Son of Baconator Joins the Wendy’s Menu

Any Baconator fans out there?  Wendy’s is introducing a smaller version called Son of Baconator.  Looks like a winner.

Following in the footsteps of dear old dad, Son of Baconator is not to be taken lightly. Wendy’s stacks four strips of Applewood Smoked Bacon onto two 2.25-ounce patties of 100% pure, North American, fresh, never frozen beef. This hearty bacon cheeseburger also features two slices of melted American cheese, ketchup and mayonnaise and served on a premium buttered, toasted bun.

    looks good

  2. Helldog says:

    The name really rolls off the tongue.

  3. SmoledMan says:

    Bride of Baconator? Baconzilla?

  4. Dave says:

    I think Baconzilla is the name of one of Checker’s burger.

    Wonder how much they are charging for it. Will have to remember to look into stopping by Wendys next time I’m around one.

    • Isny says:

      Probably around $4-$5. We’ve had these in Canada forever now and they run $4-$5 depending on the location.

      I got this a couple of days ago in MD and still have the receipt. I ordered the sandwich alone and it was $4.27. I believe the combo is $6.49 with side and small drink.

      I was actually a little suprised at how big it was since it’s a smaller version of another sandwich. I’m not sure I’d even want to meet his dad. Menu board said the original is 8 oz and the son is 4.5 oz.

  6. Jonathan Wayne says:

    Definitely looks like it could be a winner.

    More like “Banned in New York City.”

    I don’t understand Wendy’s. I understand beef naturally has trans fat in it, but how does their 100% ALL NATURAL, NEVER FROZEN BEEF have 1.5 grams of trans fat per patty? Gtfo, Wendy’s.

    At least their chicken is le tasty.

  9. Brandon says:

    Wouldn’t Baconette sound better?

  10. I like the name the Wendy’s around me is just so sub par compared to the one I used to live around……..

  11. Devino says:

    I’ve had this before! They must’ve been testing it in the Utah markets. It’s basically the W in a Baconator form. I think I remember the price being either $3.99 or $4.99, but that was a few months ago.

  12. Bob says:

    Too bad wendy’s is terrible.

  13. Matt says:

    Mmmm I do love a Baconator…

  14. Bill says:

    Sounds good. Might try one today. Wendy’s is my favorite place for burgers. Love the single baconator.

  15. Addison says:

    Man, I’ve had this in my town for months, maybe even a year… weird. I also thought I saw a commercial for it too, on the TV. Stranger and stranger.

  16. Gutty says:

    So, this is a single Baconator with a half ounce more meat, a smaller bun, and an extra piece of bacon for like two dollars more? Or am I missing something?

    • Reggie says:

      It’s a Double Baconator with 2 less bacon strips and the same smaller patties used in the Jr. burgers. Which is why it’s a bit odd they didn’t call it Baconator Jr.

  17. SmoledMan says:

    I just looked up the calories on this thing – this is NOT a healthy option!

  18. jenne says:

    of course….just when the Wendy’s across the way from me just went under. BTW @SmoledMan…ya think? even turkey sandwiches these days are high on the bad list…. have you seen the numbers from the Turkey Asiago from Arby’s? as bad or worse than most burgers… I don’t know how they managed that one…

  19. Justin ST says:

    $3.89 Wendy’s? Pretty hilarious.

    Sorry, you’re not quite up there with 5 Guys yet.

    “Son of Baconator”? Running contradiction.
