Review: Wendy's - Barbecue Cheeseburger

Wendy's Barbecue Cheeseburger features a grilled, quarter-pound beef hamburger patty, two slices of American cheese, crispy-fried onions, three pickles, and a sweet and smoky Kansas City-style barbecue sauce.

I paid $5.09 for one.

Wendy's treads pretty familiar territory with the Barbecue Cheeseburger but they do a competent job of it.

The beef patty was juicy with a nice sear on the surface and a somewhat loose, coarse grind. The cheese that surrounded the patty was mostly melted.

The crispy-fried onion pieces added a lighter crispiness and more charred notes than you might get with onions rings. You're also less likely to pull a good amount out when you bite into it compared to onion rings.

The barbecue sauce was light on the tangy notes and offered a measured amount of sweet and smoky flavors. The pickles enhance the barbecue quality with a lighter sour bite than the typical fast food pickle as well as a heartier, thicker crunch.

While it's not particularly exciting as far as novelty goes, Wendy's Barbecue Cheeseburger is an enjoyable take on the burger type that manages to balance the various components well and delivers on the barbecue theme. I am a little surprised they didn't decide to add bacon to it though.
