The One Fast Food Restaurant Buddy Valastro Can't Get Enough Of
By Camryn Teder
Buddy Valastro found fame operating his family-run bakery Carlo's Bake Shop on TLC's hit reality show, "Cake Boss," and he also owns the Italian-American restaurant Buddy V's in Las Vegas. It may seem like the chef would only prefer fine dining and decadent pastries for his palate, but there is one fast food joint that he's particularly fond of.
Valastro is partial to Wendy's, particularly the chain's spicy chicken sandwich. Although he gave nods to other chicken sandwiches from chains like Popeyes and Chick-fil-A and burgers from McDonald's and Burger King, he remains a big fan of Wendy's.
However, as Valastro mentioned in an interview, he isn't exactly picky when it comes to fast food. "I'm a pretty easy guy. Being a dad of kids that are teenagers, there is always fast food in my house, so I'm always stealing a french fry or two," he said.
