Review: Wendy's - Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe

Wendy's Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe is the deluxe version of the humble Jr. Cheeseburger and comes with a square Jr. hamburger patty, American cheese, pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. It's part of Wendy's 99 cent Everyday Value Menu at my local Wendy's.

The problem with the Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe beside this new bun they seem to be ninja-testing (I think it's a whole wheat white bun), is that the thin meat patty doesn't hold up well against the bun and the all the other ingredients (it looks like it has the same amount of tomato and onions as Wendy's larger burgers). A thinner or less dense bun and perhaps even less pickles and onions would actually make for a better burger in this instance.
As it stands, I didn't much enjoy the Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe because with the poor meat to bun/veggie ratio, it didn't taste much like a hamburger. Plus my bun wasn't even toasted at all!
I would point out that the picture on Wendy's website seems to shows more leafier, green lettuce such as Romaine or Butter lettuce but the sandwiches I've gotten always come with fast food staple, iceberg lettuce. Now I'm not hating on iceberg lettuce; it doesn't have much in the way of nutritional value but it's much more crisp than other lettuces and holds up better against heat. I just don't know why they don't just use iceberg lettuce in the promo shot.

I would definitely go for the Doublestack or Crispy Chicken Sandwich over the Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe for the same price.
