The Son of Baconator sells for $3.99 at my local Wendy's, but I got mine for free courtesy of Wendy's.
If you've tried a Baconator before, there's obviously not much different with the Son. If you have a smaller appetite or felt the original was too meaty, you'd probably even like it better.
If you've never tried a Baconator, the Son of Baconator is a good amount of bacon and beef. The bacon is thick cut and more like the stuff your fry up at home. It could have been fried a bit longer for more crispiness; as it was, it had some chew to it and I pulled some slices out as I bit into it. This resulted in some bites with lots of bacon (yummy!) and some bites with none (noooo!).
The beef was a good amount for the burger and delivered not quite juicy, but moist beefy flavor. The patties could have done with some more browning and charring as the surface was the same texture as the inside.
The bun was super squishy with a little sweetness.
Saucing was a little bit uneven and I had a couple of very ketchup-y bites.
Overall, the Son of the Baconator is still very nice in its bacony cheeseburger simplicity. There's a lot to like for the meat and cheese set, but also room for better execution.
