Wendy's Secret Menu

Wendy’s Secret Menu Items

Quadruple Baconator

If you are looking for the BBD (bigger, better deal) of bacon burgers, then Eureka! This is it bacon miners!

How To Order:

Many Wendy’s restaurants will serve it as a “Quad Burger” and if they don’t, simply order the Triple Baconator with an extra patty. The Quad Baconator comes with apple-wood smoked bacon in between each of the 4 patties. Add lettuce, tomato, pickles, and onions.

Barnyard Burger

It’s a turf and turf wonderland! The Barnyard Burger gives you every kind of animal from the farm on this “burger sandwich”. There is a beef patty, spicy chicken patty, bacon, ham, and cheese in every bite.

How to Order:

Order a spicy chicken sandwich and the Baconator Burger. Adding cheese, lettuce, and tomato is a popular option here. Combine the beef patty and bacon onto your spicy chicken sandwich to build your Barnyard Burger.

Chili Cheeseburger

Wendy’s chili is the best in the fast-food chain industry hands down. Add it to any burger, and of course cheese makes everything better.

How to Order:

Most Wendy’s will not combine the duo for you, but that’s an easy hack. Simply order your beast burger and a cup of chili separately. Spoon your chili on top of your burger. It’s the perfect burger on those cold days.

Crispy Pub Sandwich

Mix up your sandwich, mate! Wendy’s serves Pub Fries that are exceptional. Pub Fries are natural cut, skin-on, sea-salted topped with warm beer cheese sauce, shredded cheddar, and crispy apple-wood bacon pieces. They deserve a gentleman’s doff without a doubt! Now combine these with any Wendy’s chicken sandwich. Go spicy chicken.

How To Order:

This is a delicious hack. Order any crispy chicken sandwich and Wendy’s Pub Fries. After removing the bun, load the fries and all the melty cheese goodness on top of your chicken. It’s Pubtastic!

Nugget Nachos

Transform your nuggets into a nacho style masterpiece with this menu hack.

How To Order:

Order Spicy Chicken Nuggets (or regular if that’s more your style), a small chili, and ask for a side of cheese sauce, and sour cream. You don’t have to stop there. You can always ask for a side of tomatoes, bacon, an ranch dressing too. Go wild!

Baconator Fries & Nuggets

This one isn’t necessarily something on the secret menu, but it is a menu hack you might want to try.

How To Order:

Order the Baconator Fries and an order of spicy nuggets. Break the nuggets into pieces and put them on the fries, and top with ranch or your favorite sauce. Put the lid on, shake it up, and enjoy.

T. Rex Burger

This monster of a burger may have started out as an Urban Legend through the fast-food grapevine, but it’s not hot gossip anymore! Adjectives like behemoth, massive, or colossal just shrink the T-Rex Burger. It’s a nine-beef patty BEAST! Not all Wendy’s establishments are going to serve the T-Rex, but it’s definitely easy to create it on your own. Don’t skip the cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion.

How to order:

Just ask for it by name. They may recognize it or not, but this hack is simple. Order 3 of Dave’s triple cheeseburgers and combine them together. 9 pieces of cheese? Yes, nine, smothered in ketchup and mayo.

*You can also make a Jurassic Burger, which is the same as the T. Rex, but with 10 patties. You know, for those of you that are really famished.

Spicy Asiago Beef Burger

This spicy hack took some real thought and ingenuity. Wendy’s Asiago Chicken Ranch Sandwich is great, but this sandwich is next level. It’s a mouthful of crispy chicken all spicy and nice with beef, lettuce and tomato.

How To Order:

Ask for the Spicy Asiago Ranch Club and your favorite Wendy’s hamburger or cheeseburger. Place the beef patty on top of the chicken patty. The rest is up to you.

Asiago Beef Burger

If the Spicy Asiago is just too hot to handle, here is a safe spinoff. The Asiago Beef Burger replaces the chicken in the Asiago Chicken Ranch Club with a beef patty. You still will get the Asiago cheese, bacon and ranch dressing. Most Wendy’s will have it on their secret menu.

How To Order:

Ask the cashier for it by name. Just in case, have a cheat sheet handy. There might be a newbie working at the counter.

Grand Slam Burger

We’ve found the beef! Do you remember that award winning “Where’s the beef commercial”? The Grand Slam Burger is a 1-pounder that is also known as the Meat Cube Burger. It has 4 beef patties and four cheese slices if you order the Grand Slam Cheeseburger.

How To Order: 

Most Wendy’s will not recognize the Grand Slam, but this is another super simple hack. Just order two double burgers or cheeseburgers and the rest is elementary. Put them together with all your favorite fixings. Try asking for a slice of cheese in between patties.

Frosty Coffee

The Wendy’s Frosty is the most iconic dessert in the fast-food world! Patrons with sworn allegiance to other chains still sneak to Wendy’s for her Frosty. It’s no surprise that the Frosty has its own place on the secret menu. Coffee and Ice cream? Winning!

How To Order:

When you order your coffee, ask them to add your favorite frosty flavor. Presto! You can have your coffee and dessert in one hand.

Big Bacon Classic

Need even More Bacon? The Big Bacon Classic towers Wendy’s traditional bacon burgers. This off-menu standard comes with a single beef patty burger and extra applewood-smoked bacon on top of a bed of crunchy lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup and mayonnaise. Order it with or without the veggies.

How To Order: 

Ask for it by name.

Cheeseburger Deluxe

Wendy’s regular cheeseburger is available deluxe style. You’ll still get a beef patty, a slice of cheese, onions, ketchup, pickles, mayonnaise, and mustard. Deluxe means extra lettuce and an extra slice of tomato.

How To Order:

Ask for it by name. Keep in mind you may have to ask for a cheeseburger with extra lettuce and tomato.

Frosty Float

It’s music to our ears. Wendy’s Frosty just leveled up. The Frosty Float has been discontinued as an official menu item, but fans have worked around this easy peasy! The Frosty Float is a Frosty filled with your favorite fountain drink.

How To Order:

Ask for a Frosty Float with your favorite drink. Maybe the employee will gladly serve it up or you may have to walk up to the fountain station and fill’er up yourself. Make sure you let the cashier know your plans.

Valley Crispy Chicken Club

The Valley Crispy Chicken deserves a second chance. This club used to be on the actual menu, but it’s not a ghost to those who know how to order it.

How To Order:

It’s Crispy Chicken, mayo, tomato, lettuce, and bacon. Let the cashier know what you want on your chicken sandwich. Wendy’s has all the ingredients for the Valley Crispy Chicken Club.
