Sandwiches in Review: Wendy’s BBQ Bacon Value Meals

June 4, 2010

Wendy’s is known for its high quality burgers, chicken, chili, and frosty desserts.  The tradeoff on this is that Wendy’s is usually a bit more expensive than its competitors, with its new menu items going for upwards of 4 or 5 dollars.  In an effort to stay affordable, Wendy’s has introduced two new value meals, the BBQ Bacon Double Jr. Cheeseburger and the BBQ Bacon Crispy Chicken Sandwich. 

Spot the differences between these two pictures!!!

The sandwiches are actually pretty run of the mill.  These days, it’s hard to market barbecue sauce or bacon as a hook in and of themselves.  That doesn’t make these sandwiches bad.  On the contrary, if you’re going to get a BBQ Bacon sandwich, these are a good bet.  They also feature onions, pickles, and American cheese, a tasty combination with both chicken and beef. 

These sandwiches are good, but what pushes them into “great” territory is the price.  A small combo, consisting of either sandwich, fries, and a drink, is only $2.99.  In this economy, most people aren’t willing to splurge on a 6 or 7 dollar fast food combo, no matter how many times you name drop Angus beef or Chipotle sauce.  These tried-and-true flavors are definitely worth it.
