When you go to a fast-food restaurant like Wendy’s, you expect to have food served to you faster and at a lower cost. But if you’re not careful, a Wendy’s run could cost you more than you’d expect.
This is where paying attention to Wendy’s prices and coupons pays off.
But if you don’t feel like doing the legwork (feels), we have you covered with our value choices at Wendy’s. No more do you have to question if what you’re paying is worth it.
Spoiler: everything on this list is totally worth it.
Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger
The bacon cheeseburger is one of the most recognizable items on Wendy’s menu.
With 100% pure ground beef that’s fresh and savory, melted American cheese, and the thick-cut applewood smoked bacon, many people head to Wendy’s just to satisfy their bacon cheeseburger craving. But those looking for value can order the junior version.
This super easy swap gives you just the right size burger for a cheaper price.
Crispy Chicken Sandwich
One of the lighter options on the Wendy’s menu is the crispy chicken sandwich.
Basically, instead of a beef patty, you get a tender, breaded chicken patty that’s fried to perfection. The flavors from the chicken are complemented by Wendy’s signature creamy mayo and some crisp lettuce.
Value Natural-Cut Fries
Fries are a fast food staple no matter what restaurant you go to, and Wendy’s is no exception. Plus, value is right there in the name.
These fries are cut from whole russet potatoes and deep-fried with the skin. Then these bad boys are sprinkled with some sea salt. These fries are as real as real can get. Well, without making them yourself. Which is just a huge pain, by the way.
The value-sized size is the way to go if you’re looking to be cheap about it.
Six-Piece Spicy Chicken Nuggets
If you’re craving for value with spice, you can get the six-piece spicy chicken nuggets. Guaranteed to make your mouth water.
The all-white-meat chicken made is seasoned with three different types of peppers and savory spices. This gives you nuggets as you’ve never had them before. The value version gives you just enough to make your day a little more interesting.
If you’re not in the mood for something spicy, you can still get the four-piece chicken nuggets. Crispy on the outside and tender inside. Same valuable, but without any of the heat of the spicy chicken nuggets.
Wendy’s caesar side salad is made of freshly cut romaine lettuce and shredded Asiago cheese. The value size makes it the perfect side to any entrée, but you can also have it on its own. And their caesar dressing is – no lie – one of my favorite versions ever. Vinegar-y enough and not fishy.
But another option is their garden side salad. It’s just as delicious, but made with totally different ingredients. It has the standard array of mixed greens, sliced cucumbers, red bell peppers, and grape tomatoes. Your choice on dressing though.
Small Chocolate Classic Frosty
Wendy’s Frostys are legendary. So popular, in fact, that they occasionally create a key tag just for these sweets. The smaller size gives you a taste without making you suffer in terms of calories and cash, so it’s the best value you can get.
And, if you didn’t know, Wendy’s does breakfast now, which is also great. And right now if you order through GrubHub, UberEats, or another food delivery service, you can grab a discount on this already cheap grub!
