My fast food allegiances vary day to day. Sometimes I'm feeling the Big Mac, other times it's the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich, and time-to-time I crave those Jack-in-the-Box curly fries. But when Wendy's comes calling with a buy-one-get-one (BOGO) deal (on the Baconator, no less), I answer.
The new promotion is simple: buy one of the chain's iconic bacon-stacked double cheeseburgers (it'll typically run you $6.09, fyi), get another for $1. It's no freebie, but it's an objectively good deal if you're super hungry. Wendy's, of course, is pretty keen on giving you cheap food. The chain kicked off the 2 for $5 deal in October and partnered with DoorDash to give away free Double Daves that same month. Not bad.
In case you've been, I don't know, living under a rock, let me fill you in on this classic meat stack. The Baconator features two of the chain's signature square patties (totaling a half-pound of fresh beef), American cheese, six pieces of crispy applewood-smoked bacon, ketchup, and mayo on a toasted bun. It's one of those burgers that oozes streams of greasy ketchup when you bite into it.
