    Looks good to me

    That’s interesting – two ends of the “value” proposition spectrum today: Wendys $5 for a double burger, chicken nuggets, fries and a soda. Arby’s $6 for a premium sandwich only.
    Personally, the Arby’s sandwich sounds more appealing.

  3. Josh M says:

    This is essentially a “son of baconator” deluxe for couple bucks cheaper.

    Son of baconator combo is $6 + Nuggets $1 = $7 (not including the upcharge to add lettuce and tomato to the sandwich to make it “deluxe”).

    It’s pretty good deal from Wendy’s.

  4. Brian says:

    I’d still prefer the double stack meal for $4 but I can’t imagine Wendy’s was making any money on those. This still seems like a good deal.

    Burger King also has the 2 cheeseburger meal with fries and a drink for $3.49 in my area. With a 10 piece chicken nuggets for $1.49 that’s a decent amount of food for $5+tax.

    The JBC has always been my favorite smaller sandwich from the fast food chains, so this definitely intrigues me.

  7. Chris says:

    It’s a good deal, but with 10% sales tax, it’s another dollar and a dime. Yes, I’m cheap, and I”m happy with a Hardee’s big burger and a cup of water. With the dollar off coupon on the sandwich whenever possible.

    • MP says:

      10% of $5 is not $1.10. But still, the tax would be a moot point considering you’re going to add tax equally to the prices at all the competitors too.

      • Chris says:

        $5.50 compared to $4.40 is $1.10. I don’t like paying sales tax in this town because of the awful roads and high crime/slayings. So, yes, I like to eat as cheaply as I can if I’m spending money in Birmingham Alabama. Which is actually a decent town most of the time, but we do pay a premium.

        However I went for the wendy’s deal today and they made it a single patty Giant junior. I definitely Won’t be ordering it again, if I have to approach the window to correct things once I’m nearly done with my meal.

        Filled me up though. I’ll give them that. but fifty cents tax is a rip-off and I know you fortunate people live where the taxes are less, so good for you.

    In Maryland, this will be somehow $6 special or even $6.29!!!

    Had this yesterday. To be honest, I think I like the regular JBC better. The bacon from Wendy’s is always on the chewy side, so with double the amount, it makes for a very chewy sandwich. I also thought that the 2 slices of cheese was a bit much; gave it a “stick to your teeth” kind of texture.

    Still a great deal though. Wish the 4 for $4 Double Stack meal was still around. Not sure if they even have any 4 for $4 now with this new deal.

  10. BBB says:

    Had this today for lunch and it was a great deal. It helped that the bacon was crispy and set the sandwich off. The normal JBC is $2 at my local wendys so for $3 more you get a heartier sandwich with nuggets, fries, and a drink? Sign me up! This is almost as good of a deal as the taco bell cravings deal!

  11. JP says:

    Tried it today, yes it’s bigger than the regular JR, but not by much. But with the 4 for $4, I’m not usually full, and paying $7+ for the other combos always makes me feel stupid for not buying a 4 for $4, so this works for me. But they wouldn’t allow substitutions like with the 4 for $4 where you could switch the nuggets for chili, or fries for baked potato, for a 50 cent upcharge.

    I ordered a JBC today and got the Giant JBC. It was a good day.

  13. CulinaryZerg says:

    “Giant Junior” Bacon Cheeseburger

    Or in other words, “Medium Sized” Bacon Cheeseburger, lol

    I’d like to have mine with “Biggie Little” fries and a “Large Small” drink.

  14. doctorx0079 says:

    This is basically the form in which the Big Bacon Classic returns. I’ll take it.

  15. Jonathan Wayne says:

    This was actually good, the JBC never seemed right but this brings the right amount of everything to the mix. It’s $3 separately so the $5 combo price is a good deal.
