For most fast food places, I have a one item that I gravitate towards whenever I’m there. It’s a bit different when I’m at Wendy’s because there are a couple I keep on rotation (which makes it sound like I do eat a lot of fast food…). I think it’s because they have so many options that are more than just fries and burgers, so I do appreciate the variety.

Here are my Top 5 items I get from Wendy’s:

1. Cheeseburger
When I’m in the mood for a burger, I get Dave’s Single Cheeseburger. I really like the taste of the their beef patty, it just tastes so much better than all the other fast food burger joints. One reason and the one they are very proud about is the fact they use fresh, never frozen beef in all their patties. Plus their beef is 100% Canadian, with the beef raised in Canada. I find that the toppings are much better tasting in comparison to other fast food places – there’s tomato, lettuce, red onion and pickles – all the essentials of a real burger. I also think that the toasted bun makes a world of difference too.

2. Spicy Chicken Sandwich
I like the fact that Wendy’s also offers great chicken sandwiches as well – this one in particular is made with chicken breast. This sandwich has a nice little kick – I remember they had the Ghost Pepper chicken sandwich on their menu not too long ago and I loved it a lot, but this is a nice substitute.

3. Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad
Normally, you wouldn’t think of ordering a salad at a fast food place, but when it comes to fast food salads, I think Wendy’s wins. They have a good assortment of salads, but the Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad is my favourite. It’s got grilled chicken, feta, hummus and sundried tomato quinoa. It’s definitely very filling and will keep you pretty full!

4. Sour Cream & Chive Baked Potato
Normally when I order a burger, I go with a potato or salad – and most often I go with the potato. I love baked potatoes and to have this as an option is so good. The sour cream and chive gives the potato a nice creamy consistency.

5. Baconator
When I’m feeling like I need a full fledged meat burger, I go for their Baconator. I’m glad to see it on the menu full time. They’re not playing around with their bacon – they use thick Applewood smoked bacon, 2 quarter pound fresh beef patties and 6 slices of fresh cooked (not microwaved!) bacon. To top it off, they slather on mayo, ketchup and cheese. Definitely one of my favourites items on their menu.
