    Watch the fries be like $2.99 in the DC metro area. Anyways, these are just to increase profit margins. I know they will taste great, but one meal will set you back like $10 with fries upgraded. Imagine having a family of 4 wanting these???? Better to go to Red Robin or Fuddruckers.

      Sure most products cost a few cents more in a place like DC… Cost of living is generally higher where a greater proportion of tax dollars gets pumped, that just makes sense. But I’m pretty sure that if you’re going to cover your fries in cheese & bacon, that’s the meal, it replaces the sandwich, that’s plenty of food for a meal for any adult. You don’t *also* eat a sandwich, goofball, good god, pace yourself… not every meal needs to be eaten like it’s your last.

        I like to eat like it’s my last meal in prison because the next time I would eat at Wendy’s would be like next year. I eat there like once a year.

    Messiest thing ever, I couldn’t even finish it and I always do! It wasn’t very good. =(

    • Alex says:

      Amen. This might be a polarizing item. I found it disgusting, but I think it was mainly because of the salsa. But I even took out the top but that had the salsa on it and it still tasted pretty bad and dry.

    • Joe Cool says:

      Completely disagree. It was good. And I’ll have it again just to spite you.

      • LL says:

        This word “spite”…. I don’t think you understand what it means, unless, wait – do you feel spited when people like eating something you don’t like? Haha your life sux!

    I actually noticed the sign about a week ago and had the chicken version – very good, and quite spicy!

    Wanna try the fries.

  4. Kevin m says:

    This looks a must try for me. All my favorites in one.

  5. Roberto says:

    I enjoyed the fries, but I could have done without the salsa on the burger. Might try it again and ask for that to be left off.

    What, no ranch?

    • stilletkniv says:

      Never understood this old cliche, seems irrelevant, besides being an optional dipping condiment there are so very few fast food items that come with ranch on it… Not a very good troll: 2/10

  7. Richard Ginn says:

    I had to 6.29 for the chicken version. Highway robbery for sure.

  8. JJJ says:

    This was ok, but I’d rather have the fresh jalapeno sandwich instead.

  9. M-Logan says:

    The queso fries are $2.49 in St. Louis, and were well worth it.

  10. BigBelly says:

    Tried the burger version tonight, the salsa is very thick, it’s like salsa paste, kinda weird tasting, like they opened a can and let it sit to long, and it oxidized. Not much shredded cheese and the queso wasn’t oozing except for one bite. I’d give it a 7, and doubt I’d get another.

    I had one yesterday, and I thought it was pretty good. The salsa combined with the jalapeno bun was kind of funky but it was interesting. Mine was not particularly messy. I would get this again. It is nowhere near as hot as the jalapeno fresco sandwich. That one blew my mouth up.

  12. Joe K. says:

    I had the chicken version with the spicy chicken breast. At $5.87 for the sandwich only it was ok-ish. While both the chicken and the bacon were actually hot temperature wise – the sandwich itself was dry. They had a good idea with the actual cheddar cheese and the poblano queso cheese sauce. As for the “fire roasted salsa” I don’t know because they forgot that. The bun was nothing special to me. Overall I liked it but won’t get it (or the burger or fries) again.
