Review: Wendy's - BBQ Bacon Double Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe

Wendy's BBQ Bacon Double Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe profile view - no bacon!
The small burger with the really long-winded name, Wendy's new BBQ Bacon Double Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe features two hamburger patties, onions, pickles, honey BBQ sauce, two slices of bacon, and a slice of American cheese on a toasted hamburger bun. I'm told by a reader (PulledPorker) that the chicken version sandwich by itself costs $1.69, so I'm assuming the double cheeseburger version costs the same.

However, what Wendy's is really promoting is the combo which includes a small order of fries and a drink for $2.99. I decided on the combo.

I ran into a little hitch in my order as I reached home...

There was no bacon in my BBQ Bacon Double Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe! Fortunately, I live close to my local Wendy's and promptly walked back and got a replacement (Bullet dodged!).

So after getting my second burger and walking home (I'm burning calories right?!), here's how it's supposed to look:

My thoughts on the burger: The BBQ sauce was inoffensive; it's very mild and a little sweet. The thicker Applewood smoked bacon provided a thicker, crispy, and substantial texture but not too much flavor. The onions were crisp but their strong flavor might be a turn off for some; I didn't have a problem with it though.

For the size, there was a substantial amount of beef. The American cheese was standard and nicely melted. The pickles, on the other hand, were rather lost in the mix.

Taken as a whole, I thought the burger was decent but could have been a lot better with a more stronger, more complementary BBQ sauce. I can see people liking this burger though, especially for the price.

  1. I loved the burger. But if you get it you might as well get the combo because the burger itself after tax (in S.C.) ran $2. Combo is just a dollar more. Haven't tried the chicken version.
