Wendy’s is home to the delicious square beef patty, the hot and spicy chicken sandwich, and the ever-popular frosty. With the “mascot” being the Lil red-haired girl with the pigtails, Wendy’s is extremely popular all over the world. The first Wendy’s opened its doors in 1969 in Ohio. The founder, Dave Thomas, created the “pick-up” window in November of 1970. One of the things that stand out for a lot of people when you mention Wendy’s; the “Where’re the Beef” commercials.
Not only does Wendy’s produce juicy hamburgers, fresh-cut french fries with sea salt, fresh salads, desserts, and some locations now serve breakfast sandwiches, they also boast a secret menu. This scrumptious menu was created by loyal Wendy’s customers. Patrons who have an imagination and need for amazing food combinations.
If the employees at Wendy’s look at you like you have lost your marbles when you order a secret menu item then you have to do 1 of 2 things; explain it to them or order the regular menu items and combine them on your own. Let’s delve into these delectable secret items.
The Best Items from Wendy’s Secret Menu
If you are a bacon lover and a beef connoisseur, then this secret menu item is going to hit the spot. After all, what is better than combining juicy beef patties with perfectly cooked bacon? With this sandwich, you won’t need it, but will probably want french fries.
For the Quadruple Baconator, you are going to combine 4 of the signature beef patties, with a slice of cheese in between each patty. Next, you are going to top it with perfectly crisp bacon. If you choose to do so, you can add lettuce, tomato, pickles, and onions.
For those of you that do not know which animal to choose from “Old McDonald’s Farm”, beef or chicken; why not just choose both? Making lunch easier to order so that you do not have to play ‘eeny meeny miny mo’. With special menu items, you can have your chicken and beef at the same time on the same sandwich.
To produce this farm-fresh sandwich, you will need to order a spicy chicken sandwich; adding cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Then you order the popular baconator burger. This will give you the beef patty and the bacon for your Barnyard Burger. Once you get to your eating destination you simply put the beef patty and bacon on your spicy chicken sandwich and voila, you have the Barnyard Burger.
When it is cold outside and you need something to warm up your insides, you can order Wendy’s chili. Perfectly flavored and satisfying on its own, it will hit the spot. If you are wanting more than just a good ‘ole cup of chili then why not combine it with one of the freshly made burgers from Wendy’s regular menu?
This sandwich should be simple enough to order, but it may be something that they are not allowed to do at the restaurant. If you can not order a Chili Cheeseburger, then you will have to order your cup of chili and your desired hamburger separately. Once you have your items, simply put a spoon (or 3) of the chili on the top of your cheeseburger. Perfection!
T. Rex Burger
This is for those individuals who have an enormous appetite or maybe just want the challenge of wrapping their mouth around this huge burger, gloating that they were able to eat it all. Not all Wendy’s establishments are going to serve this gigantic burger, but you can definitely create it on your own. This monster has 9 beef patties! You also have cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle.
To put together this monster burger on your own, you are going to have to order 3 of Dave’s triple burgers and put them all together. That is 9 beef patties, 9 pieces of cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo, and ketchup. Who is up for the challenge of the T. Rex Burger?
Crispy Pub Sandwich
Instead of ordering your sandwich and your french fries as separate portions of food, why not go to the next creativity level and combine the 2 between the 2 soft buns? Then you get a crispy chicken sandwich with a load of flavors; beer cheese sauce, shredded cheese, and applewood smoked bacon pieces.
When you order this original treat, you simply order a plain crispy chicken sandwich (or add a little spice and get the spicy chicken), and an order of Wendy’s Pub Fries. Remove your top bun, load the fries and all of the delicious melty cheese onto the top of your chicken and you have created a 1 of a kind sandwich.
Spicy Asiago Beef Burger
We are going to take this a step further. Instead of ordering the Asiago Chicken Ranch Sandwich and substituting the chicken for beef; we are going to substitute the crispy chicken with the spicy crispy chicken and add a delicious beef patty, plus lettuce and tomato.
To place your order for this sandwich from paradise, simply order the Spicy Asiago Ranch Club and your favorite Wendy’s hamburger or cheeseburger. Place the patty on top of the chicken patty with all the trimmings and you have a perfect blend of flavors to satisfy all your taste buds.
Grand Slam Burger
Since we are on a roll with the huge hamburger concoctions, let’s give you one more. Those guys and gals with a hearty appetite after a long, hard day of working on a farm need to try the Grand Slam. It is a 1 pound burger that would go great with an order of fries and an ice-cold Pepsi.
The Grand Slam Burger may not be recognized at every Wendy’s location, so there are 2 possible ways to order this; you can order a 1 pound quadruple burger or you can order 2 double cheeseburgers and combine them. That is 4 beef patties, 4 pieces of cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion if you want to add them.
How can we do a secret menu from Wendy’s without adding an original secret menu item that involves the very popular Frosty? It is just unthinkable to not add this to our list of amazing originals from Wendy’s patrons all over the world. The frosty is creamy, thick, and delicious. A flavor that no one else has been able to duplicate.
Super simple to order, extremely tasty to the taste buds, and not so bad on the wallet either. Just ask the cashier when you order, to add your favorite frosty flavor to your cup of hot coffee. You don’t need much. It will give you the perfect combination of warm and sweet. The frosty cool the coffee just enough so that you will not burn your tongue.
