink Jared's kool-aid my friend. The crap that subway serves is just a different pile of crap than from the burger joints.

All junk food is OK, as long as you order a diet drink with it.

Subway has proven to be much healthier. I usually order a nice turket breast sub, with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, pickles, etc. I use light mayo not too much with a pinch of salt. This is approx 12,439 times healthier than the Big Mac However, it is only 8,447 times healthier than a teen burger.

If the turkey breast is processed it ain't that healthy.

C'mon. Google is your friend. Check out what the cancer experts say about processed meats.

Hurtin Alberta- I cut back in my salt for awhile and my foot went down to size 13 from 14. On your sandwich it is the pickle and "light salt" that may do all the damage. I am not sure what you get from the light mayo. Most TV ads for "healthy" food seem to be centered on fat, but I find that the sodium content is the killer. A&W's burgers are loaded with salt, just as all the others are.
I make hamburgers at home and load them with pepper, and that cuts back the sodium by over 50%.
I have no idea what that means, but I think that all it does is make my life more miserable!! I believe that Health canada has no clue as to what is healthy, as they seem to change their
