The W from Wendy’s

The W is the latest from Wendy’s.  A double cheeseburger with a special sauce.  Advertised at “just $2.99”.  Yeah, we’ll see about that.  Can someone point me in the direction of a participating Wendy’s? 580 calories, 32 grams of fat, 40 grams of carbs, 32 grams of protein.

The “W” – with emphasis on the DOUBLE – serves up two 2.25-ounce patties of sizzling, fresh, never-frozen North American* beef, with double the cheese, too. Topped with our zesty signature sauce, the “W” – like our recently-launched Dave’s Hot ‘N Juicy Cheeseburgers — is made-to-order the right way with fresh, quality ingredients: sweet red onions, hand-leafed lettuce and crinkle-cut pickles, all on a buttered, toasted bun.

    Maybe it’s just my Wendy’s but regardless of the burger, it’s never hot :/ Luke-warm, at the best.

  2. Nick says:

    Tastes exactly like one would expect it to. The typical Wendy’s burger flavor doesn’t really escape as a result of the new sauce.

  3. Robby says:

    This looks pretty good. I doubt it’ll replace my usual spicy chicken sandwich but, looks good. Does it come with the tomato as well?

  4. I tried it yesterday actually! It was only $2.99 here in Fort Worth, TX. It was actually suprisingly good. The meat was thicker and had the characteristics of the new burger, just smaller. the sauce was good at first but it got a little to sweet after a while.

  5. Roger C. says:

    Wendy’s burgers are definitely great now. They need to go back to the old fries and bring their combo prices down though.

  6. SkippyMom says:

    How come it shows a tomato in the pic’ but doesn’t list in the ingredients?

    It looks good – but is basically the equivalent of a quarter pounder with cheese and big mac sauce.

    I’d rather have a big mac.

  7. Pete says:

    When I asked about it earlier this week, I was told it was two Junior cheeseburger patties – so I went with a #2 instead.

  8. Lylat says:

    I think mines has it but out of random there was picture there of a new chicken sandwich with guacamole that i saw when i last went there i forgot what it was called and its not even on the website weird…

    Wendy’s burger meat is not my favorite fast food beef compared to others. While it’s generally fresher not being frozen and cooked to order, the flavor is less appealing to me. However when paired with the right things(baconator style) it becomes one of my favorite fast food burgers. I’d be interested to know how the flavor stacks against mac sauce and stacker sauce so I’ll be sure to try.

    This was a solid burger, IMO. The “zesty signature sauce” as most have probably already guessed is a muted 1000 Island type sauce. I do wish they had gone a bit farther with the sauce to make it more distinctive. As it stands, I enjoyed the burger, but it isn’t anything that I’m going to go out of my way to get again.

  11. bianca says:

    We got it in Portland, OR but I didn’t try it because I usually don’t like special sauce

  12. Andi says:

    I tried it today… Tasted like a double stack with more toppings. I’d rather just have one of new single cheeseburgers (which I absolutely adore now).

  13. This is really good! I had it day before yesterday on the way to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. I was quite surprised, in a good way, and think it’s the best Wendy’s burger on the menu! The price is great too – cheaper than a single!

  14. somesteve says:

    Wu Tang Forever! I mean I wanna try this burger…in Shaolin.

  15. Lylat says:

    Just out of random while i was at wendy’s today to try that burger i finally saw that new one again it was called Spicy Guacamole Asiago if i got that correct its a surprise i would see a big picture of it on the glass but not on the menu.

  16. jenne says:

    It looks like a Double Double ripoff.. except with the DD, I get good service and hot fresh food…unlike Wendy’s.

    • Benjy says:

      I really don’t understand why In-N-Out groupies have to constantly mention the fact that they eat there in situations where it’s completely uncalled for. There’s little about this burger that resembles a “DD”, to use your hip lingo, other than the fact that it’s also a burger.

      Who truly cares about “good service” when getting fast food anyway? As long as they don’t get my order incorrect, I could care less if they stood there and barraged me with a string of insults directed towards my mother.

      • ashley says:

        No. You’re wrong. Dead wrong. This is a clear in and out ripoff. Have you ever even had in-and-out? Wendy’s even wraps the burger the same way in-and-out does. Half opened. Why do they do that? They don’t do it on any of there other burgers. I don’t know anybody else who does that but in-and-out. It’s a ripoff of the animal style in-and-out burger.

  17. Chris says:

    Just had the W Burger. George Bush would be disappointed. Anyhow, this burger would be good without that salad dressing stuff that tastes like bland 1000 Island. This is basically the junior double stack that sells for $2.49 they just add sauce, lett, tom and red onion. I ate the whole thing! It was alright.

  18. Jay Drake says:

    I tried this burger and liked the sauce, but other than that not so great. Much prefer asking for the sauce on a double (more meat!) or even a baconator (double, of course) instead of the barely there patties that come on The W.

  19. tbray says:

    We go to Wendys about once a week. The single cheeseburger here in Tampa is $4.16 with tax. I read about the W. I bought a single cheeseburger and a W and shared i/2 with another office worker. The W won. It was bigger and only cost $3.20 with tax. If you don’t want the sauce, they will leave it off. It has all of the fixings,too.This includes tomatoes.

  20. hating on the W says:

    The special sauce tastes like cole slaw, but minus the crunchiness that cole slaw normally contains. Actually, the pickles gave the illusion of the crunchiness of cole slaw. And then we have the fries. They suck. If I wanted potatoes, I wouldn’t have ordered fries. They were soggy and mushy and tasted really potatato-ey, not crispy and delicious and warm like they should. Also, by the way, the W looks nothing like it does in it’s commercial (which I see all the time, which is why I finally went out and got a W today), it doesn’t look that pretty and perfect in real life. Overall, the W was okay and I finished mine, but I will never order it again. It was pretty satisfying, though, in terms of filling me up.

  21. Lambert says:

    It’s a double stack (99 cents at my Wendy’s) with an extra slice of cheese, vegetables and sauce. I suspect if I added all those items to a double stack it would not triple the price.

  22. Keith says:

    If you google “wendy’s W burger,” this article is the number one result – over the ad page on Wendy’s website. Not bad.

    I tried this today – my burgers were dry and a little rubbery, the toppings left much to be desired.

    But I have to say, I enjoyed the sauce.

  23. replaced says:

    Complete crap!

    The W uses the same patties that were in the double cheeseburger! The double stack was priced at 1 dollar so this is a total ripoff!

    Now the double stack has been removed from the value menu. Great, now I got to pay $1.99 extra for a small amount of vegetables.
