New Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich from Wendy’s

The pretzel bun is getting some more love at Wendy’s.  Earlier this year Wendy’s released the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger and next in line to don the pretzel crown will be the Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich.  Uh oh, cheddar cheese sauce is back.  The addition of Muenster cheese looks interesting.  Picture submitted by GrubGrade reader Kevin in Vancouver, BC.  Priced at $5.89 in western Canada.  If you spot the Wendy’s Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich in the States, leave a comment with the price you’re finding.  No word on a nationally promoted run for this sandwich just yet.

    I was a bit disappointed with the burger version, mostly because of the ‘spring mix’ weeds they put on top of it. The greens were VERY bitter and took a lot away from both the beef and cheese. Add in the slight bitterness of the pretzel bun and the whole combination of tastes left a sour note in the mouth.

  2. Roger C. says:

    I believe at my local one in Michigan, it’s $4.99.

    I saw this at the Carousel Mall in Syracuse, NY but I didn’t get a chance to see the exact price. I think it was in the high 4 dollar range.

    @Scrape – That is one of the biggest reasons that I don’t like lettuce of any kind on a burger or hot sandwhich, the bitterness is just too distracting, and it doesen’t provide any kind of real flavor or texture.

    I think this sandwhich could be good, but I think that the pretzel fad has kind of gone a bit too far, we shall see, I might have to see if I can find a coupon to try this one.

      That “spring mix ” was terrible! I picked it off, had a lot of stems, and some PC were purple, very bitter! Give me ice berg. Also too much salt for me,but that’s what ya get from a pretzel! Very messy to eat, but still good

    I’d rather have spring mix over iceberg any day. At least it adds a little nutrition. BUT what is up with them and this cheese sauce they are putting on all these things. I get taking it off, but I feel like putting an extra cheese on is just stupid.

    Spotted in NY. $5.69

    Still blows my mind that fast food is as expensive as it is. $8.29 for a combo? For about $9 or $10, you can go to a local restaurant and get a sandwich that’s bigger and better. The prices of things at most places now is why I tend to stick with Taco Bell. (Riveting tale, chap!)

    • Scrape says:

      Yea, its up there. Thats the biggest problem with Wendy’s, its just too expensive now. We’re talkin 5 Guys or Smashburger prices now without the quality or portion. Even though they advertise the Monterey Chicken Sangwich at a ‘buck’ nationally, my local is a dime short of TWO bucks! I know they are trying to go “upscale”, but do it at a reasonable and consistent price like the other two bug burger chains. Wendy’s is broken and has lost me as a regular customer and I only go if I get the rare coupon online, and then it takes them a half hour, the manager, and keys for them to figure out how to accept it.

      • Robert says:

        $8.29 is nowhere NEAR Five Guys pricing. Regular cheeseburger, mini fries, small drink is $11.20 by me in Indiana.

        But I never get combo meals at Wendy’s. Way cheaper to get a premium sandwich and then a cheap burger/chicken sandwich on the side. Bam.

    Had one in Pasco County FL yesterday, between 4-5 range. Got it with grilled chicken, tasted really solid.

    • Joshua Armstrong says:

      I’m in this area too. I really enjoyed it! I subbed mayo for the honey mustard. Subbed a spicy chicken patty. Had them make my patty and fries fresh with a strawberry lemonade. Upgraded to chili cheese fries. 9 bucks? It’s worth it if you force them to cook your food fresh and enjoy it at the store. I wouldn’t date spend that kind of money to get something thrown in a bag via drive through!

      PS I used to work at Wendy’s in highschool. I’m a registered nurse now. They’re pretty legit in their food preparations. As a guilty pleasure once and awhile you’ve got some tasty fresh options!

    $4.89 here in Utah. I got it spicy. Not a bad sammich, although the cheese sauce is strange.

  10. BigBelly says:

    sounds better then the burger to me, less the honey mustard sauce

    as far as muenster cheese, if it’s the American version, it’s a young cheese, and rather bland, but melts well… I suspect that’s what they are using, because the French or German versions are mature cheeses, and would have a sweaty locker room smell, which I don’t think will be very mainstream LOL

  11. Katie says:

    Loved this sandwich!! In Casper, Wyoming for $6.99. Pricey but I couldn’t finish it. It was humongous!

    I love a pretzel bun sandwich, when it is done right. I tried the Wendy’s burger, and while it was good, it wasn’t great, and not something I’d get again.

    Having said that, I might try the chicken version.

    I have since found pretzel rolls here, so I can do my own burger, hot dog, sausage, etc. far better than any FF place, but still think I will give this a try. What I didn’t like from the burger was their mustard sauce, and the extra cheese (cheese and melted cheese) – it seemed to be too much. I never tried to get a Baconator with the pretzel bun, which many people suggested, and I think that would be great. But their standard offering wasn’t anything worth repeating.

  13. Lylat says:

    Found it here in Newark,NJ for

    $5.29 and $7.59 for the meal.

  14. Brandi says:

    Spotted in Columbus, Ohio for $4.79. Not bad.

  15. Todd says:

    I just ordered it at my local Wendy’s in Michigan. It was $5.17 for the sandwich. I ordered it to go and when I opened it up it was the Pretzel burger not the Pretzel Pub Chicken sandwich. They even asked me if I wanted it Spicy or Homestyle so I don’t know how they messed that up.

    They’re in Toronto, too (or atleast Toronto Courtyard on Yonge). My date had one the other night, it looked so yummy that I decided to break from my vegetarian-or-fish convention and have a bite. We both liked it. And I’ll be breaking from convention again tonight to have one of my own 🙂
